Also, I’ve been eating salads with tomato, avocado, and olive oil as the dressing. I’m always hungry so I know that this is going to be agony and I’m not up to lots of cooking. I do not find vegetables very filling. I’m planning spaghetti with quinoa pasta or spaghetti squash in place of the pasta. That’s where I am so far.
But contrary to the “plan” on thecandidadiet.com site I want to launch into the anti-fungals right off.
Try to eat mostly vegetables, specially green, eggs, fish, and chicken. I will leave Oatmeal apart for now. The reason is gluten contamination and the carbohydrate level.
Don’t use any sugar substitute, except Stevia. ( don’t use Xylitol )
Try to get some Buckwheat and Quinoa. You can eat an small cup of one of them a day to see how you progress in that way. The idea is to keep the carbohydrate intake as low as 50/75 g a day. You need to rise your calorie source eating fat. Coconut Oil and Olive Oil are you best friends.
Eat some vegetable snack such as celery frequently to avoid hypoglicemic episodes.
I advice you to be 3 days on this regime before to add any antifungal substance.
You should react to this diet and get an increase in the symptoms or symptom control. Both are candida indicators ( die-off or stopping the yeast metabolic process after food reduction )
It is very important you write down any change on symptoms, new symptoms, reactions, and how you feel under this protocol.
Report to the forum what you feel.
After 3 days, add SF-722 increasing the dosage to 15 capsules a day (5/3 times a day) You can also add Coconut Oil. I suggest you to increase the amount according your tolerance. A good amount may be 10/12 spoon a day.
Bottom line, you must react to this program if yeast is your main problem. This diet is also very effective for SIBO. Undecenoic Acid has antibacterial properties too.
I am prognosticating die-off reaction in your case. Give it time. Sometimes, the die-off don’t show up immediately but after several days when your body is saturated of toxins. There are ways to attenuate the die-off reaction.
Anyway, the response to this will give you proof if yeast is what is affecting you.
If you don’t react positively or negatively to a plan like this, you have to look at other causes. I doubt you won’t react to it according to your symptoms and history.
Discipline and patience are necessary.
Note: This isn’t an integral anticandida protocol but a “test” plan to identify if a fungal overgrowth is causing your issues.
