I have stuck religiously to the candida diet the past 6 weeks until this evening i turned to chocolate. I had a significant amount and truthfully i don’t know why (i didn’t even relish the taste). I now feel guilty and awful after all the hard work and really i am pretty angry at myself since i have deprived myself fromso many better tasting foods for an evening of relapse.
Truthfully do you think this episode will stall my progress or bring back the candida to some extent?
Thanking you in advance for the feedback.June 5, 2012 at 8:55 pm #84033

Don’t beat yourself up about it. Many of us have probably had this experience. Just pick back up and keep going. You might not have any adverse reactions to this one slip. Whether you do or not, obviously it’s best if you don’t repeat it. I know that it’s hard when you have to give up foods and drinks that you use to love, but you have to desire getting better more than these foods that tempt you.
I don’t know if you journal what you eat, drink or any supplements and treatments that you may do at this point, but it is really helpful if you plan out your meals ahead and you write about how you feel, any symptoms and reactions experienced. Plus, if you experience any brain fog and forgetfulness it helps to keep track. This has been a real motivator to me to keep going, especially when I read back how far I’ve come and how bad it was. I never want to experience it again.

It shouldn’t set you back more than a few hours to a few days from my experience; atleast it wasn’t an alcoholic beverage like wine or beer!
