Why can't I have coffe or artificial sweeteners on the Candida diet? If I can't have the A.S. b/c it is believed to cause cancer, I'm over that. I just want to know if it will feed the candida in my body. I feel like the ground has fallen below me b/c I can't eat anything. I'm miserable and it's only been 5 days. I'm only still on it, b/c it's working and allowing me to now funtion somewhat normally. Does anyone have any ideas for quick, good food, that follows the diet?
