    Hello,

    New here.

    – 14 years with Ulcerative Colits.
    – Had my large intestine taken out in 2005.
    – Been feeling AMAZING and 100% for last 5 years (eat whatever I want whenever)
    – 3 weeks ago started with bad taste in the mouth, now oral candida
    – Old UC stomach symptoms are back

    Could be that my j pouch is infected (Pouchitis) I guess the Candida and Uc might all be related. Can only talk to my secialist in Jan, so really bummed out because I feel I might need the proper meds to get better.

    About a week into testing the Candida diet. Feel dizzy all day, totally dehydrated, no energy, starved. Doing my best to kill off the bacteria by following diet on this site, but wondering about a few things:

    1 – I’ve read conflicting things. BEEF is on the list, so a few days ago I bought a few pieces of filet migon. Is this ok or not? (if not why is beef on the ok list?)

    2 – I’ve read everywhere that BUTTER is no good, but ORGANIC BUTTER is on the list of things that are ok. (what’s the difference?) Is it under the list for OILS … are they talking about something different then the slab of organic butter I bought (maybe like a organic butter oil or something?). I can put this butter on everything I eat?

    3 – I drink alot of sparkling water, I found one with less sodium than Perrier called
    S. Pellegrino:

    Bicarbonates: 170 PPM
    Calcium Ion: 180 PPM
    Fluoride: 0.64 PPM
    Magnesium: 47 PPM
    Potassium: 3.0 PPM
    Sulfates: 530 PPM
    Sodium: 32 PPM
    Total Dissolved Solids: 950 Mg/l *(except TDS which are parts per million)
    Other Principal Components: Nitrate 0.59, Chloride 61 PPM

    Is this ok to drink?

    4 – I’ve heard conflicting things about eggs – what’s the bottom line. Just the eggs whites, or can full egg be eaten?

    5 – BREADS – what kind if any can I get?

    I will no doubt have more questions as I wiggle my way around this new situation of mine, any replies and help are much appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Martin

    Reply: Beef is not alright on the diet as it releases alcohol gases into your body when the proteins break down. Alcohol and alcohol gases contribute to a beneficial environment for the Candida. To answer your question, beef is on this site’s “ok list” because, other than the forum, the site is very much out of date. Read this post: The Site’s Suggestions: http://www.thecandidadiet.com/forum/yaf_postst968_THE-SITES-SUGGESTIONS.aspx
    Also, if the beef isn’t purely organic it contains antibiotics and hormones, not at all beneficial to the Candida treatment.

    2 – I’ve read everywhere that BUTTER is no good, but ORGANIC BUTTER is on the list of things that are ok. (what’s the difference?) Is it under the list for OILS … are they talking about something different then the slab of organic butter I bought (maybe like a organic butter oil or something?).

    Reply: The only type of ‘butter’ that is acceptable is ghee, which you can find on the Internet. All dairy products should be completely avoided as they can feed the Candida.

    3 – I drink alot of sparkling water, I found one with less sodium than Perrier called S. Pellegrino: Is this ok to drink?

    Reply: Sparkling water is generally a carbonated drink. Carbon dioxide gas is used to make all carbonated waters, therefore club soda, soda water, sparkling water, or seltzer water are all types of water into which carbon dioxide gas has been dissolved, and carbon dioxide is a type of toxin as well as a waste product. This means more work for the liver which is already overworked because of the Candida toxins. What’s wrong with plain water? You stated that you had been “totally dehydrated;” this is typical with a Candida albicans infestation if enough water isn’t consumed. And please understand that I’m talking about “water” and not a drink containing such chemicals as chlorine which will kill the beneficial bacteria in your sytem which are needed to destroy the Candida. It also contains nitrates which destroys vitamins A, C and E in your system.
    You need to be drinking more water than you’ve ever drank before in order to prevent dehydration and to keep the Candida toxins washed from your system

    4 – I’ve heard conflicting things about eggs – what’s the bottom line. Just the eggs whites, or can full egg be eaten?
    Reply: The entire egg should be eaten for the extra proteins. Organic is best if you can get them as they contain no antibiotics or hormones.

    5 – BREADS – what kind if any can I get?

    One of the worst things about getting on the internet after learning about my problem was all the conflicting info about it all. Now I’m even more confused. Who to believe, what to follow … not happy about any of this.

    Who else has experience with beef and organic butter being on the list but turning out to be a problem for them?

    – What’s wrong with plain water?

    I’ll be sticking with water & lemon 🙂

    Great.

    Thanks,

    One doesn’t need to ‘experience’ a problem with a product in order to study the research published on the tangibility of the product, therefore being aware of each fact concerning the results of the break-down of each ingredient in the product.
    The forum’s purpose is to ask questions and inform readers of problems ‘before’ they’re made, not to personally test every product which is a scientifically proven problem.

    “I have 3 bakeries around me, any that I can buy at all?”

    I have no way of knowing since I have no idea of what the ingredients are.

    Martin, I did not eat and still don’t eat any bakery baked foods including breads. They have yeast in them and that is definitely something to avoid when on Candida diet.
    I know it is a lot of work to cook everything yourself but it is quite easy to bake yeast free bread from whole grains. Since no white or refined flours are allowed either.
    Here is a recipe for a nice bread called Cauliflower biscuit with all allowed ingredients:
