I think we fall in love with the texture, color, mouth feel of all the things that for some reason our body has told us-in no uncertain terms- ‘look this is not good for you’, so throw the girl scout cookies away, and create something that has perhaps
a similar texture but without the sugar. All of this sugar stuff is such a part of our western culture, and eliminating the warm fuzzy response to these kinds of ‘treats’ has to become one’s personal inner dialogue. A serious sugar afficionada, I am learning to parent my urges, with positive replacements.
What will work for you of course, is a nibble and taste of the’ good for you’ foods, until you happen to find something that really tastes great and is also good for you. I think we newbies have a learning curve ahead, and yes this diet is quite strict-but everyone who sticks with the candida food plan ( I like that term better than ‘diet’) continues to report how well they feel, the longer they do it.
