Anti – Candida Diet

Definition: Candida/Fungus is commonly found in 80 % of the people; it is seen in the form of a skin rash and can sometimes be the cause of dangerous infections. This could also be your reason for not losing weight. Here at the studio I am working with a few clients that have this issue and I transitioning them onto this diet. If you find yourself craving sugar intensely you could have an overgrowth of Candida. Sometimes you may not realize how much sugar you are eating until you start logging and seeing how much sugar you are eating total in a day. The studio uses www.myfitnesspal.com.

Below are recipes to rid yourself of this fungus overgrowth in your system.
