    I am on Day 6 of my Candida Diet and I have lost 1.4 pounds without even trying. This is without upping my exercise, without calorie-counting, without a strict cleanse. I was 136.4 at the start of the 7 days and I am now 135.0. I am 5’3, so I was not overweight, according to the BMI chart (105-140lb is considered healthy for 5’3), but I did feel like I had some extra poundage and I so excited how the fat has literally sloughed off through no real effort on my part.

    My Candida diet consists of meats, low-starch vegetables, candida-friendly nuts & seeds, coconut and olive oils, almond milk (homemade and store-bought), powdered stevia, and various friendly spices and seasonings. (Am I missing something?)

    I am choosing to go strict and am not including any grains or dairy (yet). (My positive candida albicans antibodies test coincided with a positive dairy allergy.)

    Directly prior to this diet, I was gluten-free, but consuming a lot of fruit, legumes, peanuts, dairy and other carbs. (My diet was already free of processed foods, caffeine, alcohol, soy, seed oils and refined sugars, so it wasn’t as dramatic a jump as some people who are coming from the Standard American Diet.)

    I haven’t had cravings for higher-carb foods, and if my body looks and feels great on the Candida diet, then I may never go back! (Although I look forward to making goat milk kefir.)

    I will update this post in another week and let you know my progress.
