I’m on phase 2 of the Candida diet, and it took me seven months to get here, There was no way I would have touched cottage cheese or any other dairy product other than plain Greek yogurt during the 1st phase, and I have no intention of eating dairy products again. I can live without those. The people who think they can start ‘working in’ phase 2 products early on during phase 1 are only kidding themselves, and setting themselves up for failure. Without knowing it, we can slowly be feeding the Candida that’s still in our system, and one day BANG … the full force of a Candida infestation will show itself in the worst ways possible. And don’t say that can’t happen, it’s happened far too many times in the past.
The truth is, there’s simply not a ‘perfect Candida diet’ that’s going to suit everyone’s needs and tolerance level. Experiment, but cautiously, throughout your treatment. That’s all any of us can really do to survive. Three food items saved my sanity during the long, seven months of phase 1, discovering coconut flour, sardines, and Organic Yellow Mustard made with apple cider vinegar. Take about adding taste to an otherwise morbidly bland diet.
