I'm at college and cutting out rice will be hard as I am a poor student and need those extra carbs...
edit: been on a paleo/anti candida diet for 8 months now, I moved to NYC which is extremely humid at the moment and it seems to have made my symptoms worse! I have been eating a healthy amount of carbs daily and have not changed much - should I carry on the way I am?
Diet will help you get rid of candida. Introducing gut flora via raw, fermented foods will also help you get rid of candida, as all those acidophilus ("acid-loving") bacteria actually EAT candida for breakfast. The more good bacteria you eat, unpasteurized/killed off, the less yeast you'll have growing in you.
As for the white rice, I would just be mindful of the quantity you consume. Eat your rice slowly so you can stop when you know you've had enough. We need carbs (in my estimation), but so many of us eat way more than we have to. Feed just yourself. If you overeat, you are probably also feeding the yeasty guys.
Yes but you can eat brown rice though I wouldn't eat it everyday. I was told by my doc that rice helps the candida bind to something so it had a transport vehicle to leave the body with so it's good to have. I personally found it spikes my insulin though and causes other cravings that you can't do much about on the cleanse so I avoided it. Are you taking a supplement too?
