Candida Foods To Eat: Best Foods To Eat With Candida Diet (2018)

August 26, 2019


Greetings. It’s Eric Bakker, naturopath from
New Zealand and author of Candida Crusher. Thanks for checking out my video today. As
you can imagine, I get an incredible amount of emails from patients from all around the
world from many different countries, particularly from the United States of America. I get lots
of frequently asked questions. I’ve got a question here from a guy called Tom Rutherford
in Texas, and Tom is asking me, Eric, what are the best foods to eat if I have a yeast
infection? The best foods to eat with Candida. Well, Tom, this is going to be quite an interesting
reply to your question because it’s not just about what foods are the best foods to eat
with Candida. There are many different ways we can answer the question and, unfortunately,
many Candida diet websites, base a lot of their information around foods. Foods do form
a very important consideration with yeast infections. But unfortunately, a lot of these
websites and sources of information don’t contain the full picture. In fact, I’m absolutely
stunned the longer I see patients, the more I realize that so many people can, in fact
eat fruit, can eat gluten, and can eat lots of bread. Even some patients can drink alcohol
and still recover from a yeast infection. So there is no one law that comes down like
a hammer that says, “You shall not eat this. You shall not eat that.” But the guidelines
I’m going to give you now, Tom, will be based on my experiences on many thousands of different
patients. What I think works best for the general population. And I’ll throw some more
information in along the line as we speak on situations other than foods.
Let’s just start by explaining a little bit about what is currently the whole idea with
the Candida diet. Most people will be quick to tell you that you’ve got to avoid anything
containing sugar or refined carbohydrates. That you’ve got to eat a diet that is quite
high in proteins, preferably lean sources of protein and focus more on the green leafy
vegetables. The general consensus is to avoid all forms of fruit and most forms of grain.
In fact, it almost sounds a bit like a specific carbohydrate kind of diet, doesn’t it? It’s
a paleo/SCD diet combined. That’s almost what this sounds like. There are no hard and fast
rules, and I wrote about this extensively in Candida Crusher.
However, when you’re starting off with a Candida diet approach, the first thing I always get
people to do is to do what I call a big clean up. So a big clean up means an assessment
of what you’re currently eating, particularly if you haven’t already made the changes toward
these types of foods, is to slowly wind down all your eating over a 14-day period. By that,
I mean cut out all forms of alcohol over a 14-day period. Stop eating takeaway or refined
foods, and start incorporating good foods into the diet.
What are the good foods? What are the best foods to eat when you’ve got a Candida yeast
infection? Well, the best foods are foods that support good digestion, that support
good immune function, and that support the proliferation of beneficial bacteria in the
digestive system. They discourage dysbiotic bacteria and Candida, and they also discourage
the ability to the challenge the immune system. Because nearly all people with Candida have
leaky gut syndrome. They have intestinal permeability. Nearly all people I see with Candida have
SIBO or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and all patients I see with Candida have got
stress, which increases permeability umpteen times.
Focus on high quality proteins in your diet. Proteins are important to eat, particularly
if you chew them really well. Chew them well. And also, I believe it’s important at this
stage to recommend that you take a good digestive enzyme/probiotic supplement at least twice,
if not three times per day. When you’ve gone through the big clean up and you’re going
into the initial stages of a good Candida diet is to support your digestion with a very
good quality enzyme dietary supplement. Because the enzyme is going to help your stomach,
the pancreas, and the small intestine. It’s going to facilitate proper breakdown. It’s
going to supply the body with some enzymes that it might be lacking.
A lot of doctors at this point will say, “What a load of bologna. You don’t need any supplements.
You can get everything in diet alone.” Yes, you can, but you can’t fast track your results
and you will not get a swift recovery and a full complete recovery without some kind
of supplement aid when taken at the right time. You don’t need a whole bunch of supplements
with Candida. You just need to take the right kind of stuff.
Make sure you chew your food. I haven’t even mentioned foods and I’m already talking about
