To be honest, I am not 100% sure of either of the diets but let me tell you what worked for me. Also, keep in mind that I had one of the most potent and resistant strains of yeast ever treated by doctors (this is what they tell me anyway)

Eating a whole-foods diet as suggested in Beth's book is the best way for obvious reasons. It is very difficult for yeast of any kind of survive when sugar is absent. (They can and will adapt to life with no sugar if antifungals are not used so do use them with the diet.)

Eatinga basic hunter/gatherer diet is valid nutritionally and will serve well as a candida diet. Eat freely of organic meats, eggs, fish, non-starchy vegetables. Eat raw nuts, seeds moderately. Use butter, olive oil, flax oil often. Eat lightly of legumes, whole grains, but do use them occasionally. Soak beans overnight and slow-cook whole grains to enhance digestibility. You can eat 1 serving a day of Granny smith apple, or Berries of any kind. No other fruits should be eaten in the begining. After a few months on this diet and antifungal program, you can add 1 serving of melon, cherries. Avoid all refined foods. Avoid fermented foods including dairy, soy and vinegar.

When candida is gone, you may want to consider not only the work of Beth and her book, but also Dr. Weston Price (www.westonaprice.org) and look at the diet page of Dr. Mercola. Just search google.com for his name and click on any website that is run by him. You will find a page called "Nutritional Help". It is a monster of a program. All for free that you can read on-line.

I know that Crook's diet is almost a pure caveman diet in the begining phases. He adds food by the phase. I don't agree with his diet recomendations in general (as do most) and it is generally not needed if one is using anti-fungals at the same time.

I am not sure if Beth has a section on candida in her book. If so, I'm sure you will find the diet similar to the one I have mentioned. If not, let me know. I hope this helps you

Hi, Kim.

All I can give you is my 20 years of clinical practice exzperience. Bill's (Dr Crook) diet took MY patients about 2 years to get the same results that Beth's book got in 3 months.

That is what I figured might happen. It isn't that the program is bad or doesn't make sense but he unnecessarily puts foods into different "phases" that cannot be eaten for certain amounts of time. Some of these foods have never been shown to feed candida in a way he suggests. Also, I don't believe he incorporates and anti-fungal program into his regimen. This alone will keep a candida infection brewing for a long time. I imagine it WOULD take over 2 years to eliminate candida with diet alone. I for one need to get Beth's book just to learn as much as I can. Thanks Dr. Stoll
