Should I Avoid All Fruits On Candida Diet
Hi, Eric Bakker here again from Candida Crusher.FAQ No. 2. Here's a question from Gary in Seattle.Should I avoid all fruits? This is a good question, Gary, and this isa question I get asked time and again by people both through email and in my consulting room.I firmly believe that for the first 14 days to 21 days in particular it's very prudentto avoid most of the sweet fruits, and these generally include oranges; most varietiesof apples, which are high in sugar; particularly dried fruits, grapes, figs, foods like that;foods that people generally like to snack on.I don't really find them conducive for the
initial stages of Candida, but I do recommendthat they be reintroduced down the track. Fruits which I find that are generally fine,not a problem, the blueberries and many varieties of berries; they're quite alkaline and tart.Avocados are fine. Granny Smith apples are fine. Limes are fine. Lemons are fine. Somepeople can get away with pineapple and another fruit which some can tolerate quite well aregrapefruits, particularly if they put one or two drops of grapefruit seed extract withthe grapefruit, it's not a problem. But generally, you need to be cautious with fruit. Now Ifind some information on the internet goes from avoid all fruits entirely to eat as manyfruits as you want.
In my book, Candida Crusher, you'll find extensiveinformation on fruit consumption, which fruits you can have, which ones are high in fructose,and the best way to reintroduce fruits again in the third phase of my diet, the food reintroductiondiet. So there you go, Gary, I hope that answersyour question. Thank you.
Are LowSugar Fruits OK On The Candida Crusher Diet
Hi there. It's New Zealand naturopath, EricBakker. I'm the author of Candida Crusher and I'm also the formulator of the Canxidarange of dietary supplements. Thanks for checking out this tutorial today. I receive a nice Facebookmessage from a person here in the United States. I'm just going to read that out now. Thisgentleman has got a question for me, which I'm going to reply to in this YouTube tutorial.Philip is saying here, quot;Eric, you're like a celebrity to me and my wife. We have watchedover 30 of your tutorials and we're huge Bakker fans.quot; Thanks for that, Philip. quot;What's yourcurrent take on low sugar fruits? You seem hesitant with low sugar fruits as time goeson in regards to your opinion on them. My
wife and I eat pomegranates, blueberries andraspberries. We've been on your Candida Crusher diet for two months now. We're 30 years ofage and 27 years of age. She's lost 40 pounds. I've lost 8. We still have some symptoms,but not as bad. I would say maybe 70 percent of the symptoms. And cranberry juice. Is thatokay? Seem to get rid of the infection for a little bit, but now it seems to bring backthe heartburn.quot; Let's go back, Philip, and talk about thelow sugar fruits and my take on the low sugar fruits. There are a couple of reasons whyI tend to recommend be careful with fruits, particularly at the beginning of the CandidaCrusher diet approach. And also in some cases,
but not all, be careful of the starchy vegetables,the starchy carbohydrate vegetables. Let's look at the fruits.Well, either people eat way too much fruit or they don't eat enough fruit, and I findthat typically so. In England, apparently, not many people eat a wide variety of fruitsat all and that could be because of the cost of eating fruit because it can be more expensivethere. But it could also be habitual because not many people, I think, eat fruit and passthat kind of a trend down into the generations. Fruit doesn't seem to be a big thing in theUK. Meat and vegetables seem to be the staple. Many countries like New Zealand and Australiawhere fruits are cheaper, people do eat fruit,
but people don't quite eat enough fruit whenthey're really healthy. And there's a lot of confusion about fruit. How many piecescan you eat? Can you eat it with meals? Do you have to eat it away from food? Food combining.Maybe these are some things that I'll address in this tutorial as well.When you're healthy, I think that eating fruit every day is a very smart move. But I reallybelieve in my personal opinion that any more than two or three pieces a day is a bit overthe top. Fruit does contain a lot of sugars in it and many different kind of sugars. Theyhave to think back a long time ago and throughout history, people did eat fruit, but I believethat today we've got a much wider variety
and we either eat in excess as I mentionedor not enough. Common sense, folks. You need to eat regular amounts of fruit all the timeand pick fruits that make you feel good, improve your bowel function and digestive function.Fruits that don't make you bloat or burp or fart that create problems.Personally, I like green apples. I tend to eat one green apple every day. I quite likethem. I like berries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, we grow a lot of strawberries.We've got lots coming up at the moment with springtime. Pomegranates are a fantastic fruit.And we've got two avocado trees because I like avocados. I believe that an avocado everyday is a very good investment for your health
long term.If you've got Candida, you need to be very careful. Not just of fruits, but of sugarsin general. Some fruits tend to have a stronger reaction with yeast infection than other fruits.From my experience in the for many years, I found the citrus fruits not to bevery good with people with yeast infection. Some citrus is. The citrus, I think, thatare okay will be limes and lemons. I've never found those to be an issue with people, butyou need to be particularly careful of mandarins and oranges and tangelos, you know, the orangeykind, the sweet kind of citrus fruits. Be careful of those.Watermelons, pineapples, mangoes, guavas,
