Most people around here follow a stricter version of the diet, which is known as the forum diet. Quinoa is not allowed on the stricter diet because it’s a grain, and grains feed the candida. Plain and simple. The website diet is a lot less strict, although not ideal if you want to get rid of your candida much quicker. If you want to eat quinoa, then go ahead. Nobody is going to stop you. However, be aware that it may slow the healing process considerably. If you’d like to get a copy of the strict forum diet, then you should contact Able900.
