If you’re still worried about a high-fat diet, you might find the following two blogs informative.
This one’s my favourite at the moment.

But there are reports available in journals and university-released papers, etc.
For the most part I base this on my own as well as the experience of some of the others here on the forum. I had the treatment pretty much figured out at one point, and was taking higher counts of probiotics, but I was still experiencing mild Candida symptoms daily until I connected the ammonia and Candida link. Once I stopped trying to fit beef and pork into my diet, I had no problem finishing the cure.
I won’t claim that the infestation is impossible to cure as long as ammonia is being released into the stomach and intestines, but I am absolutely certain that it’s easier and much, much quicker without this being present.
I see. Listening to your body is the best thing you can do really. I don’t eat much meat myself, but some days I wonder if I’m getting enough protein. That’s why I was wondering how much ammonia it would take to cause pH changes. A H. pylori overgrowth must be quite problematic for candida sufferers too, since it releases ammonia to neutralise stomach acid.
