I have a little delema…I need to do this whole candida thing (have had it for I’d say 20 years not knowing), but at the same time want to do some weight training to put on weight (muscle), as I’m rather skinny and struggle to maintain or put on weight. No where here have I seen YAY or NAY to whey protein (obviously unsweetened), and so would like the experts’ take on this.
First of all, intense weight training is not a good idea while on any Candida diet.
Whey protein is a dairy product rich in lactose which feeds Candida. I wouldn’t want to risk it myself.
