I went from 170lbs to 120lbs with doing the candida diet. I started with eating only leafy green veg's for 21 days. During that time my mood changed (being morass and really bad temper) and I started to get tongue sores (like 10) this was during the first week. I really wanted to quit during this time but I pushed myself. After the 7th day while brushing my teeth I felt this weird peeling in my mouth. As i reached for it and started pulling this nasty, long, mucus like substance which was about 10-11 inches LONG which was candida. That was a really eye-opening experience and from that point on I stuck through it. I started to working out more and completely gave up refined-carbs. Within 4 months I dropped to 120lbs and am ripped as ever.
