It's ironic that meat isn't that great for someone with candida - I assumed that people following a candida diet would have more meat in their diet (since many other foods are eliminated).
Where would I find kefir? A health food store? I have never heard of it before.
I'm already on my way to eliminating coffee and pop. It's the other foods that I struggle with. I don't know why. Once I started the gf diet, I didn't go back. And I haven't really struggled with that diet. I don't know if the difference is having a doctor tell me I absolutely need to do it (gluten-free diet) for life or if it's something else. It should be the same idea, but I'm finding this transition a bit harder.
I drink plenty of water and exercise. My level of health is much better since my diagnosis, but could still stand improvement. My health tends to come in highs and lows right now. When I'm on a low, it is still not quite as bad as my pre-gf days, but can still leave me very ill. I think candida is likely a response to my misdiagnosed years (malnourishment, etc.) If I had known about candida, my recovery may have been faster.
