Ok, I did it. I've been talking about it forever and have tried it - unsuccessfully - many times in the past. I've made it 6 weeks on the Candida Diet previously before the sugar craving put down it's mean little foot and slapped me silly for even thinking I could go sweet free.
But this time, I have a secret weapon. And a plan.
Yeast overgrowth in the body can cause so many things, from fatigue to all over body aches, to constant itching - and not just in the girly bits. During my last half-hearted attempt, my naturopathic doctor told me that since my body was so broken, it would take at least 6 months of being off of sugar, dairy, wheat, yeast and alcohol before it could start to heal itself properly. That's a depressing statement. But I fully agree with her.
This time around, I'm going a more direct route - a 15 day cleanse, complete with powders and pills to take twice a day.
And to make it even more wonderful - and effective - I'm also taking a fiber supplement twice a day.
Bottom's up! Wish me luck.
It's only 15 days. I can do it. Just take the supplements and stay away from sugar and everything else on the huge list on the fridge.