chewing food. Unless you chew your food properly, you’re not going to stimulate the parasympathetic
nervous system. Your pancreas – I’ve mentioned this many times before in previous videos
– your pancreas only has parasympathetic domination and not sympathetic domination.
If you don’t know what that means, go and look up what sympathetic and parasympathetic
nervous systems are. So rest and digest is the stress part of the autonomic function.
If you really want to digest foods properly, you’ve got to chew them properly. No point
in taking pills. I don’t give a toss what kind of food you eat. If you don’t chew it
properly, you’re not going to digest it properly. If you don’t relax when you eat, you’re never
going to digest it. Eggs, especially good quality free-range eggs.
Chicken, clean fish, if you can get a nice ocean caught fish. We’ve got plenty of beautiful
fish down here in New Zealand. A good quality fish. You guys in the States call it “grass
fed” beef. We don’t have anything but grass fed beef here in New Zealand. Everything is
grass all around us, so all our sheep and cattle all eat beautiful green lush grass.
As far as I know, no cattle are fed with grains down here. Grass fed beef. These sorts of
proteins are going to help improve your digestion. Try and eat them at least twice per day, if
you can. If you’re a vegetarian watching this, make
sure that you incorporate good quality nuts, seeds, and legumes into your diet. There are
many different kinds of legumes you can eat, different beans, and peas. I’m also a fan
of soy and tofu. I know a lot of people out there think it’s almost like toxic nuclear
waste going into the digestive system because it’s so maligned, but a lot of my patients
have successfully eaten organic tofu now for as long as I’ve been a practitioner. I’ve
eaten tofu for over 30 years and I haven’t grown breasts or become retarded or anything
out of it yet. And a lot of my clients do have soy products. That’s your call. I think
soy does form an okay part of the diet. Let’s look at the vegetable sources. I can
do a whole video on vegetables alone. There are so many different vegetables that are
great with Candida and SIBO, particularly the vegetables that have got plenty of starches
in them. We call them resistant starches. Vegetables contain different kinds of oligosaccharides,
particularly sugars that they get broken down to and feed up the beneficial bacterial. I
think I’ve done some videos on FOS and GOS foods with the SIBO videos that I’ve completed.
Fructooligosaccharide and galactooligosaccharide. You’re going to get these out of a lot of
foods. Globe artichokes, asparagus, many different foods contain these beneficial sugars.
See, not all sugars are bad with Candida. The sugars that we don’t want you to have
are Mars bars or Coca-Cola. These sorts of sugars are not good. Confectionary, candy,
chocolate bars, chewing gum with artificial sugar in it, processed foods, a lot of boxed
cereals; these are all junk foods. You shouldn’t really be eating these if you want to recover
from any kind of illness. Proteins, many different kinds of vegetables. Leafy greens are my favorite.
I like broccoli, spinach. Carrots, celery, there are many of them. There is a lot of
debate about can I eat carrots, squash, pumpkin, and the cucurbitaceae family with Candida.
Yes, you can, but you need to avoid them if you’ve got a seriously bad yeast infection.
In the first three to four weeks, you probably want to avoid things like pumpkin and squash.
In America now, you guys are going into fall, going into winter, so a lot of people will
probably be eating things like sweet potatoes, pumpkins, squash, and those sort of things.
Sweet corn also falls into that category. You need to be careful with sweet corn. When
it’s first picked, it contains a lot of sugar. But after three days of it being picked, a
lot of that sugar converts to starch, so it’s not quite so sweet anymore.
If you look at bananas when they’re green as opposed to yellow, corn when it’s very
fresh, just picked versus a day or two or three old, there’s a big difference how that
can affect your gut. You may want to experiment with half green/half yellow bananas. If you
like bananas and you don’t want to avoid them, don’t eat them yellow. Eat them green or half-green.
The safest bananas are the plantain or the deep green bananas because you can cook them
in coconut milk, which is very nice. As you can see, you can modify food and it may be
okay by looking at the ripening of that food. Most vegetables I’m quite happy with you having
with Candida, providing you chew them well. I don’t like raw vegetables too much unless
we look at salads. Steamed and stir fried are a very good way of eating vegetables.
A lunch for me will often mean a small piece of fish or two free-range eggs or a piece
