I never had any problems consuming certain foods before starting this diet. That’s what I meant by “no going back”. I actually feel sicker now then I did last May when I started the diet, and now I have real food sensitivities something I never had before.
This happens to a lot of members eventually, it certainly happened to me the first time I thought I had cured the infestation and started eating peanut butter and apples. When the infestation was able to reestablish itself completely, the symptoms were at last twice as bad as the first time. This is proof that the infestation is still a large population of Candida. Once you actually clear your body of the overgrowth, this will no longer happen.
What takes place is, when you stop feeding the Candida, and then start feeding them again, the next generation of Candida is going to be more durable and viral than the last generation; therefore your Candida-related symptoms are going to be worse. This is simply an example of evolution at work; in essence, you’re helping the Candida to evolve with the breaks in the diet.
