Candida/low Sugar Diet

6 posts in this topic

For those who have done or are doing the candida diet, did you have any digestive problems at first? I have very bad diarrhea and nausea since I cut out sugars and carbs--is this normal? Is this the candida beginning to die out?

I feel awful and feel like giving up, so does anyone have any experience with this? I'd love to hear it!

I was on this diet before going gluten free. I did not feel better and lost huge amounts of weight (which was not good since I was not overweight to begin with. But, I was also not gluten free yet either.

I went on the diet a few months after going gluten-free. I lost way too much weight and had to stop it. I also felt crappy but I started the diet at the same time as I was taking 2 antibiotics so who knows what caused that. I eventually went with Threelac and it got rid of my candida problem. I didn't eat candy or sugar during that time but I did eat rice and fruit and still did very well.

I don't think the diet is reasonable, or helpful.

Thanks for the replies. I had to eat some carbs yesterday (but just had some corn) because I was feeling awful. I've also lost 5 pounds after only doing this for a week, and I don't need to be losing any weight. I've done some research on the Threelac, and I think I may buy that--it seems to have helped a lot of people.

Thanks again!

also make sure that it's the candida that's really your problem. some naturopaths are really stuck on yeast when there other factors at work. i was told i had candida and so stuck with the diet way to long, when it was really my thyroid. cutting out sugar will never hurt you, but you really want to make sure that's really your problem, because the diet is so ridicolous. how have you determined you have yeast? and it's hard not to lose weight when you eat that way.

I did the anti-candida diet before going gluten-free and lost a lot of unwanted weight but I did have a problem getting enough carbs in. If I had do it again I would add probiotic kefir slowly. I am sure I'd get good results. Don't give up on the diet yet. Go slowly and be patient. It takes time. B) Also eat lots of papaya. It'll help the gut heal quicker and it is gentle and nutricious. That was the advice my homeopath gave me and it worked quite well.

    • Thankyou ch88 you are so very kind, im so glad there are forums like this, so helpful.  Only signed up the other day and everyone is great.
    • My GI told me that everything looked great visually (endoscopy), but my biopsies revealed moderate to severe intestinal damage.  ☹️  You just have to wait for the pathologist's report.  
    • I ate there July 23 2017, had cheeseburger with gluten free bun (charged extra 2 dollars) which tasted very good. dressed burger with tomato, pickles and onion and even mayo with no unpleasant affects.  I appreciated the choice of gluten-free bun.  Also, the young man serving us asked if I wanted my French fries on the same plate as my burger, I guess their fries are not fried in a dedicated fryer.  Nice of him to give me a heads up though.  I am NCGS not proved as celiac disease.
    • I think you will find that aromatherapy is safe.  I have had the same thing when having facials many, many times over 12 years gluten free and have never, ever had a problem. I have never found any aromatherapy that contained gluten. I am a very sensitive, diagnosed Celiac.  As far as lotion is concerned, you won't have a problem if you wash your hands, which I cannot imagine NOT doing before eating.  That is Celiac 101.  You only have to screen hand lotions for personal use and anything that goes onto the lips.  Eye drops also should be gluten-free as you put that directly into the eye and it can make it's way down into your gut. Hair salons........no, never had a problem.  If a salon uses good products, they will not contain gluten. Again, in 12 years of checking anything new they use, never found any gluten component.  I color and trim my hair once a month and I'm pretty sure I'd be dead by now if I ingested gluten for so often for 12 years.  You really do not want to ingest anything that is sprayed and I can't say that I have.  It's a bad idea for many other reasons besides gluten. I know you are newly diagnosed and yes, you need to check ingredients BUT gluten is not everywhere. If you check whatever they are using and it does not contain the dreaded gluten, then do not worry about it.
    • There is a lot of information on site about living with Celiac disease. A good idea is to take a look at the "coping with" section and the "newbie info 101" thread. There is a lot of good information about cross contamination and proper nutrition.
