is it all starch or just potatos?  beans?  grains?  can these things be combined with eggs or dairy, just not meat?

perhaps you are low in potassium Laura.......or magnesium.....
check that out first......might be the reason for the banana craving.

I was wondering that as well Lola, especially since I have been having lots of diarrhea lately, what other foods are high in these minerals- celery I know, another thing I've been craving

With your digestive system problems are you really absorbing enough nutrients, particularly in the small amounts typically found in foods, to help you recover?

no probably not but I can't handle large amounts of supplements, I just try to make everything as easily digestable as possible

Laura P-lkpetrolino: so far I have had no probs with any starches except for potatoes.
I have noticed that this diet I have suggested is the same as the eat right for your type diet. Dr D took alkalinity into consideration. I just wasn't following the program right. I haven't got time tonight to add more info so i will add what i ate today.

Report on how I’m doing. I have had no indigestion now for 5 days, not bad since I have suffered every day since I will 16, tomorrow I am 34. 18 years of suffering. Today my head has been 80% clear, maybe 90%. I haven't had the ping pong balls going on in my head; a little bit of blurred vision, doesn't last for long and a little lost of concentration now and then. But over all with all the symptoms I was having I believe I'm 95% better. My skin has all cleared up just a little dry. I am totally totalllllly amazed. Here is what I ate today.

Breakfast:
Quinoa with maple syrup, soymilk, mango, grapes, apple. (A big bowl I was hungry)

Snack: Apple

Lunch: Mashed sweet potatoes, Steamed broccoli in a bowl with a cooked topping of onion, capsicum, spinach, garlic, ginger, olive oil and sea salt.

Snack: Apple

Dinner: Beef cut thinly, Salad (Cos lettuce, capsicum, onion, tomatoes, spinach, cooked broccoli, garlic, sea salt, olive oil, lemon juice). All tossed together.

Haven’t had a snack tonight, I haven’t been hungry. Tomorrow I am going to try a bit of meat extra with lunch; I will see how I go with that.

I must admit trying to have 5 pieces of fruit and 3 cups of vegetables is hard; (That’s what my plan was) I got 3 ½ fruit and 2 cups of vegetables in. Even though I am big, it is still hard. I’m not missing sweets at all, which is a good thing. I am finding that vegetables are pretty sweet; when you are loaded up with sugar as I was you don’t taste it as being sweet. I have had all my supplements and 2 ½ litres of water. I forgot to weigh myself today, have to remember tomorrow.

I have no problem with veggies I eat those with a vengence, it is a bit confusing because when I look up the acid/alkaline charts on the internet they all say slightly different things

it is really helpful to me you posting your menus, I will do the same once I figure out exactly what i'm going to do

Tracy, I find it hard to believe that you felt good on so little protein in your diet. You didn't have any animal protein until dinner. There is no way I could survive on that.

Quoted from Tracy T
I have noticed that this diet I have suggested is the same as the eat right for your type diet. Dr D took alkalinity into consideration. I just wasn't following the program right.


I had been following what you had been writing and the fact that the BTD already recommended the correct diet was my conclusion from the start. It made me wonder how you were eating prior to this. Good luck with the new changes in your diet. It certainly sounds like you are seeing great improvements. You might find that you will do even better with more protein, some at both breakfast and lunch.

Tracy thank you for all of the helpful information.

As an A+ I can't eat everything that you eat but I get the general idea follow my BTD.  

I had given up and started eating what my body craved (a bag of Snyder's Potato chips for breakfast). But my head is hurting now salt, and not allowed to have potatos.  

thanks for your question sam and your comments kyosha it makes me feel not so alone.

What did I eat today?  I ate my words.  I'd told friends that I was candida free now and was managing to eat small amounts of fruit again.  But I was wrong.   It's flared up again.

Yes, I know that feeling.  But it means that the balance IS tipping in your favor, and it will probably take much less long to get back to where you want to be.  I went through that last week, am not completely back, but getting there.  I ate some spelt muffins and gluten free cookies (not a lot, just 2 of each and not at one time), but with the fruit and starchy vegetables I had added, it was too much.  More as it happens...

Quoted from CarolineC
Ohhh, I am confused. Do you want to know what we have eaten today? OH finally another constipation person!!! Iam so sorry for you BUT so happy I am NOT alone! I thinkI have become known as the  "Rabbit pellet" queen!.
John M. on the other  Candida site (I think), yes it long but  WOW so much info....but anywoo.. he has a recipe  for a goo....yep its a goo for the constipation.
OK, you take 2 TBS of  Ground flaxseed  put it in a glas of warm water, let it sit all night, in the morning you drink this disgusting  stuff ( boy, make this sound awful..but..) and bingo.. you go. Now I understand why..everything inside runs for its constipated life!!  Sorry John, it  hard going down.

