Hey, amigo. You ever read about people who allege using a diet high in fruit to address candida issues?
After Nic posted his question, I did some reading and that prompted me to ask him about diet. Since Nic stated his diet is wide-open, I figured there was no use in me pursuing that route. I mean, if a house is on fire, there's no sense in me trying to rearrange the furniture!
But, it seems like I've read many posts about people cutting-out starches, fruit, refined carbs, added/processed sugar, etc. But, I don't recall that having a 100% success rate. In some cases, some people realized some benefits, until they stopped their restrictive diet. Then, they relapsed.
I've not had a need to look into candida issues for myself, so I'm not well-versed on the topic.
Anyway, I did find a few websites of people who stated that a fruit-heavy diet helped. I've also seen people claim success with diabetes, too, by eating lots of fruit. On the surface, neither *seems* to make sense. But, for some, the results appear to indicate otherwise.
I did the diet thing in baby steps, then did a more committed overhaul 15 months ago. If your young with all the socializing/eating- it would be difficult. I would like to go out more now that I'm better, but , been there done that enough to some extent. I do miss beer, but not the long term effects.
With full blown candida diet alone wont fix it, but helps. People recourse when they start eating everything again. This could be any gut yeast and SIBO combined.
Fruit diet helping candida and glucose (in diabetics)?
** - I would like to read that, as I have had both issues. **
Bananas (my fave to go) is evil on both accounts in my personal experience. I often wonder if there is also a glucose intolerant/candida link too.
There is (was) a athletic couple on you tube who were on a bannana diet. A body can only do this if its 100% healthy, apparently they are. Even fit athletes can get insulin intolerance, and post work out body gets a huge liver sugar dump into the blood into muscle that might not be able to receive then use all this sugar. Its weird.
