I’ve had Candida for four months, and I think most who have experienced it would agree that, considering you do not need to lose any weight at all, you should try to find a naturalist/holistic doctor to see if he can diagnose you as having Candida before you start any diet.
I’ve already lost 33 pounds on this diet, but admittedly, I completely lost my appetite in the beginning, and have only recently recovered it. I have now been stationary at a particular weight for about three weeks, which I consider to be a large success.
I could tell by the foods which I could and could not eat that my problem was Candida, that plus my main symptom, which was the yeast being concentrated on my bottom lip, which is in itself a symptom.
Do you eat sugar? Even sugar substitutes can contain Dextrose, which for me and most of us gives the same reactions as sugar. If you do consume sugar, and have other or a worsening of symptoms afterwards, you could try leaving all sugar products out of your diet and see what if any results you experience.
Many experts claim that Candida is often the result of a poor immune system, and stress can certainly cause a weakened immune symptom.
Below are the most common symptoms of Candida.
abdominal gas and bloating
cravings for alcohol
cravings for sweets
inability to think clearly or concentrate
low sex drive
sensitivity to fragrances and/or other chemicals
localized yeast breakout
Good luck to you, I sincerely hope you can find what your problem is.
