Let's be honest. If we could all go back to any diet we chose, we would eat WHATEVER we want. I grew up on sugary foods and pizza...in moderation, but there was never a factor of it contributing to candida. I didn't even get candida till i took Antibiotics in large doses for Acne when i was 20( I didn't even have bad acne, it was just a stupid ass dermatologist!). up until that i was 95% healthy, and would eat anything without worry as most "normal" people do. I'm not saying eating junk is good for you, but it's not to blame for the start of candida, really. and people who say they would gladly eat food that adheres to the candida diet for life are just lying to themselves. Candida comes first, then the craving for sugary foods. You get candida from an overgrowth as we all know, and i'm willing to bet anyone here who has a noticeable problem with candida is because of Antibiotics , birth control or some other immune suppressants.
we should all be able to walk into a grocery store and eat food we like without anxiety of consequence, within reason of course. anything less than that, i think, is letting candida run your life. we can't life like that
