How do you know which is the best anti-candida diet to follow?
It can be overwhelming when you first start your anti-candida regimen. First off, you’re likely feeling fatigued, foggy-brained, and you might be over-run with cravings for carbs, salty foods, or junk food. Not only do you find out that you must eliminate virtually all of the common “comfort” foods like sweets, bread, candies, muffins, coffee, and so on, you also need to introduce a host of new and specialty foods that you may never have heard of before.
Then, when you start reading about the anti-candida diet, you discover that there are a plethora of approches out there, from entirely free of fruit, grains and legumes, to those diets that allow some of each of those foods, to everything in between. More radical approaches might advocate 100% raw fruit, or up to 70% or 80% fat.
How’s a gal (or guy) to know which diet to follow?
While I can’t prescribe a specific ideal diet for each one of you (I mean, we’ve barely met!), in this video, I cover the principles I used to determine my own diet, and how I learned which foods to eliminate and which to continue to consume so that I could get my own candida under control.
These are principles anyone can apply to healing from candida. I hope they are helpful to you!
And if you’ve tried something different or have your own results to report, don’t be shy–please share in the comments.
