I would say yes, it’s going to be hard to do the candida diet but it’s by no means impossible and you’ll find out some great things about your body and how it reacts to food, as well as finding your tastebuds awakened!
For the first 3 weeks, don’t have any rice – use quinoa instead – and then try a small bowl. You’ll be able to tell pretty quickly if there is a reaction to it right then and there. Also – are you believing your rice problem stems from ALL rice, or just white processed rice? Try brown basmati or black rice and see if they are more tolerable.
You may not see changes to your health immediately but they will come, just use supplements to speed things up and definitely take a good quality vitamin c powder and probiotics. My most noticeable improvement is my skin and whilst I have ups and downs being on this diet (day 69 today), I always am told that I look well.
The other thing to help you along is to use this forum as often as you like. Most questions are answered or discussed and it’s great to know that people all around the world are on the same journey as you.
Hope this helps.
