I started a Candida diet right after Thanksgiving. I'm not sure if I did this diet correctly, I just gave up on sugars, flour, and ate mostly meats and vegetables. I knew this kind of eating would not last throughout the Holidays, and it didn't. However, I did lose about 4 pounds (probably mostly water) from November 28th through about the 14th of December. That was the only noticable different with this diet. I know I was probably experienceing die off or something because I did NOT FEEL WELL AT ALL. Unfortunately, I resumed normal eating because of Holiday pressure and have gained back the weight and more. The pain, bloating, all over body pain is even more horrible than ever, I guess that's what I get for starting this and allowing some yeast die off, then eating normally again, which I know was wrong. Anyhow, I will start the diet again but this time I want to take some supplements. From all the research I have gathered so far from this great board and the internet, the protocal seems to go like this. 1.) Garlic supplement at least 500 milligrams 3 times a day. 2.) Acidophillus (Spelling?) Probiotic pearls. 3.) Grapefruit seed extract? Not sure of the dose. Does this seem about right? Also, I love to take Activia Yogurt, the new stuff they have out now to help with digestive problems. I was getting constipated from the Candida diet, and this yogurt is the only thing has has helped me in the past, but it does have sugar in it. Would that still be okay to take with the Candida diet. Sorry, so long. As you guys can tell, I don't have any plans for New Years, I'm just visiting this wonderful board. Thank you. Hugs, Chelz.
