Last Autumn, I began with the Candida diet but already failed ten days later. In December until mid January I was eating loads of sweets (under the Christmas tree) and strangely I did not have any symptoms. No bloating, no fungus under my armpits as before. Nothing. And I mean, I did really eat a lot of sugery stuff. Now, two weeks on the diet again, my Candida symptoms flare up: Massive bloating, fungus under my arms, itchy skin, itchy anus (sorry, but I have to point it out, haha).
But why? Why would I have visible fungus like under my armpits an further down WHEN on the diet and not when eating tons of sugar?
From my experience you are dealing with die off. The same thing happened to me where I hadn’t been limiting my eating and had no symptoms and then got a two week long yeast infection a month into the candida diet. Everyone I’ve talked to says stick with it. It’s the candida trying to get you to give up on your diet and throwing a temper tantrum because it knows it’s starting to lose the battle.
