    I do better without it, but my body really craves it just before and during a flare.

    we are allergic to sometimes. I know that I crave fattening food when I am
    stressed and I do flare, but whether it's the food or the stress I don't know.

    i reallly crave sweets, you the kind gooey, creamy, smooth, and anything that is real sweet, and chocolate,which i am allergic too. but give me a cream puff and i am in heaven, i have been in a flare for about 3months now. not sure what brought it on. i hate to think it is the sweets. i know my stress level right now is off the map. so not sure if it was food or stress, maybe both. mmm chocolate cake. yumm.

    was what I craved during a flare, I actually convinced myself that a carton of ice cream helped the pain. Wrong!! the sugar made my face break out,and the pain grew more intense. I discovered it was the candida flaring up that made me feel worse.

    I crave anything with salt.

    If Im in a flare and need to cook dinner .Hubby always tells me that I added way to much salt.
