Some additional information for you.
I am actually a 24 year old female, who, in the interests of physical appearance and general well-being, already had an extremely healthy diet before I started the Candida cleanse! The only thing I am struggling with cutting out from my diet is fruit! I never had much of a sweet tooth and the only ‘indulgence’ I would allow myself to have was dark chocolate. And I am talking the organic 70%+ variety! The only dairy I would consume was natural greek yogurt and I never allowed myself to eat processed carbs. I actually barely ate carbs at all! A high fibre cereal (with almond milk) in the morning was where it began and ended with carbs for me! The rest was salad, meat (once a huge juicy steak every night until the candida made me intolerant to it) and vegetables.
There is no doubt in my mind that I have Candida because on reflection, every one of my ‘episodes’ of candida were immediately – to a few days following a binge on sugar or alcohol.
I can imagine that if I ate the ‘standard american diet’ and was thus experiencing these symptoms constantly and at a greater severity then my story of my die-off effects would be very different!!
