    Hello, I am getting ready to start the Candida Diet. I am confused on what all I can eat I understand that it is gluten free, sugar free, white flour free and I am only allowed green apples and berries once a day and root veggies and starch veggies in moderation and I should focus on organic range free meats and organic veggies. is there a place on this forum where we can share recipes or meal ideas because I am struggling. Thank you!!

    We actually DO have a recipe section!

    And I believe there is also one on The Candida Diet website as well 🙂

    Basically if you follow the list of do’s and dont’s on the website, you will eventually get there.

    Some people have good results going stricter, but my experience is that my candida got worse when I went strict (not enough carbs and calories to meet the needs of my immune system and the candida thrived).

    This is only a struggle until you familiarize yourself with the world of veggies, because honestly, there are only hundreds of ideas for meals to choose from, and none of them have to include pasta,rice,or bread 🙂

    BTW, you *will* get there….Im hesitant to say im cured but I had an excellent week so far, and it included fruit, brownies and sugared-lemonade….so im getting there 😀

    There are different diets available. The most popular is the more strict diet, which most people follow.
    It only includes a strict amount of veggies/meat. See the safe food list. Fruits are not allowed on the strict diet.
    Personally I’d advise against the strict diet for the ones that haven’t tried anything yet. Try to eat as healthy as possible for a few weeks and combine it with antifungals. If the problem solves itself this way, you are better off than doing the strict diet. If it doesn’t, then you have to start the strict diet.

    I recommend a stage 3 diet first, then stage 2, then stage 1 for a long period of time and then back through the stages later in time. Basically stage 3 allows seeds, nuts, and fruit, stage 2 is no fruit (but seeds and nuts) and stage 1 is no seeds, no nuts, and no fruit.

    This is the recipes section:

    The diet by itself likely won’t cure you, the x-factor in most treatments is the supplements they take. Try not to overdo anything at first. Keep in mind that the more antifungals you take the more die-off you’ll get.

    Also, come up with a detox plan before starting if possible…this is essential to do this safely imho.