of chicken and some vegetables out of the garden, like some steamed broccoli or some
steamed spinach, and then there might be a little bit of quinoa with that, a grain like
that. I tend to eat very light lunches, light dinners. I tend to eat smaller meals frequently.
Vegetables are generally fine. Just be careful of the starchy ones when you start. Leafy
greens, proteins are fine. Fruit. Be careful with fruit with Candida.
The permissible fruits are green apple, kiwi – one kiwi fruit per day is usually okay
– pomegranate if you can get it is quite a good fruit. Avocados are always fine to
eat. Some of the nicest fruits to eat and healthy ones with Candida are blueberries.
Any kind of berry is generally acceptable as long as you don’t have too much of it.
Blueberries, strawberries, boysenberries, raspberries, huckleberries, any of those kind
of things. Don’t buy them in cans with syrup or sugar in them. Make sure they’re fresh
and raw. Raw berries put through smoothies are quite nice. I’m not a big fan of processed
jams or berries like that. But if you grow them, they’re a fantastic food to eat. Quite
a nice adjunct to add to your diet. Grains, plenty of grains you can eat. It’s
up to you to experiment with them. One of my favorites is sourdough rye bread. I’ve
discovered that this food contains a lot of wild yeast like sourdough does, and generally,
it’s quite acceptable to eat this with Candida. If you’ve got a phobia with gluten, then you
want to avoid rye, of course. You can actually get gluten free rice bread. Rice doesn’t contain
gluten. That might be a good option for you. Quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth, wild rice, I
love wild rice, red rice. You can get brown basmati rice. There are about 50 different
sorts of rice you can get. Try to avoid white rice, but stick more with the brown rice.
For every cup of brown rice, I generally put in one to two teaspoons of the black wild
rice. Try the red rice. It’s quite nice, too. How much rice? I just had an email saying
Eric, how much rice can I eat per day. You probably want to stick with about half a cup
of brown rice per day, but see what the digestive comfort is like, the bowel motions, the gas
and the bloating. Be sure to take a digestive enzyme/probiotic,
particularly when you’re changing your diet and when you’re staying on the diet long term.
Initially, you may want to take two or three of these enzyme/probiotics per day. As your
bowels improve and the bowel motions really improve, you can cut back to one per day maintenance
long term. Check out my Canxida Restore. I worked a long
time on this formula. I’ve put in it the best enzymes and probiotics. I’ve taken fructooligosaccharide
out of this product. In my opinion, avoid dietary supplements containing prebiotics,
inulin, and FOS. I found too many problems with these products with patients long term.
I’ve used many of these products like Syntol and ThreeLac and Floracor-gi and the list
goes on. There are many of them. Many companies now believe that you need to put a prebiotic
with a probiotic. I think it’s a wrong move. I’ve been disappointed using these products
time and again because I had too much feedback. That’s why I created my own product. But check
it out. Go to Canxida.com and have a look at Canxida Restore. It’s a fantastic product.
And it’s a particularly good product when you’re going to look at this kind of dietary
approach. And it partners up absolutely perfectly with my Canxida Remove, an antifungal/anti-bacterial
product. Check out my next video. I’m going to do a
video right now on foods to avoid with Candida. I hope you got a good picture on what to eat.
There are lots you can eat. Now, remember, the diet is modifiable at any stage. I get
so many emails from people saying, “Can I eat this? Can I eat that?” Try. See if
it works for you. Some people can actually eat bananas, pineapples and apples every day,
one or two, and have no problem at all. Other people can’t. How is that so? It’s got to
do with the type of bugs that they’ve got in their gut at the time. It’s got to do with
how well the pancreas is functioning, how much amylase it produces, for example. How
effective their digestive organs are. How relaxed they are when they eat can make a
big difference. It’s not just the foods you eat. It’s what your body does with the food
you eat that makes all the difference with Candida. And that’s why there is no complete
black and white, yes and no list. There never will be. It’s fluid. It’s modifiable. What
suits you may not suit another person. And I know that after seeing now thousands of
Candida patients. You need to experiment. What works for you, works for you. Make a
note of that. Catch up with me in the next video. Thanks
for tuning in.

