I agree with rlm79. Everybody is different. My approach has been to not take any chances when it comes to food. Since diet is the first line of denfense against this monster, I do not eat any dairy, no fruit and only oatmeal about 1 x a week. My belief, especially after hqving gone thru this before, is that yeast feeds on any Sugar
including and especially that in dairy and fruit. My symptoms were so bad that I could not afford to take any chances that I might make anything worse. So I have been living on organic chicken, organic eggs, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, an ocassional salad of lettuce, cucumber,onion. It sounds like a difficult diet. But when you feel as bad as I have you suddenly don't even care if you even eat at all. During the summer I looked aweful, I was getting very skinny and feeling weak. I ahd to force mysefl to eat. Things are much improved now. I feel steady die off everyday that is tolerable instead of periods where it was intense and scary.
The object for me was to get rid of this once and for all. So I hesitate to eat butter or even yogurt because milk and milk products contain lactose which is a Sugar
that yeast loves and it just is not worth it for me to stay on diet trying to kill it and then feed it a little something by eating yogurt, cheese or butter. I feel for me it just defeats the purpose.
However, others may be able to eat it and not have problems, but I wonder will they ever get rid of it? The only thing one can do is listen closely to the body. Also try not to add too many foods at once. You need to know if you have a rpoblem what the culprit was.
Last night for the first time in a long time I ate some things I had not eaten in a long time. I had regular iceburg lettuce, green pepper, onion, very small amount of shredded carrot ( carrots had been to sugary for me). I cannot tell you , my tastebuds were happy. And oddly this morning I woke up all the white stuff was gone completely from my tongue. Don't know if the onion did some killing off, or maybe my body got some much needed nutrients. Weird.
Whatever is good for the body = bad for candida -- maybe that is what happened, who knows. I know onions have the same antifungal compound as garlic , probably not the same potency though.
