And if so, what are the ramifications? Do you get ill? Do your candida symptoms return? I am so tired of this diet, I just want to eat a slice of pizza. Or ten. I can do without the processed foods and sugar, candy etc. But I really would like a juicy cheeseburger or glass of wine once in a while! It's been four months, I still test that I have it. I have been pretty faithful to the diet, but I do eat some whole grains occasionally and some milk on my oatmeal without problems. How long does this take? FFC says six months to a year. Does anyone ever really get rid of it? Thanks!!!!!