    I might've asked before, but it seems the general consensus is to just have acv but no other vinegars, or organic white vinegar. Is this really true or would mustard and whole30 sauces be okay? I was also told to avoid all other vinegars (not acv) at first. Was also told no raw honey for 6 weeks but some say it cures candida… What's your viewpoint on that? Do you, as a very healthy person, eat any sauces with added sugars? I know its said to try and avoid added sugars but many encourage raw honey. is organic cane sugar any better than typical white sugar? Thanks!!

    I can't really find one on organic white vinegar, well there is an ACV one but how is organic white vinegar a no no or is this a myth like mushrooms?

    One more time I totally agree with you from my own experience of candida overgrowth for years in my body – I am vegan (its an ethical/spiritual choice since im buddhist) eating a low carbs diet N high fats n proteins with a bunch of nuts n seeds n tofu or tempeh n fermented foods such as coconut yogurt n fermented cabbage (ways more effective than regular probiotics n much more cheaper) a lot of seaweed (in Miso soup) n algae such as Spirulina/Chlorella (be careful with this one since it is an effective chelator which remove heavy metals stored in your body) – A very good example is bananas since it is a stapple food 4 any serious vegan …right 🙂 but it is insane to live without eating this trully delicious Eden Garden's fruit …I finally found out that slightly unripen bananas works better than fully ripen ones since they contain less sugar and are much more beneficial for healthy bacteria n intestinal transit with the prebiotic fibers still available in those ones – just dont eat more than 3/4 in one session (a meal) depends as well of your physical activity during the day – hope it will help

    I've been on medications for menopausal hot flashes for years and after three weeks of eating 'Candida Crusher' style, not ONE hot flash.  How crazy is that? The change was almost instant – I actually did not even notice until two weeks into the new eating way, I was starting to forget to take my pills and realized what had happened. Last night, I had two pieces of bread and guess what!  Hot flashes last night, and grumpy this morning.  Interesting experiment!  No more bread – it is just not worth it.

  • Reply Natures Glove July 18, 2017 at 8:18 pm

    Hello! Thank you for your informative videos – they have helped me gain some valuable knowledge along my Candida journey.

    I have battled Candida (unknowingly until now) since I was 14. When I improved my diet and lifestyle around 5 years ago my symptoms improved drastically. I went from having 2-3 yeast infections a year to MAYBE 2-3 in a 5 year period. I had eczema around my nose and only within the past three years have I experienced relief from it (although it still lingers and gets agitated if I fall off the ban wagon.) Throughout all these years I had NO IDEA candida could have been the cause of my issues.

    Recently I committed to an ANTI candida protocol of my own (Following my , as each person is different and I couldn't find one protocol that fit my personal needs) for the past month and a half. Although I feel like I have won the war with candida, I felt as if there were one battle left to be fought – so I decided to go on a Candida strike and cut out sugars completely. 

    Within the first 3 days of no sugar, I watched the candida leave my body (as a mild yeast infection.) I knew it was the yeast dying because I didn't eat anything that could have activated an infection, especially since I have been virtually free of them for many years now. After that passed I went through some emotional ups and downs without the sugar but other wise have felt pretty good overall. I am taking probiotics, caprylic acid (Rotating with oregano oil), cranberry, and using diatomaceous earth as a detoxing agent.

    Since I have been on and off treating Candida without realizing it for many years now – is it possible that the yeast infection I experienced recently was most of the "overgrowth" coming to an end? I definitely plan on sticking with a healthy diet and keeping sugars to a minimum, but do you think it would be unsafe to add things back such as dates? Obviously with moderation…

    I guess the best thing to do would be to try it and see how my body reacts, as each person is different. I recently bought a "candida cookbook" and the lady who wrote it dealt with Candida for a long portion of her life. She says that although her health has returned she still cannot eat Dates or certain fruits, etc because it initiates a response in her body.

    I apologize for the book, I guess I am just looking for a professionals opinion. Do you think I need to continue to be on a strict protocol for more than a month and a half even though my case seems to be less severe than others? Or is it just lying dormant in my body waiting for me to skip steps and feed its hunger? Haha

    Thanks again!

