Hey, welcome. I don’t have an answer to your first question about Prilosec. As for your second question, the detox/colon cleanse phase is just that: it cleans you out. As such, I’ve read that taking probiotics during that time is sort of a waste of money. Maybe someone else can weigh in on that point, too.
A couple of knowledgeable forum members have compiled alternate versions of the cleanse and the strict diet, including a modified food list that’s more restrictive than the one on the website. Most people on the forum are using this version. I can personally attest that it’s been working for me!

Protocol for the strict diet: http://www.thecandidadiet.com/forum/yaf_postst1334_From-Able-and-Raster-The-Protocol.aspx
If you’d like the stricter food list, you can send a message to Able900 asking him.
Good luck with it! It sounds like you might have somewhat of an easier time than a lot of us, since you’re already eating VLC and since you’ll be there to support each other.
