What is candida? The Yeast Diet is designed to help you cure Candida. Candida is a yeast infection most commonly associated with the vaginal area. Candida can also appear in other places. It often shows up in the mouth. This is called thrush. It’s difficult to eat when you have thrush because of the pain that is part of the yeast infection. Candida is a fungus that feeds on sugar and carbohydrates. It can be caused by many different things. People with diabetes often have a problem with candida. Antibiotics are really bad at causing yeast infections, as are steroids. However, the main cause of yeast infections is a high-sugar diet.
to avoid foods
Most meats are actually good for Candida, but if the meat is breaded, stay away. Margarine should not be used on the yeast diet. Stick to real butter for the duration of the diet. Don’t eat potatoes for the first few weeks of the yeast diet. Stay away from coffee and tea. You can drink herbal teas as long as it is in moderation. Foods that contain yeast, such as pastries, alcohol, and bread, must be avoided. Don’t eat pickles, soy sauce, or green olives. Peanuts are not good for you if you are fighting candida. Neither does peanut oil. However, it is okay to eat almonds and walnuts. You should not eat anything that contains vinegar. That means no mustard, BBQ sauce, or ketchup. You should also avoid mayonnaise as it also contains vinegar.
food to eat
It is good to eat yeast diet vegetables like cabbage, peppers and broccoli. Okra, celery, green beans, cucumber, lettuce, radish, garlic, onion, and tomato can all be eaten. There are many more vegetables that you can enjoy as well. Eat plenty of vegetables while on the yeast diet.
Many fruits produce sugar and all fruit juices should be avoided because of the sugar they contain. There are several fruits that you can enjoy on the yeast diet. Peaches, plums, kiwis, oranges, persimmons, tangerines and apricots are some of the fruits you can enjoy. Even green apples and grapefruit are good for candida. They contain acid that kills yeast.
Some of the best available meats to help you with Candida are pork, fowl and other fowl, beef, sausage, goat and lamb. Some of the best seafood for the yeast diet include shrimp, wild salmon, catfish and other freshwater fish, squid, cuttlefish, halibut, cod, flounder, snails, and red snapper. Bass and all types of trout are good for candida infections.
It is important to drink plenty of water. Water will flush the toxins out of the body. Drink spring water and some distilled water every day.
You don’t have to stay on the yeast diet forever, either. When you are cured of candida you can return to a normal diet. However, it is recommended to stick to this yeast diet. You will feel better and the candida will not return as long as you are on the yeast diet.
