I cheated over christmas and had symptoms worse then my original symptoms, it was just a huge backlash.
My reasoning being if you try to starve a wild animal then throw it a piece of meat its likely to take your hand off. It felt like the candida was directly reacting to the lack of sugar suddenly being available and it just lunged at it.
My symptoms went into overdrive, but thinking logically on it afterwards, if your feeding the candida steadily the symptoms are likely to be steady and even. If you feed it suddenly after starving it the backlash is likely to be sudden and extreme.
Also your shocking your body by suddenly changing the status quo, that is why i think my symptoms after cheating were stronger then they were before i started, the body was in a routine even with the candida.
I’m getting gradually better I went back to no test foods just the original list then i reintroduced the test foods every ten days.
