Your candida diet guidelines are the key part to your natural cure to candida. By following the candida yeast diet you will get rid of candida forever.
The important thing to remember is that restricted diets do not last forever. You will no doubt feel a little overwhelmed at the beginning, wondering what exactly you can eat!
Take it one step at a time, prepare yourself and your kitchen by getting rid of all the foods that you need to avoid. And then fill up your kitchen cupboards and fridge with all of the healthy foods you can eat. For those sensitive to candida, it would be best to avoid sugar and sweets long term.
Basically, all foods containing sugar and yeast, including alcohol allow yeast to thrive, so they must be avoided for your candida free diet.
The book The Yeast Connection Handbook: How Yeasts Can Make You Feel "Sick All Over" and the Steps You Need to Take to Regain Your Health will give you excellent information with natural cures for candida.
Many people with candida have food intolerances or allergies. Determine if you have any and check the causes of candida to ensure you're on the right track for your cures for candida.
All vegetables, except for mushrooms raw or cooked, preferably fresh, but frozen is alright, preferably organic.
Avoid fruits the first month or more and then fruits are all right in moderation, except melons.

Nuts and seeds
Ensure oils are either extra virgin olive oil or

"I have had candida probably for decades. It presented as flu symptoms mostly around the sinuses. My energy was low and I was lethargic and depressed. I always felt like I had to preserve my energy and needed a lot of rest, I thought of myself as "sickly”. Also, following menopause I developed a middle aged gut which I could've get rid of no matter how I tried.
I have recently completed the 3 month Candida cure and feel better than I have EVER felt in my whole life. I have energy, sleep deeply, lost that bothersome extra 10 lbs and have my flat stomach back. My sweet cravings are non-existent and eating according to my body type has changed my life. I highly recommend doing this cure. It is somewhat daunting but with helpful hints and support from Sue Anne you will be successful as well. I only wish I had been offered this cure almost 30 years ago when I started this journey. Thank you Sue Anne.”
"It has been a year since I met with Sue-Anne to discuss my health. When I first saw Sue-Anne I was struggling with many health issues which could not be medically diagnosed but nonetheless really affected my quality of life. I was tired and bloated and had a lot of problems with digestion. I had been to many doctors and had numerous tests which showed nothing. I was very frustrated."
"Sue-Anne suggested I go on a candida diet and take specific supplements to help me. At the beginning I thought it would be impossible to stay with the diet as it was so restricting. Once the cravings subsided I started to feel better and the diet was easier to follow. I never realized that I was eating so much sugar or that it was causing a lot of my symptoms."
"There were a few set backs along the way but Sue-Anne was always there for me when I encountered a problem to give support and to adjust supplements to my needs. I stayed on the diet for over 6 months and my health has improved immensely during that time. I have more energy, my digestion is greatly improved and I feel healthy!"
"I am so grateful that I met Sue-Anne because she is the reason I am healthy today!"
