What is true is I have never had the same energy level I had when following an anticandida diet. Moreover, I believe most people are looking for to be “normal” and to resume their life with a social life that allow them to look normal , but no someone from another planet. I have been told for many candida sufferers this diet suck. I am one of them who think it. It is necessary to fight CRC but pretending to live in this way is real a concern. We are human and are alive !! We want fun, parties, social life, and many delicious food this diet limit. The experience and knowledge after this illness demonstrate there are better eating habits but nobody wants to be an slave of any diet for the rest of their life. Less, to say about fruit, diary, and many other healthy things are out this diet.

We should have real and better aspirations, at least I want them. No to say I want to go to straight to a pizza and coca cola but many, many things a normal human do and are necessary to brake this isolation.
