    All I’ve been eating (other than vegetables) in the last 3 months is chicken and buckwheat. I’ve read enough suggestions saying not to eat so much chicken, so I’ve decided to change something.

    What else could I eat other than fish or oat bran? I could eat salmon, but that wouldn’t fill me up. I may eat it at some occasions, though. The oat bran from my country has obviously given me some bad reactions like acid reflux, skin rash and things like that that used to happen on a non-candida diet. I’ll order Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free oat bran someday and see how I react to that one.

    I can’t eat eggs because of my cholesterol levels and so I can’t eat the bread you all seem to suggest here as well.

    And by the way, yes, I have the raster’s food list.

    All I am left with is just buckwheat, chicken and fish. That’s not good news and I wonder if there is something else I could try.

    Fish wouldn’t really fill me up and chicken in excess may cause some problems as discussed before on the forum. I’ll still eat some chicken like every other day or so anyway, though. What else could I eat? Thanks.

    Are veggies not filling you up?

    I dont eat any meat,eggs or buckwheat, but the veggie variety is pretty good, and I can eat something different every day. I figured maybe you couldnt eat veggies for some reason?

    There’s no problem with vegetables, I’ve just never thought of them as a main source of food but rather as just an additive. I’ve never tried eating a lot of them at once so I can’t tell whether they fill me up or not yet. I’ll try and see.

    Try out making smoothies and get a smoothie machine. Try out the pumpkin muffin bread (4 eggs per loaf). Rutabega is a good potato replacement.

    Pumpkin is a test item, though. I’ll see how it goes. I might try it out.

    And do you mean this one? http://www.thecandidadiet.com/forum/yaf_postst600_Pumpkin-Pie-Muffins.aspx

    ahhhh,gotcha.

    Well I promise you, you can make veggies the main meal and feel satisfied 🙂

    Most people’s complaint about veggies are my favorite thing about them-
    they dont sit in your system long! You become very “regular” in due time on a mostly veggie diet.

    When you eat mostly/all veggie ( I was happiest eating mostly fruit) the fiber cleanses the colon wall, this is something that no meat can do.

    Cant hurt to try it 😀

    I’ve been having a tough time with limiting my meat as well. It’s been pretty tough, but I realized that I’m actually saving a TON of money! It costs like half as much to get enough veggies to fill me up. I’ve been making “mashed potatoes” out of cauliflower, which is not only very filling but cheap as heck. I’m actually discovering you can do all KINDS of things with cauliflower…. but I like the suggestion of rutabaga as well!

    I never cared this much about food before. But right now I sound like a foodie.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let you know htat I understand where you’re coming from, but keepyour head up cuz you can def. fillup with the right veggies

    But with all those veggies and no meat do you get enough protein ? I mean if we can’t have beans, pulses etc. then where does the protein come from? We aren’t allowed fish either (mercury..)

    Not sure who this post is addressed to?

    Every food has a profile of carbs/protein/fat.

    Every fruit and vegetable has some amount of protein and fat.

    You could live on romaine lettuce and still get all the fat and protein you could need,PER calorie requirement. What this means is that as long as you eat ANY fruit and vegetable, to the degree that you get your CALORIES met, you get all the protein you need.

    Its a sales-job that meat=protein and veggies=carbs.

    I eat NO animal products of any kind and I have plenty of muscle ( I am 108lbs but only 5’1″)

    You might get a kick out of this article- by a body-building couple.
    They offer a grocery list of the foods they eat to body build…its NOT a candida diet, and yet it is FULL of candida approved foods! No kidding.

    Im not saying follow this grocery list, im saying that people without candida can look like THIS while eating salads and fruits all day.
    Check em out: http://www.veganbodybuilding.com/?page=article_marcella_003

    Im sure during competition time they are filling up on beans or vegan protein like peas.
    But thats a bit different 😉 Like this hotness here:

    ” Simple vegetables like kale, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, collards, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and asparagus are loaded with nutrients and fiber and are low in calories.

    Though a few plant-based high-protein foods such as tempeh, tofu, almonds, nut butters, seitan, and seeds are staples for many vegan athletes, too many of these foods will pack on the pounds, and not the good kind. But when you have some of the above mentioned foods with a huge serving of broccoli or mixed green salad or sautéed kale, you end up feeling satiated without taking in too many calories. By having veggies around to snack on such as celery sticks, sliced radishes, sliced cucumber, or sliced peppers, you can snack often and eat a large amount of these foods and still drop body fat.” -Eddie Bauer,”SHREDDED ON VEGETABLES”

    BTW, after a certain amount of time on The Candida Diet, your allowed to re-introduce some foods. I eat pintos and black beans a few time a week, only because I miss my regular diet of fruit and these offer me lots of carbs.
