Hello, this might be a silly question, but I began the Yeast/Fungal protocal today.  Dr. D'Adamo recommends taking 1-2 capsules of the some of these supplements twice a day.  My question is how do you determine if you should take one or two?  Does it matter?

try a week with one and up if necessary or stay with that amount.

Start with lower dsoage, then if everything is fine, you can opt to increase.

When utilzing a protocol, I believe I usually use one capsule if two capsules are suggested.  

I would think that one's weight, body size, age, health profile would all contribute to this decision.

I'm not eating any fruit, but I still do eat sweet potatoes (in moderation), carrots, parsnips, and rarely rice.  I'm really working on getting my candida under control.  Are the starchy veggies that I've listed not good to eat while on a candida cleanse?  I figure I do need some carbs.

Regarding supplements: I second the opinion to start with the smaller recommended amounts and go from there.

As far as starchy vegetables go, experimentation is key. To see if a vegetable is giving you trouble, take it out of your diet for a week, then add it back in and see what happens. I found out that sweet potatoes can cause problems for me along the same lines as rice or other grains, so I limit my intake. Same with other root vegetables. I do better with greens like kale and collards, broccoli, summer and winter squash and pumpkin, and onions and garlic.

Experiment and see what works for you and what doesn't. We're all different, and one of the best features of the BTD is the way it sees us as individuals within the larger group of blood type. :)

You will get different opinions from different folks, depending on their own body's experiences.

I personally continue to eat starchy vegetables, focusing on the beneficial ones.  Same with fruits;  I eat the beneficial berries and pineapple.  Grains, on the other hand . . . .

Well, I have one toasted rice cake every day.  (beneficial for me)  :-)
