Losing weight sometimes happens when you change your diet to something much healthier. I’ve had viewers and clients ask for some advice about how not to lose too much weight while following the Candida diet.
Firstly, make sure you know what you’re treating. You may want to do a stool test to determine what’s going on inside your gut, and then act on that information. If you have an intolerance to different foods, it’s very important to do a comprehensive stool analysis. You may even need to have a SIBO breath test if you’ve got an upper GI problem
I recommend following the Candida Crusher Diet. One of the diets I wrote about in my book is the MEVY (meat, eggs, vegetables, and yogurt) diet. The MEVY diet is excellent for your gut but also can provide all the nutrients and energy you need to sustain your weight.

Make sure you’re eating enough food. I had one client who was only eating two eggs and lots of vegetables each day. He was worried about the amount of weight he was losing. I don’t recommend that kind of a spartan type diet. If I ate like that, I’d probably lose 10 pounds in a week. There is no reason to restrict your intake on the Candida Crusher diet.
There are lots of functional, healthy foods on the Candida diet that can provide the calories needed to maintain your weight. Healthy fats from olive oil, coconut oil, and avocados are perfectly acceptable on the Candida diet and are a good source of calories. If three meals a day isn’t enough to keep your weight up, add some snacks. You need to avoid being nutritionally depleted while trying to cure your gut problems. Your digestive tract needs ample nutrients to restore it to a healthy state.
