    The coffee thing was on here. Maybe misguided I don't know. Does straight black coffee contain sugar?

    Coffee, in whatever form you take it, creates a major insulin response, which causes your blood sugar / glucose to rise.

    i would not take this coconut oil for candida because i prefer to eat the coconut oil in the privacy of my own home where no one will see this.

    and about the boiled water being cheaper, you must study how much cheaper it will be. consider the energy you will use in boiling it.

    I bloody well didn't! Amazing, looks like candida eradication is my next step forward. So which are the more fibrous vegetables?!

    Try camomile tea, or a home brewed tea of ginger, garlic, and extra virgin olive oil / coconut oil in hot water.

    I know... Can you believe this might be the cause (or at least part of it)?! These tiny organisms inside us screaming to be fed!!!

    Fibrous veggies - found this ranking list here:
    Foods High in Fiber & Fiber Rich Foods

    I'm going to avoid the veggies in category A (already avoiding the beans and grains). Some people say the fibrous fruits have a bad reaction for them, but they are people with leaky gut etc. Avos and raspberries are okay for me.

    lol. To be honest, I've embarked on the Primal diet very gradually, and I'm going to do the same with Candida. I'm already seeing improvements just from going primal. I don't want to give up coffee, but I can go one or two days a week without drinking it. Maybe just try that and see how you feel.

    I'm sorry, but tea brewed with ginger, garlic, EVOO and coconut oil sounds positively revolting.

    I've had bone broth in the morning, and I still drink yerba mate.

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.
