I’d agree mostly with raster here–the answer isn’t simple and it depends on many factors. When I was in nutrition school (candida is a HUGE topic there), we were taught that candida can never be comlpetely eradicated. What that means is, you need to get it down to manageable levels so your own immune system and good bacteria can keep it in check. SO, if you eat 90% “good” and 10% “bad,” then it will just take longer. The idea is to starve out the candida, but if you feed it a little, it will just lose weight, not starve. Eventually, it will probably get better, but it will take a lot longer.
When I first started the diet 3 years ago, I cut out all sugars (including fruit) for the first 4 months, because my symptoms were horrific and I wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible. Later, I just wanted to eat a piece of fruit. So I reintroduced non-sweet fruits like apple, berries, etc. Maybe I prolonged my healing (it took over a year), but it saved my sanity. I also used gluten-free flours, tofu (I’m vegan) and more nuts than are recommended on most protocols.
The upshot is that you can probably find an anti-candida diet somewhere or other that allows you to eat things you’d like to eat. What you have to ask yourself is how long you’re willing to prolong your symptoms in order to consume those things.
Good luck with it!
