There are two schools of thoughts when it comes to candida. One school believes that Candida will thrive if fruits are eaten, and the other school believes fruits do not feed candida. I tend to agree with the school that believes that fruits can not feed candida. Fruits are the best and most efficient way for our bodies to make energy and energy is needed for any healing process. Here's something I wrote previously about fruits:
Most individuals including medical doctors today who attack sugars don’t differentiate between sugars in fruits or sugars in simple carbs. There is a huge difference between the two sugars.
Sugars in fruits do not raise blood Sugar or feed candida. Sugars from fruits and veggies have enzymes attached to them and all the other co-factors needed to produce energy in the body. Energy is produced efficiently from sugars in fruits. Fruits also have fiber in them. Therefore these sugars are absorbed through the hepatic pathway from the small intestine and they end up in the liver to be processed further. The liver will store the sugars and put glucose back into the blood only when needed. The sugars in fruits are perfect to create energy and they NEVER raise blood Sugar levels as long as you eat the fruit whole and raw.
On the other hand, sugars from processed foods like breads (including wheat breads), pasta, white rice, cakes, or any processed carbs will be absorbed through the lymphatic pathway, bypassing the liver, and are led directly to the blood. This kind of Sugar will feed candida. Therefore, tons of glucose are dumped in the blood stream whether the body needs it or not. The body will react by producing insulin in large quantities to handle the glucose in the blood. This is a vicious cycle that can exhaust the adrenal glands and in general stress systems in the body.
