Thank you for your responce, I will research about meat producing ammonia. I’m not trying to upset or debate anyone. I just want to find out why so many think meat is bad for those with Candida. If anyone has some specific links, I would appreciate being able to look them up.
I seem to have a different experience with meat than some others by having an easier time digesting meat for some reason. My diet before I went on the Candida diet was the extreme opposite: low protein, low fat, mostly vegetarian, high carbohydrates and of course “deadly” sugar products. My digestion got better when I started eating more meat, healthy fats, and non-starchy vegetables. Especially cutting out the gluten, sugar and most dairy products helped as well. The only fruit I included in my diet was lemon or limes for flavoring. I did find that occasionally eating black walnuts if you soak them beforehand where beneficial as a anti-parasitic food along with eating pumpkin seeds. I don’t eat beans or legumes at all.
As far as being symptom free not meaning that I still probably have candida overgrowth, that’s always a possibility. But, I am feeling 100% better than I did four months ago and have come a long way. My story is posted under “Lifelong health issues”. I personally believe that most people, including myself, will probably always have to be very cautious in their diets, medications, and supplements for the rest of their lives so that the Candida doesn’t overgrow and cause problems in the future.
