@Vegan CatLady, I’ll be supplementing with as much as I can to keep carbs and calories up. I would like to check out your experiences page!
One last question: Is there any reason to keep eggs at only two per day? I understand there are general health concerns about eating too many eggs, but for the diet and beating candida will eating more do any harm? A big breakfast would go a long way toward making this diet manageable.
Your advice is much appreciated.
All the candida-diets encourage eggs as a source of protein.
I will never touch an egg after listening to the studies on Nutritionfacts.org.
Also, my research shows that a healthy immune system helps to keep candida in check, and the immune system is less than par if any of the organs are being over-worked…like the liver and kidneys and adrenals.
High protein foods during any healing crisis works negatively against healing because the kidneys have to work harder to remove excess protein, which is any protein more than 10% of your total calories for the day.
This is said to depress your immune system ( no links to this as of this minute, but all my info IS found on the web if googled ).
99% of all candida diets are high protein, high fat diets.
THIS is why,IMO, people are on them FOREVERRRRRRRR. Taxing those organs to dispose of the issues that Atkins-style diets cause.
The whole reason I am journaling my progress is so that people have an option that is NOT years-long, if my habits pan-out.
If they dont pan-out, then those in that direction will have my testimony as a confirmation of their own efforts.
