Maybe this is an abstract question, but I am actively thinking about it even though I am not there yet, and I wonder if anyone else is giving this thought or has ideas about it, and/or experience.

I keep asking myself “What does it mean to eat normally again?” “What will your diet eventually look like over the long-term (years down the road)?”

Do people who eventually heal on the strict diet, go back to eating ice cream and cheesecake? How does it work?

I don’t foresee myself ever going back to eating desserts or sugar-rich foods, certainly not in the quantities that I was when I was feeding the Candida at its worst. Same is true of breads. However, I’d like to feel okay about someday having the occasional nice bowl of ice cream from hormone-free cows….And maybe once in a while, a piece of dark chocolate with coconut in it. Or, if I’m out at a special event, having a dessert without worry.

Is this something we each define for ourselves while trying to stay aware of the repercussions of each food choice? That’s kinda what I am coming to with all of this. This process is about fighting Candida, but it’s also altering how I perceive food…for…well…the rest of my life. When I was doing more of a body-building routine, I used to see all food as nourishment for my body. I want to keep that in mind, but I don’t want to have to worry that if I am ever at the point down the line where my digestion is back in balance, that one bowl of ice cream will throw it all off….

Thanks again for any thoughts.

Nobody can cure an intestinal fungal overgrowth with an strict diet. You have an infection in the intestines. It is necessary a treatment to eliminate the fungus.

After eliminating it, and repairing the intestines, you can eat what you want.
