What is the Candida Diet?
Candida is the most common fungus in our bodies and, when it grows to excess, it can result in infections throughout the body. (1) Candida overgrowth can also cause symptoms like bloating, indigestion, and fatigue. (2)
The candida diet aims to combat this gut imbalance by eliminating inflammatory foods like sugar, soy, wheat, and gluten to prevent yeast overgrowth. (3) Instead, you’ll focus on eating more healthy fats, high-quality protein, and non-starchy veggies.
Before you switch up your diet, though, be sure to check in with your doctor to see if the candida diet is right for you. You may not be suffering from candida overgrowth at all, or you might require a stricter diet that better caters to your body.

- Low in starch (avoid sweet potatoes and other tubers)
