Eggs Candida Diet

Candida albicans: Some feel that high sugar meals promote Candida Albicans growth. This means sweets like cakes, cookies, candy, processed breads, etc. Using whole grain flour may help a little with this because the sugar would be delivered a little more slowly to your system, but it is still sugar. High sugar fruits (pineapple, papaya, etc) might be seen this way also. ...Read more
Balance the diet: A lacto-vegan has many choices for foods. A good nutrition book or a visit to a dietician can help form a balanced diet. Eating a big variety of foods helps prevent nutrient deficiencies. Also, one can take a daily multivitamin+mineral tablet. Lowfat or nonfat dairy products have plenty of protein. One can buy natural, gluten-free foods and cook them without adding salt, sugar, oil, nor vinegar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fresh eggs ok. : Eggs are not a dairy product, and if fresh and eaten soon after being well cooked should not be a problem to digest and will not have mold spores. Egg beaters which are pasteurized are ok too. Eggs have no residue ( which means they are low in fiber). That is a good thing if you have diarrhea. Good health ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not corn flakes!: I don't consider corn flakes a healthy diet choice, esp. If not organic as they are genetically modified and contain bt toxin . Corn flakes are a great example of a high-carb food with low nutrient density that increases risk of obesity & diabetes. Yogurt is fine but should also be organic. Organic eggs are a good choice, but fruits, veggies, nuts & beans are good choices too. See my comment:. ...Read more

Is gluten free pasta ( maize starch, soy flour, potato starch and rice starch)with about 40 gm carbohydrates good for cholesterol ?
Does not matter: Since 90% of the cholesterol is produced by the body regardless of your diet, the above would not noticeably affect your cholesterol level. Do note that too much carb may not be good for your health. I don't believe extreme diet does anyone any good. Just eat anything in moderation and exercise at least 3 hrs a week will likely keep you in better shape. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Blood cholesterol levels are only partly determined by diet. If you have any concerns, you should get your blood lipids done in fasting state and if your total cholesterol is less than 200 and LDL less than 130 and you do not have any risk factors for heart disease, two eggs/day will be okay. ...Read more
Yes: If you're being treated for "high cholesterol", diet can be helpful. If you love cholesterol-rich eggs, it's still you choice. About 90% of what you read online, and some advice you may get from physicians, is sub-scientific. Staying physically fit is at least as important as food choices to managing cholesterol and coronary risk. If you truly need medication, don't hesitate. Best wishes. ...Read more

Yes, unless allergic: There are 2 main groups of foods to avoid on a candida diet: sugars (including lactose) & simple starches that feed candida & any foods you may be allergic to. Those with candida often develop allergies to gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, soy, almonds & yeast. If you are not allergic to whey then it's healthy to eat. The best way to tell is to avoid potential allergens for at least a week then try them. ...Read more
