Your Anti Candida Diet Tips

The anti Candida diet can be confusing and testing.

When most start the diet they are keen to make a positive change to their health but when they look at how little they are allowed to eat they revert to least path of resistance.
But it is not like the allowed foods are even the same for everyone – no. In some versions you are allowed whole grains, tomatoes and cottage cheese right from day one, in other programs you are not allowed any carbohydrates, nightshade fruits or dairy at all – so what gives?
As there is no defined ‘Anti Candida Diet’. The only thing we can do is to remove the foods that the Candida fungus thrives on from our diet.

Some programs take it one step further and remove all foods that we could be sensitive to as well – so a large part of your success on the diet comes down to how far you want to go with it.

Tip 1 – Step one of an anti Candida diet
Step One is boot camp, this is the first two to four weeks of the diet and the hardest. Any foods containing preservatives, carbohydrates, dairy, sugar, mold, starches, gluten and wheat must be removed from our diet.

I know what you’re thinking, what the heck can I eat?. Well the following foods are strictly all you can eat- green leafy vegetables, celery, brussel sprouts, broccoli, peppers, silverbeet, zucchini, cucumber, chicken, fish, nuts, seeds and omega oils.

Tip 2 – Contentious foods on an anti Candida diet

Now here’s where it gets confusing – some plans go on to say that you can also eat cottage cheese, natural yogurt, lean red meat, whole-grains and low sugar fruits like pineapple, papaya, pear, berries and rhubarb.
The only advice that I can give here is to go with what you can do without – I hate lettuce without dressing so i had to put cottage cheese on it to make it palatable!

Tip 3 – Start a food diary
During an anti Candida diet we end up taking so many supplements and introducing so many foods that a food diary is really handy just to keep track of it all.

Tip 4 – Introducing foods
Start with really simple, easily digested foods – whole-grains, low sugar fruit, carrots, peas etc.

Tip 5 – How to handle cravings on an anti Candida diet
Food cravings are caused by many factors – emotional issues, mineral levels, blood sugar levels and hormones just to name a few. Often a sugar craving can be caused by Candida.

The best idea here to distinguish between a need and a want is to wait five minutes before indulging in the food that you want. By holding off for a few minutes you will find that you get distracted with other things.

The anti Candida diet is only the start of the process, to find out what else you need to do to permanently cure Candida go to
