I am assuming Able will say that chicken, fish, and eggs are a better choice. But I do eat turkey, bison, and lamb to change up the meat. Even though it is not on the strict diet. 🙁 I just love variety in my meat. Can’t candida start to survive on anything? Would it be better to change up the meat as long as it lean? Is it how long the meat takes to digest that is the main concern? Just curious.
Thank you for any responses,

Hi Lauren,

The point of meat is not about it being lean but that the animal protein which releases ammonia in our intestines and ammonia favors candida. Plus it adds to toxins you are already trying to get rid of in the first place. Eggs, chicken and fish contain less of the protein so less of the ammonia is produced by eating it.

I was going back to meat few times and honestly I did feel the difference on or off it. Still working it out myself as I get so tired of eggs and sometimes run out of ideas for meals so I go back and forth. If I can’t make myself eat anything else, then little meat is better than nothing IMO. I used to be perfectly fine without meat, but since on this diet I started craving it more than usual. As if I need it. Perhaps I am missing protein as I don’t do well on eggs, who knows…

If you are going to eat meat, wild venison sounds much better than farm raised animal.
