Posted by Ichee Nee San Chee on February 16, 2003 at 19:30:39:

Below is a Candida Diet that you can go by and I would personally suggest that you "Stop" the grains and if you need fiber in your diet, give psyllium husk powder a try but be "SURE" to wash it down with a full glass of water and only take one teaspoon every other day.

“CANDIDA/LEAKY GUT DIET”

WHAT YOU CAN EAT!

PROTEIN - Tofu, cold water fish like salmon, tuna (only once a week), turkey, chicken breast, lamb, and veal.

DAIRY - Eggs, low fat cottage cheese, yogurt, and Turkish cheese.

GRAINS - Brown rice, millet, buckwheat (if your not allergic).

VEGGIE FIBER - Asparagus, cabbage, broccoli, spinach, kale, lettuce, yams, beets, string beans, peas, carrots (not many), cucumbers, sauerkraut, onions, and garlic. NOTE: Juice your veggies if you can – you’ll take in more nutrition this way!

FRUITS – (Only one fruit per day) Pineapples, apples, pears, peaches, raspberries, blueberries, grapes, and bananas.
NOTE: Fruits should be eaten “ALONE” for breakfast!

NUTS - Almonds, macadamia nuts, cashews, and sesame seeds.

OILS - Extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, organic butter, and sesame oil.

Pasta and Veggie Salads
Salad Dressing – It’s best to use olive oil or low fat salad dressing and instead of pouring it on your salad – just dip your fork in it – this cuts down on the amount that you consume.

NOTES:
To keep from adding more “STRESS” in your life – eat a desert on Wednesdays and Saturdays if you feel that you must!

Eat all Veggies either cooked or steamed!

Chew your food thoroughly before swallowing it!

Eat 4 to 6 small meals per day – rather than 3 large ones!
(Eating only one food item per meal - is much better for digestion)
Be careful with Soy products – most people are allergic to them!

Pick out 10 food items that you like and rotate them on a daily bases!

Do Not Over Eat – it’s very destructive to the digestive tract.

Use honey as a natural sweeteners but very sparingly!

Drink “ONLY” distilled water with mineral drops added or spring water! Drink 8 to 10 glasses per day.

Drink all liquids at room temperature!

Realize that food is “FUEL” for your body – not just for tasteful pleasure!

“HOW TO MAKE A BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE”
Put these items in a blender and mix:
One small banana
Half cup of blueberries
One cup of organic yogurt
Three teaspoons of whey powder
Two teaspoons of Vitality Supergreen powder
One package of knox gelatin
Three teaspoons of designer protein powder
(Add water to fill blender to top)

FOODS AND DRINKS TO AVOID!

NO – Red Meat (the cows are feed grain and antibiotics), NO – Pork.
NO – Tomatoes or Tomato Sauce (to acidic).
NO – Sugar or sugar substitutes (it has no nutrional value except to feed your candida – consider it to be a toxic poison).
NO – Chocolate (like sugar – it’s a toxic poison that’s not fit for Human consumption).
NO – Potatoes (they convert to sugar after digestion).
NO – Breads or White Flour products (they are just fillers - which have no nutritional value and cause constipation).
NO – Wheat or Grains (anyone with a leaky gut is usually highly allergic to grains).
NO – Mushrooms, peppers or melons (they are moldy).
NEVER DRINK – Milk (it causes mucus to form in the intestinal tract and it contains antibiotics).
NO – Coffee (even decaf), tea, soda pop, orange juice or alcohol (these drinks are all to acidic – which is terrible for a person with an inflamed leaky gut).

Thanks so much.

But would it be ok to not have any grains? I do feel better when I go a full day without them, but then I read that I need SOME grains for insulin. I also read somewhere here that grains can feed candida.

Hi, Ichee.

As far as I am concerned, whole grains are perfectly OK with the candida diet.

However, if they bother you, you probably have a hypersensitivity to them due to the aggravation of your LGS from the candida. Listen to your bodymind's messages.

Let us know how you do.

You do not need ANY grains for insulin production. one of the best things you can do for your overall health is eliminate grains from your diet. There is plenty of evidence that eliminating grains provides great health benefits, and many people are allergic/intolerant to even small amounts. Grains are fairly new to the human diet and for 99% of our existance, our ancestors lived on a completely grain free diet. Their genetics/digestive tracts, etc. are OUR same genetics/digestive tracts. Check out info on paleolithic diets, Protein Power, The Paleo Diet, www.mercola.com has good info on eliminating grains, www.beyondveg.com, there are tons more, this is a starting point.

Thank you Pete.

So i wouldnt be depriving my body of any vitamin/minerals by totally restricting all grains? Do you need grains for energy? I will check out those sites you provided,but I must say that I do feel better without grains in my diet. So many of my symptoms have cleared up since restricting carbs/grains to one serving every other day. And I thought all along it was the meat and fat that were my problems. Geeeeeeeeeez!!!

Read these articles and tell me what u think.

http://www.mercola.com/article/Diet/carbohydrates/paleolithic_diet.htm

http://www.mercola.com/article/insulin.htm

http://www.mercola.com/2002/oct/5/dangerous_grains.htm

These are a few to start, theres much more out there but just know that if u dont feel good eating grains don't eat them. Your body is telling you something.

You can live perfectly healthy (much healthier, in fact), living the way our ancestors lived for millions of years, as hunter gatherers. Lean meats, essential fatty acids and green vegetables provide everything our bodies need for energy, health, vitamins/minerals, etc. Of course some suplpements can be useful since our food supply is not what it once was.

I feel better without grains. I totally avoided them while dealing with candida, and continue to eat them very seldom (wheat never).

You do not need them at all to be healthy. Don't worry...your candida program will go better without them!

Labrat

Did you find NO grains very restrictive, as in not a lot of choices in what to eat?

On candida diet, no sugar, no dairy, no fruit, no grains.

Well, sort of. I found feeling horribly sick very restrictive! It's all relative!

At first it did seem restrictive, but you really do get used to it. I do still use 100% rye bread every so often on a weekend for a treat - I like toast with my eggs - but I found that it give me gas, so I don't have it very often. It's been ages since I ate ANYTHING that came in a package. We cook every day and don't eat sandwiches.

There are countless vegetables and meats to eat. Basically I ate a lot of salads and green vegetables with my meat - chicken, beef, lamb, all kinds of fish and shellfish. I avoided fruit for about 6 months and now that I"m better, I eat it. I also do eat brown rice every so often.

I just look at it like this: my body is telling me what it needs. It would be stupid not to listen to it. That means changing the way I eat so I have to do it. Every meal doesn't need to be a big orgasmic taste fest. It does need to nourish you and provide you with the things you need to be well.

In the long run it's worth it. The restrictions fade in importance as you begin to feel better and be free of the addictions that those foods were feeding.

SOrry, I kind of rambled! Hope this helps.