Ok.. today I had.

Morning: warm water with some lemon, finished up some  fish and greens (with Candida , you not suppose to eat things left in frig over 24 hours), and ALL my morning supplements

Mid morning: few almonds (have another sore on tongue , so not happy eating probably too much lemon)

Lunch: BIG salad with lettuce, snap peas, celery, little garlic, grilled beef, 2 tbs fresh ground flax seeds and 2 tbs  flax seed oil and tiny bit lemon as dressing. Lunch supplements

dinner hasn't happened: but it will be a vegetable soup. Will take the nighttime  stuff for the candida after dinner.

If I am craving or hungry later, I will have some organic almond butter (trying to continue losing  weight from this candida diet)

Caroline








Just read that you have lost 150 lbs.  You are AMAZING.  You have lost more than my entire body weight.  Good for you!!!

Hey Elizabeth, so do you find that as you get better you can cheat a little bit occasionally?  I think my problem was that I cheated too much in a short period of time.  It's a sad state of affairs when eating fruit or spelt muffins is cheating though, huh?

Yes, I think in the end you can get back to a "normal" (BTD) diet, fruit and all, but that too much "cheating" in a short time does set one back.  The goal is to give the good-guy flora a chance to win down there, and too many carbs, even good ones, gives the bad guys literally a free lunch.  At least we are learning to APPRECIATE those fruits and vegetables!  Two sunny days in a row here, and I am counting all my blessings.   Good luck to all who are working on this together!

i found another tip on fighting candida today.havent tried it yet but i will do when i get hold of some.however it appears to only be a remedy for women.sorry boys.
well you get one unpeeled clove of garlic & place it up your   unmentionable & leave it up there overnight.if the candida is severe you can use a cut in half clove of garlic. if the candida is intermediate then use anunpeeled clove of garlic with a few slits in.Do not use garlic in a healthy   ahem! as it will burn.
hope this helps someone.

Someone also suggested an old-fashioned remedy of boric acid capsules (one would get from a physician open to older ideas) for same location problem.  Not good for gut candida problems, however.

debs,
does that work for candida as well as a yeast infection?

I thought the tip about the garlic was mainly for yeast infection......

my candida is systemic.  I don't think that putting a clove of garlic inside my genitalia is gonna help me.  But you never know, I guess.  Also the unpeeled garlic has hard, sharp edges.  Sounds painful!

yes it will help kill yeast.Even if its systemic it must help to kill it from 'every direction' after all any thing you take ie ingest the candida get used to so you have to change it regularly so attack the critters from all angles.personally i wouldnt have thought the garlic any more uncomfortable than a tampon.anyway just give it a try & let us know how you get on.

Well, I will chime in here and say that I have tried this, for three nights in a row. I sewed a thread through the clove, put many shallow slits in it and no problem... until day three when the string pulled out but not the clove.   Ahem.   After three hours of bearing down and trying not to panic, it came out. Lesson learned, don't insert very far at all!! And perhaps the smaller the clove, the easier it would be to remove. It did help the rampant infection and while I definitely am still dealing with Candida, at least it doesn't burn to pee!!!   I will muster my courage and do this periodically since I have noted the flare ups are related to my hormonal changes.

Does anyone know if a Garlic oil capsule type pill would work?  That would dissolve and open.  I have some good quality garlic oil and pills that I could try.  I get yeast infections and have used Boiron's Yeastaway.  They seem to do the trick but I'm thinking of taking some Garlic pills as well in case it's not just vaginal.  

Sometimes I swear I get my yeast infections from my husband who is far from BT compliant.  I can be fine one minute and then "poof-not fine" the next.  This has only been brought up once before then dropped but I've often wondered how his eating avoids affects me.

I've tried Xylitol & it has a great taste but I probably used too much (a teaspoon at a time) & it's thrown me into a healing crisis - congested & inflamed sinuses, sore throat, etc. I've stopped taking it for now but once I start feeling better I'd like to use it again, albeit in very small quantities.  While looking online for a gum made with it I discovered that the Xylitol I bought from Whole Foods is made from corn, not birch trees as I had thought. This is not mentioned anywhere on the cannister. (Xyli Pure Xylitol by Jarrow Formulas) Would this make it an avoid for O's & thus be contributing to my dramatic reaction?
