    I am sure there are alot of people here that would like to try this diet. I would but have no idea what is safe to eat. So if I could get you folks to give us some idea of what we can eat it would be very helpfull.

    Lets not mention the things you cant eat, just what you can. Recipes and whole meals would be GREAT!

    Thanks

    There is a book called the yeast connection. It tells you in detail how to do the diet. This is the book my Dr recommended. It is a difficult diet to follw but worth it. You can eventually add food back in one by one and see how you do. The closest mainstream diet I have found is South Beach.

    You cannot have anything with yeast or wheat. No breads, pastas, no sugar or stificial sweetners, nothing with vinegar (Salad dressings, ketchup, wine) and the only fruits to begin with are green apples and pears but only twice per day. Nothing that can mold like cheeses. the only dairy is plain yogurt.

    You can have Stevia as a sweetner and all the veggies and meats you can handle. You can make salad dressings with lemon juice, olive oil and herbs. There are some wheat free sugar free foods out there like wheatfree totillas and Vans wheat free waffles (they saved my life!) There is a rice pasta which I ate minimal amounts of. Mrs Leepers veggie twists.

    you need to take Acidophillus (I use Jarro dophillus) and Garlic. Take one at night and one in the morning.

    Try searching on Candida for more info! Lynn

    I found the information on candida diet a bit overwhelming at first, and that different sources said different things, therefore confusing.

    So I picked something that seemed reasonable to me. Try going to this website: google whole approach candida diet.

    I printed off their 3 stages whole approach candida diet. It lists foods that are permitted, foods that are limitted, and foods to avoid.

    Wishing you the best.

    Here is some of what they offer:

    Embarking on the learning adventure of a new healthy diet is the important first step towards understanding your body's health and nutritional requirements. The Whole Approach.com website is designed to support and inspire you on your journey toward the diet and lifestyle strategy that suits your individual needs.

    Just as each of us has a unique personality, health history, health challenges, and biochemical make up, we also have unique dietary needs. The information found on these diet pages will be invaluable to you both as a starting point as well as an ongoing reference.

    The primary goal of an effective candida diet is to support healing and detoxification through a nutritionally-balanced diet that is low in carbohydrates. The ideal diet for CRC recovery reduces or eliminates hard-to-digest foods that stress the digestive system as well as allergens and toxins that suppress the immune and nervous systems.

    In the following pages (links below), WholeApproach will address some of the more significant diet theories and considerations in order to help you put together a plan that fits your immediate needs while providing the tools to help you tailor your nutrition plan as you recover.

    Lifestyle considerations that will enhance your treatment program:

    Take control of your diet by preparing most of your food yourself.


    Eat nutrient-rich, organic, minimally-processed whole foods.


    Optimize your intake of essential-fatty-acid rich food sources through the use of healing fats and oils.


    Eat a wide variety of foods, preferably by following the four-day rotation diet.


    Drink plenty of purified water. Drink half your body weight in ounces (for example if you weigh 140 lbs, you should drink at least 70 ounces of water). Whether you have city water or well water, consider investing in a water purification system (i.e. reverse osmosis) or buy high quality purified water that is stored in non-porous plastic or glass.


    Drug use, alcohol consumption and smoking lower your immunity - so avoid them.


    Exercise regularly, allow adequate time for sleep. Develop effective stress management and relaxation skills to help combat both physical and emotional stress.


    Avoid unnecessary use of antibiotics, steroid drugs and birth control pills when possible since they promote the overgrowth of candida.

    The WholeApproach Candida Diet provides nutritional support to increase the effectiveness of the WholeApproach Program of natural anti-fungal products. Please click on the following links for more information:
