30 Bananas a Day!

In most diets when you are trying to get rid of Candida they tell you to stay away from white foods whcih includes bananas.. I eat 100% raw now and am still learning of course but I eat alot of bananas. So my question is does the banana rule still apply even if you have cut all other sugar's,viniger and candida feeding foods from your diet?

Hey Mel, The goal shouldn't be to get rid of Candida - it is vital to our survival, it helps regulate our blood sugar levels. Candida becomes a problem when it mushrooms out of control. I got my candida back into balance within a week on just bananas & maintain this balance by eating 955 for the majority of the year. So keep bananas in your diet!! Even Just bananas for that matter...

Thank you so much Freelee that helps me alot but I have no idea what 955 means?
955 (short for 90/5/5) refers to the percentage of calories from carbohydrates, proteins, and fats in the diet, i.e. 90% carb, 5% protein, and 5% fat. The 80/10/10 diet (or 811) refers to a minimum of 80% of your total calories from carbs, a maximum of 10% protein and a maximum of 10% fat.
"even if you have cut all other sugar's,viniger and candida feeding foods from your diet?"

The issue is not feeding candida. The issue is OVERfeeding candida. With a lot of fat in your diet, you're stuck with elevated blood sugar levels when you eat sugar because your blood is moving too slow, so the candida get overfed. The solution is not to treat symptoms (cut sugar intake), but eliminate the cause (cut fat intake, eat only natural sugar from whole fruits).
anyone have any ideas? I'm having the same problem.
Yes, I am too. I ate 811 with no overt fats for 3 months and had pretty good results but not symtom free. I didn't know if the candida was under control because I haven't been retested yet. Then, I added tiny amounts of fat back and am now having problems. When I say tiny, like 1/4 avocado or a 2-4 nuts 2-3 times a week. I guess it was too much because everything flared up. And, then, I felt depressed and had some cooked foods which made everything worse. So, now I'm back to 811 with no overt fats. Is that the answer and for how long? Does anyone have experience with this? It is difficult to always hear from people who got quick and easy results rebalancing their candida. It makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong. Is there anyone out there who followed 811 strictly and it took longer, like 6 months or more? Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Johanna, no need to feel bad, you haven't been doing anything wrong. Normally candida issues resolve very quickly, usually within days, once overt fat consumption is ceased. This was the case for myself, after years of trying EVERYTHING, as is the case for many people.

If it takes considerably longer than this it suggests you may have an underlying health issue that needs to be dealt with first. Candida overgrowth is caused by high blood sugar, and high blood fat levels are one of the most common causes. Those with thyroid, adrenal or pancreatic issues may also experience difficulty with high blood sugar. It may be that if you get lots of rest and avoid consuming overts for long enough this issue will resolve itself, it is also possible that water fasting would be the most effective option. I am not an expert on the topic, and if you are concerned I would consider consulting with someone like Doug Graham on the issue. I'm almost positive he would have considerable experience treating long-standing candida issues that did not respond immediately to the usual treatment.
Mango GG: if a short water fast doesn't help, then it may be time to consider doing a long term water fast. You could always ask Doug Graham on his msg board what he would recommend. He has stated more than once that if you have an underlying health issue that needs to be dealt with then candida may persist in spite of eliminate overt fat consumption and bringing blood fat levels down to normal. Candida overgrowth is caused by high blood sugar, and there are other possible causes than excess blood fat levels. What symptoms have you been experiencing? With patience I'm sure you will be able to find a solution my friend. :)
Its true, there is no 'anti-candida' diet, those diets are actually PRO candida overgrowth diets, lol, believe me I've tried many of them for long periods of time. Besides, our body needs candida, it's job is to keep our blood sugar from rising too when insulin is having difficulty doing its job of delivering sugar to our cells.
Hi,
I guess there are a few of us who are experiencing the same issues. I have had no overts since spring and my symptoms improved, but they retuned after adding minute overt fats. I have not tried a fast but if MangoGG will be trying one please let us know how things went. Also I was thinking maybe too many bananas? What is a good substitute for bananas?
