These are the foods that I do not believe should be on the Candida diet for at least four weeks.
Nuts – Unless they’re organically grown almonds I’m not really in favor of nuts being on the diet for at least a month. Of course, if extra nutrition is needed such as calories and protein, an exception is usually worth slowing down the treatment a little.
Oils – the only oils used should be coconut and olive oil.
Amaranth, Quinoa, and Wild brown rice should be left out of the diet for at least one month.
Teas – Because detoxing the body is important, the only liquids taken for at least one month should be water and fresh lemon juice. Plus, the teas named may contain a mild antifungal, but not enough to make a difference to a Candida albicans infestation, and most teas, unless organically grown, contain mold.
