Control Candida Yeast With Diet

Posted Oct 29 2009 11:00pm

Yeast Reduction – yeast control diet


The second step in controlling a yeast overgrowth is to stop feeding the yeast. There are many variations of a yeast control diet but this one works the best! Optimal results will be achieved by following this diet strictly for 8-12 weeks at the same time as you take the antifungal preparations.   If you cheat, it just takes longer for you to get well!


The following foods should be avoided completely during the course of the diet:


Sugar, honey, maple syrup,mollasses, corn syrup and all other concentrated sweets.


Vinegar, including mayonaise, mustard, ketchup and prepared salad dressings.


Aged or fermented products e.g. cheeses, soy, pickles, miso, tempeh, etc.


Alchohol, especially beer and wine


Peanuts and peanut butter




Dairy Products


Fruit juices and dried fruits


Commercial nuts


Margarines, heated oils and fried foods


Chemical additives, preservatives and dyes


Some people also need to avoid foods that contain yeast, including breads made with yeast as they have become “allergic” to all forms of yeast.


For the first three weeks of the diet   eat the following foods freely:


Protein - foods including lean meats, fish, chicken, turkey and eggs


Low-carbohydrate vegetables including: all kinds of green leafy vegetables including asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, cucumbers, brussel sprouts, bell peppers, okra, green beans, zucchini and summer squash, spinach


Butter and olive oil as needed


For the remainder of the diet gradually add several of the following complex carbohydrate and vegetables and foods including:


potatoes, yams, beets, eggplant, dry beans and peas, millet, oats, corn, wheat, quinoa, pasta, couscous, sweet potato, carrots, artichokes, avocado, rice, buckwheat, barley, rye, amaranth, rice cakes, cereals and tortillas