    Brilliant. Thank you. I've been sick since 1999 and got diagnosed with myoclonic epilepsy, fibromyalgia and other rubbish which I don't have thank God. The NHS in the UK left me to it and GPs would look at me like I'm mad and simply dismiss me. Last summer I almost died. Finally got tests done at a small private clinic and lo and behold found that I have colonies and colonies of parasites in my colon. I'd been saying for years something is eating me up from the inside and is eating all the good food, even supplements that I'm taking. I was right. With a huge parasite infestation Of course I'm suffering with acidity, Candida, anaemia, bloating, aches and pains, even violent convulsions, and unbelievable weakness. I'm 36 and can barely walk. Going up the stairs is a mission. Can't fast. Fortunately I'm on the road to recovery and consider myself VERY lucky to be alive. I've taken most of my family members to the same clinic (in the tiny british town of Halifax – so tiny and of hardly any consequence to anyone ) and most of them also have Candida – yayyy we are all on pretty much the same diet and are helping each other. Your videos are great help and encouragement – thank you and may God bless you. Greetings of peace to you from the UK.

    I've become concerned about green leafy veg, especially spinach and kale because they're high in histamines and seeing as most of us have intolerances perhaps we should avoid those. It's been suggested that black kale is ok but I don't know how true that is. The lettuce family is ok, especially romano lettuce. I'm surprised that you're suggesting foods which are very high in histamines Eric?

    I don't see information on amounts of good fats to eat. I eat high fat, moderate protein plus steamed veggies. Do you see any potential problems with a diet that's more ketogenic for candida?

    Chew well and be relaxed while you eat! For vegans: nuts, seeds, legumes, tofu, asparagus, artichokes, leafy greens, broccoli, spinach, carrots, celery, pumpkin, squash, sweet potatoes, potatoes, green bananas,… quinoa (small amount), green apples, kiwi (max. one per day), pomegranate, avocado, blueberries, any kind of berries (not too many), sour dough rye bread (!), buckwheat, rice (brown), red rice (half a cup) – Probiotics (2-3 per day in beginning), amaranth, no pre-biotics, .. Check if it works for you and modify if needed.

    What you SAY sounds great but I had candida in my ears sooo bad that it had taken part of my hearing, my sense of taste and my eyesight. So if I ate any fruit at all it would set it off like an alarm and I would want to rip my ears out of my head. I have also since discovered fats raise your sugar level and after two years on a strict diet I also stopped eating avocados and almonds. I finally cured my ears by going to the drugstore buying antifungal liquid and dropping it into my ears. I got my hearing back, my taste back and my eyesight by morning. Since I could FEEL what fed candida I know for a fact fruit is not a good choice

    Hi Doc, please read and answer me… i'm so worry about my condition…
    this is my second pregnancy…. the first week of pregnancy I was positively infected with candida. the days were getting better until I went to the obstetrician. a few days later, the candida infection in my vagina worsened again and improved again. the obstetrician gave me medicine for three days. after the drug runs out it returns to improve. now I feel if I consume a lot of sweet drinks and foods containing gluten. it will be bad again. my question is. How do I balance candida in pregnancy? Should I go on a strict diet? what about my nutrition during pregnancy?

    does this affect my baby?

    I am very uncomfortable with the feeling of itching…..

    You don’t have grain fed cattle in New Zealand, and here in the US it’s hard to find cattle that’s not grain fed. And when it is truly grass fed farmers charge absurdly high prices for it. This country has just become laughable. I would love to get out of the US so I could just eat natural food, instead of the processed industrialized chemically infused garbage that’s keeping everyone sick in this country. This year the US moved down to #35 for the healthiest countries in the world. And everyone just thinks it’s great that we can hybridize everything and make it GMO and then spray millions of gallons of roundup on the GMO crops to yield more crops. We’re the most advanced and wealthy country on the planet, and we’re getting sicker and sicker every year

    So is it fine to take prebiotic alone. Do you mean we have to separate between probiotics and prebiotics. If so how many hours should be the gap between both of them.
    Thank you. Regards
