Like the other poster said, you really shouldn’t be ingesting xyiltol as your body can react to it just as it does sugar. The only sugar sub that most Candida sufferers can tolerate is Truvia, most grocery stores carry this in our area, don’t know about the UK, but you can order it online as well.
As far as butter goes, there’s a product by the name of ghee which is pure butter fat – with all the milk solids removed. You use it just as you would butter, only you need less to obtain the same results. You can find it on the Internet if not in a local health food store.
You’re right about the amount of sugar in processed products; you will need to prepare your food yourself. Coconut flour isn’t that expensive on Amazon, and a little goes a long way. Check out the websites that post coconut flour recipes, there are dozens of these and some great recipes. I’ve eaten baked goods using coconut flour for almost ten years, simply for a healthy diet and to avoid wheat products which are known to cause allergies and obesity.
You can get through this, just try to eat as much as you can and still remain on the diet. Eggs aren’t that expensive, so eat lots of eggs prepared every way you can imagine. Keep boiled eggs all the time and grab one if you’re at a loss for something to eat and are feeling empty. If you can find it purchase mustard made with apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar and make deviled eggs or egg salad with it.
Otherwise, try sticking with chicken and fish as much as possible, and avoid beef and pork if you can. Sardines are fairly cheap in a lot of countries, so eat a lot of these for protein. They’re young fish and haven’t had a chance for their bodies to obtain much mercury yet.
Are you taking a good probiotic?
