BrokenDina's Journal, 26 January 2013

The Candida Diet is a very restrictive diet. It takes perseverance and will-power to stay on track. I got started on it, because my nutritional therapist recommended it for issues I'm having that manifest as other things, but aren't those other things.

For the first month, you can't have: fruit or fruit juices, sugar (no honey, syrup, or anything like that. Please see sugar note below) [with the exception of Xylitol or Stevia, which don't feed the Candida], caffeine, dairy, gluten, yeast- or flour-containing foods, vinegar-containing foods (like mayo, salad dressings, etc) [with the exception of raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar].

After the first month, you can't have everything on the list above, save that you can reintroduce 1 fruit at a time, though pre-made fruit juices are frowned on because of the sugar added.

So you are aware, anything ending in -ose is sugar. Also, cane juice (evaporated, et al) is also sugar. A good substitution is Xylitol, Stevia, or Agave nectar.
Good dairy-free product replacements are coconut milk, or almond milk.

You can get the full food list and diet information at or

A note on the websites: The first is a free do-it-yourself informational guide, with foods to eat, foods to avoid, recipes, etc. The second site is more of a site that you can pay to consult with Bee (the owner of the site) and the foods to eat and avoid and some other information differs from the first site. Choose the site which is right for you. I am going by the first site, as I have a nutritional therapist to get advice from, but for people who can afford it and would like someone professional, Bee is a good person for it.

You can also purchase the book Gut Solutions by Brenda Watson, who recommends the Candida Diet. You can google the name, and find it almost anywhere, as well as some include nutritional supplements to go along with the book and diet.
