I’ve been asked before whether a high-carb, low-fat, vegan diet will effective for Candida eradication.
My short answer is no, and I don’t think it is at al the best diet for achieving gut health. A high-carb diet is count to what we are trying to achieve. I don’t recommend a diet that is high/low of anything. I recommend a common-sense diet.
I am definitely against crazy, fad diets. I’m not referring to veganism when I make that statement. I think following a vegan diet is a very honorable way to eat. But, I don’t think it’s the best approach for me. It may be perfectly fine for someone else.
High-carb diets can cause problems because it often means the diet is low in protein. I consider protein essential for Candida eradication. Moderate to high levels of protein, high levels of good fats, and moderate levels of carbs is my preferred combination.
I believe that low-fat, high-carb diets interfere with natural satiety. This kind of diet will leave you very hungry, which puts you at risk of grabbing junk food. You could find yourself eating a lot more chocolate than usual. You could be having drinks with too much sugar in them because you want a bit of a pickup or need a boost.

A meal such as salmon, steamed broccoli, and asparagus is an excellent meal for Candida eradication. It contains protein, fats, minerals, and carbs.
In my opinion, many vegan people don’t eat enough or the right kind of protein. When this happens, a person can end up hungry and weak. There is also the risk of not getting enough B12 or vitamin D.
I have had several vegan patients who were not able to eradicate a chronic vaginal yeast infection or chronic jock itch. Some of these people have had the problem for years. These clients weren’t able to get on top of their yeast infections until they agreed to add more protein to their diet.
I honestly don’t think that a high carb/low fat is the way to go to eradicate Candida or to eradicate parasites or bad bacteria. I don’t think it’s the way to go to get your digestive system in top shape.
Once you’ve eradicated bugs and you’re in an excellent level of health, you can start heading towards a vegan diet.
