I can’t say one way or the other if it’s done any harm (yet?). I am almost seeing it as a cheat because I feel some guilt in eating sugar after being so good for a full 3 weeks. I suppose the only cheat I had was munching on some cheese over a week ago (I was not aware if cheese should be strictly avoided or not).
At only 3 weeks, I would consider any fruit to be a cheat, but a healthier one.
I noticed that when my candida wasnt that bad, I wouldnt notice evidence of the “cheat” being bad until there was some momentum…like the cheats building-up until I saw a reaction.
I had a good day yesterday where I ate only fruit all day long, sprinkled with some cinnamon, and im still not noticing any ill effect. But yet, I know that if I continue this behavior so soon ( I have only been using a modified diet for aprox 11 weeks) it will eventually catch up with me.
Cheese is absolutely a cheat. All dairy feeds yeast.
Maybe your candida overgrowth hasnt been around long enough for cheese to have caused a noticeable effect?
