<span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:small;"><span style="color:#000080;">Hi all</span></span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:small;"><span style="color:#000080;">It's been a while since I posted but need some help please.</span></span></span><br><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:small;"><span style="color:#000080;">I've been told I probably have ME which docs think is being caused by a build up of thrush in the gut (brought on by starting on HRT, which isn't cool but has been a life saver for me) and have been told to go onto a Candida diet which means cutting out sugars, wheat and dairy produce from my diet for at least two months but preferably six.</span></span></span><br><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:small;"><span style="color:#000080;">I've been a veggie for nearly 30 years but must admit I'm a pretty lazy one and buy lots of processed veggie food. I work full time (shifts) and have quite a few animals so don't have a lot of free time. At the mo my hubby does all the cooking (he eats meat) and I do the majority of household stuff.</span></span></span><br><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:small;"><span style="color:#000080;">Has anyone had to do this diet before or have any tips.</span></span></span><br><span style="font-family:'Comic Sans MS';"><span style="font-size:small;"><span style="color:#000080;">All info gratefully received <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"></span></span></span><br><br>

I have, it is totally possible, you just have to be dedicated to sticking to it.<br><br>
absolutely no white flour, and pretty much nothing else white is a good rule of thumb to stick by.<br>
depending on your particular situation some fruit may be ok but limit it and know you may have to eliminate it.<br>
no alcohol whatsoever, not even a sip!<br>
no sugars, especially hfcs.<br>
limit intake of fats, no hydro fats at all. nuts and avocados is pretty much it.<br><br>
the best way to make this easy is to load up on veggies. brown rice is ok, quinoa is great, oatmeal is ok for some (not all however).
