I am a newbie at this and also to the Candida diet….today is day six for me too! I have been ok so far, no excruciating stomach pains anymore and my skin has cleaned up almost instantly so that is definitely a good thing! However, today has been so hard and I must admit, I just want to give up as it is so hard. The only thing I enjoy is avocado on buckwheat crackers and my morning vege omelet. I have made an ok brown fried rice but see here that people recommend avoiding brown rice? I would hate to think the 6 days of dedication I have already completed has gone to waste because I ate rice?
Does anyone have any ideas of how to curb the sweet cravings? Or do I just ride it out and trust that it gets better? Does it get better?
Aside from being sad and grumpy that I cannot enjoy a piece of chocolate, or anything nice, today I feel like i have been hit by a bus…no energy AT ALL and very down in the dumps. How long have other people experienced the ‘killing off’ side effects for?
