Any idea how long a fast it would take to get rid of candida? I am currently on my 12th day, aiming for 30 of a Water Fast (with herbal teas sweetened with stevia thrown in.) Is this tied in at all with how much excess weight is on your body? Does candida store in stored fat? I am currently about 16 pounds over the maximum for my age and height according to the army weight chart for women.
