The Best Way To Re-Introduce Sugar Back After The Candida Diet

September 3, 2019

Greetings! Eric Bakker, New Zealand naturopath, author
of Candida Crusher. Thanks for checking out the videos. Questions, I get them all the time. Imagine if you were in a job where people
ask you questions all the time. Do you mind? I actually quite enjoy it. Particularly answering the questions through
this channel to give people some good information. I like to cut the crap, as you know, and get
straight to the point. No point fluffing around. Eric, what’s the best way to reintroduce sugar
or sugar substitutes after completing the Candida diet. This is a question I get asked all the time. Constantly. People love sugar. People go crazy about sugar. People eat over two times their body weight
in sugar in a year. I’ve said this before in previous videos. At the turn of the century, around 1900, people
were eating about a pound of sugar a year. Now, people eat 300 or 400 pounds of sugar
a year. People eat huge amounts of sugar. Sugar is so cheap. You can buy bags of sugar so cheap. Sugar like salt once used to be very, very
expensive, but now it’s become so cheap. People love sugar. They really love sugar. They like sweet things. I can tell you now, once you enjoy bitter
things in your diet, you’ll start to tone down the amount of sugar that you eat. Bitter is the opposite of sweet. Bitter improves digestion. Bitter repels parasites. Candida hates bitter stuff. Sweet, especially refined sugar, bacteria,
yeast and parasite thrive on sugar. They thrive on that. You ruin your digestive health. I’m sure you can go to Google and type in
sugar and bad effects on health and just see pages with thousands of different effects
that sugar causes. That’s an interesting question. Let’s look at that question carefully. The best way to reintroduce sugar or sugar
substitutes after completing your diet. I would put it to you. How much do you like sugar? How important was sugar in your life? Were you eating lots of candy and chocolates
and ice creams all the time? Maybe it’s time after the Candida Crusher
approach for you to tone that kind of quantity of sugar down. Maybe you need to stop eating this kind of
sugar. Sugar substitutes are not a bad idea. Let me tell you what I did the other day. I made up a beautiful salad out of the garden. I got lots of stuff. Got all the kids home at the moment, so I
made up this really nice salad. It’s called Tabouli. It’s a Greek salad. Lots and lots of parsley chopped fine. Lots of mint chopped fine. I put tomatoes. A could of scallions with spring onions all
chopped fine. Mixed together. I put a bit of cracked wheat or bulgur, the
Greeks call it, or cracked wheat. You just boil this cracked wheat and squeeze
the water out of it. Mixed through it. Then guess what I did? I got a whole of a small bunch of stevia because
I grow lots of stevia plants. I cut these leaves up fine and I mixed it
through. That salad was so sweet. It was amazingly sweet. It was a beautiful salad. I want you to check out stevia. You can actually grow stevia as a little plant. It’s very smart for you to grow a couple of
these in the garden or in a pot. I can guarantee it. When you grow this stuff, you want it all
the time. You can grow big bushes out of it. It tastes fantastic. In fact, when you pull off a leaf and chew
it, you swear you just had a teaspoon of sugar in your mouth. The good thing about stevia is it’s a prebiotic,
so it actually helps to build beneficial bacteria. It contains many different flavones and blasticidins. Many different natural chemicals that have
an effect on slowing down the release of sugar into the system. It doesn’t create problems in terms of spiking
blood sugar. It doesn’t rot your teeth or cause dental
caries. Bacteria don’t thrive in the presence of stevia. Fresh stevia plant is perfectly acceptable
for a Candida person to have. Even if you’ve got Blastocystis or parasites. I’ve got no problem if you eat stevia. Clever to grow it. You can buy refined stevia powder, but you’re
better off growing a plant of stevia. The same thing holds for sugar cane. If you live in a warm country and you can
actually crush sugar cane juice, it’s actually a very healthy drink to have. It does contain a lot more sucrose than stevia
so you need to be careful with full blown yeast infections, but most healthy people
can tolerate reasonably large amounts of sugar cane juice over time. I’ve been speaking to people in Brazil, the
Philippines and other countries who drink lots of sugar cane juice. They’re skinny people with perfect gums and
teeth. They’ve got no diabetes. It’s a fantastic health food. Guys, there are many different types of natural
sugars that you can eat that are perfectly acceptable to have. But when buy stuff that a guy’s made in a
