If you want some serious inspiration, read Jordan Rubin’s story. He wrote a few books, including The Maker’s Diet (which can be used to treat candida). He had severe candida, Crohn’s disease and about 16 other massively debilitating ailments. At 6’1, he went from 180 pounds to 104 and has pictures to prove it. He was in a wheel chair and literally at death’s door having tried a zillion treatments, diets, supplements, medications, both conventional and holistic approaches, when he finally discovered the way we should all be eating. That, combined with HSO probiotics helped him regain his health and weight. The weight started coming back on almost right away. I found that interesting since for many a diet for candida helps us happily LOSE unwanted weight. Yet he gained.
I do think getting plenty of good fats and proteins in your diet is probably key.
