Here are my answers to your questions:
1) I wouldn’t worry about the tomatoes or peppers; they contain approximately 10g of sugar total between the two. The main thing that is wrong with them is the high sugar content; as long as you eat them sparingly or don’t overindulge in them, then they are OK. Eating any food item one time isn’t the end of the world unless it is alcohol.
2) Check out the protocol post about the bitters: http://www.thecandidadiet.com/forum/yaf_postst1334_From-Able-and-Raster-The-Protocol.aspx
I don’t take the bitters myself so don’t know when to start them.
3) How long have you been drinking coffee (in your life)? How much coffee do you drink in a normal day?
If you are having major caffeine withdrawals, I would consider switching to green tea for a few weeks until the withdrawals subside. Green tea has less caffeine and more health benefits. I personally drink one coffee per week and it helps my digestion, but I find it too strong now. Once you quit and go back again…it’ll never be the same. Consider the coffee use to be part of the reason why you are here in the first place…
Chicory coffee is an alternative to regular coffee but am unsure the reason why this is. I believe it contains no caffeine, good flavor, and has more health benefits.
4) I would consider starting the full anti-candida diet once the cleanse is over. It sounds like you are ready, so go for it! I found buckwheat to be my new best friend…
I would start a probiotic in a few weeks per the protocol.