white coat in a factory, it’s usually crap. When you’re going to reintroduce sugar into
your diet, do what I do. Don’t buy sugar anymore. You don’t need raw sugar. You don’t need white sugar. I’m a beekeeper, so I keep lots of beehives. I’m quite lucky in that I can just break a
piece of honeycomb out whenever I want and have some nice fresh natural honey. Honey is a fantastic food when you haven’t
got a major yeast infection. If you’ve got a bad yeast infection, it’s
not great to eat that. I don’t find honey a really bad problem if
you’ve got a parasite problem. Especially the Manuka honey. Our beautiful Manuka New Zealand honey, which
is very healthy and also with a high hydrogen peroxide value it’s very antibacterial and
anti-parasitic I found out. When you come to reintroduce sugars into the
diet, stevia, xylitol, Manuka honey, sugar cane juice. Don’t buy sugar anymore. Don’t buy bags of sugar. Don’t add sugar into baking or cooking or
stuff like that. Stevia fresh is the best, but stevia powder
is perfectly acceptable. The other one I’d like you to look at is called
xylitol. Xylitol actually inhibit streptococci bacteria
in the mouth, so it stops dental plaque from forming. It’s endorsed by the British dental association. It’s a very healthy kind of a sugar made from
different plants like vegetables and fruits. Xylitol or stevia. I think stevia probably has the edge over
xylitol. If you’re going to buy candy when you recover,
make sure that the candy contains stevia, not refined sugar. Look for stuff like evaporated cane juice. All these crappy stupid fancy names that we
use for sugars on foods. There are many different names. If you’re unsure, go to Google. Type that word in and you’ll find it’s probably
a sugar. Here’s what I also put to you. If you’ve been eating quite a lot of a particular
kind of snack food high in sugar and then you did the Candida diet, that’s the kind
of sugar you need to put in last. Remember. Always maintain the foods with the highest
desires from you, the food that you want to eat all the time, is the last food you reintroduce. Not the first one you put back in. Because if you do that then by the time you
put the last one back in, the first one you put back in, you’ve ramped up the consumption
of it and then you could start getting problems again. Here’s another tip. All the foods that you’ve taken out that contain
sugar in them, write them all down on a list. A whole page of different foods that may have
contained sugar. Then put a line behind it and then score each
food one, two, three. Three, high desire; two, moderate desire;
one, low desire. One’s you put back in first. The two’s second. The third you put back in last. That’s going to allow your digestive system
time to grow beneficial bacteria back again rather than assaulting it with sugars, which
could bring yeasts, fungi, and bacteria back again. Use an intelligent approach. Best off to avoid sugar as much as you can. When you’re healthy like me, go for the natural
sugars. You’d be surprise how much honey I eat. You’d be surprised how much stevia I eat. I’ve got no digestive or bowel issues whatsoever. My Candida was so bad years ago that now I
can eat plenty of honey, no problem. Minimal gas. Nice flat tummy. No pain anywhere. Lots of energy. All these foods can come back into your diet
when you recover. Candy and things like that it’s just not something
I’m interested in. Ice cream. I like coconut ice cream. I wouldn’t eat dairy ice cream. There you have it. That’s how you’re going to reintroduce sugar
or sugar substitutes after the Candida Crusher diet. I hope that gives you some useful information. Click on the link below if you haven’t got

    after being on candida diet for many months i have to admit i don't care much for sweets and candy anymore. i'm a lot more health conscience of what i eat now. one of the best thing i learned throughout all of this is how to eat a better diet. but point is after many months of cleaning myself up i am able to eat sugar and candy again with no problem. i just had a piece of cake last week for my sister birthday with no problem. no gut problem, bloat or gas. i feel great. thanks to following the candida diet.

    ps i love manuka honey. it is the BEST honey i've ever eaten but it is so darn expensive.

    How do you add the stevia leaves to foods so that it serves as a sweetener?

    Eric you are agreat person. I really appreciate you

    I told my doctor i was on a low sugar diet, he told me it's a bad idea saying that i need some sugar in my diet, what a load of crap

  • Reply Dale MacKenzie September 10, 2018 at 10:49 pm

    Eric, you didn't answer the question, you told him to eat other sweeteners. I'm guessing he wanted to know how to determine that his system wasn't ready for sugar yet and what symptoms would tell him that.
