Does the presence and overgrowth of yeast and fungi in your body influence the types of food that you a) will be drawn to want to eat, ie have an appetite for b) will not want to eat and even have a disgust for?
 
Many Thanks,

based on the information "out there" it seems we crave what our body relies on..even if it doesn't agree and if there's yeast overgrowth.

Amazing how our bodies work....as well as how much it can control our craving centres.

Do you feel emotionally better with the foods you're avoiding?

How are you doing otherwise Damo?

Definitely. You'll crave the very foods that feed the yeast - sugary snacks, simple carbs that are quickly converted to sugar, peanut butter, cheese, breads, etc.

Those are also foods that are all really tasty, so I'm sure lots of people crave them, despite whether they have a yeast overgrowth or not.

For years, I've had times when all I wanted to eat was sugary, carb foods. My body craved them, and eating other things simply wouldn't cure the craving. I always attributed it to things like a med I was taking, lack of sleep, allergies, etc. It wasn't until recently that I read some info from a forum member called ucwarrior that went a long ways to explaining where my cravings were coming from. Yes, I do tend to be an emotional eater, and most of the time those foods end up being sugary junk food. But I've also had times when I was conciously not eating sugary stuff, and my carb cravings went away after a week or so. I'm not sure if it is a yeast overgrowth, but I consider sugar addiction to be one of the toughest habits to break.

Yeast-related cravings are stronger than the usual "yum, that tastes good, I want some of that." Yeast may be involved if you find yourself thinking about certain foods alot, planning when you can have them, eating them several times a day, feel you are almost unable to stop eating them once you get started, and/or feel a sense of well-being, almost a high, when you eat them.

that sounds like a sugar addiction. I agree with Brandon- sugar addiction is insidious!!! You won't even know you have it until you try to stop eating sweets- then you'll know pretty darned quick! It's worse than tobacco, I swear.

Asacol- 8 tabs/day
