dealing with overeating on a candida diet

There are times during the year when it’s almost expected that people will overdo it on rich, indulgent or sugary foods. If you subscribe to the “80/20” or “90/10” rules (eat well 80% or 90% of the time, then gorge on what the heck you feel like the other 20% or 10% of the time), you’ve probably overeaten your fair share of birthday cake, pumpkin pie, Christmas trifle, or any other foods that you wouldn’t consume on a regular basis.

I myself come from a long line of “overindulgers” even when it wasn’t the holidays. I vividly remember spending one New Year’s Eve sprawled on my parent’s bed (the only place to watch TV in our house), semi-comatose after gorging on eggnog, shortbreads, mixed nuts, fudge, and a few other sundry holiday treats that I can’t quite pinpoint at the moment (oh, that’s right–pinwheel cookies, too).
