No popcorn, peanuts or p.butter
sweeteners such as stevia, sugar free cnady, murry's cookies' Hershey's sugar-free chocolate, sugar-free pudding.
rice cakes, Kavli crackers, Triscuits, corn chips, tortillas, potato chips, corn nuts
herbal teas, no more than 3 caffeine products a day
soy cheese, nut cheese, veggie cheese
all nuts except peanuts
All the *allowed* foods seem like a bunch of junk to me and a lot on this list has me
I'm on day 2 so I'll give it a go and see what happens. But I am going to do a *little* cheese because I just can't do without it.
I think it depends how strict you want to be about it. On the strict end of the spectrum, you eat only protien, low carb veggies, and good fats. This is what I am doing. But I know others have succes incorporating some low carb grains, nuts, and fermented dairy. I actually dont understand how a reeaallly aged cheese could have much lactose, but I guess the concern there is the mold? My *cheat*, which seems to come up about once a week, is a few soaked almonds
I think the candida diet you use depends on your body and its needs for rebalance and detox?
