Is it ok to consume lactose-free milk (whey protein isolate) in candida diet?

Is it ok to consume lactose-free milk (whey protein isolate) in candida diet?

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.

What's the benefit of consuming complex carbohydrates (grains mostly) over simple carbohydrates (fruits, veggies)?

What's the benefit of consuming complex carbohydrates (grains mostly) over simple carbohydrates (fruits, veggies)?

You got it backwards: Fruits and veggies are NOT simple carbohydrates! Simple carbohydrates are sugars and foods that easily break down into sugars, such as white flour, white rice, potatoes and juices. These readily raise our blood sugar, which is unhealthy. Complex carbohydrates are found in whole grains, most vegetables and fruits and generally contain fiber. These raise blood sugar less. See http://tinyurl. Com/y8f4cagu

Could you tell me what are lean proteins and complex carbohydrates exactly?

Could you tell me what are lean proteins and complex carbohydrates exactly?

Both?: Lean proteins have little fat. Fish, poultry-both skin less, lean red meat, lean pork-all qualify. Beans and lentils have carbs which are complex, have fiber, and much protein. Complex carbs are low glycemic and the body does not convert them to sugar quickly. Nuts, whole grains would qualify. There are others!

How can you count your protein, fat and carbohydrate calories?

Caloric value: Carbs and protein provide 4kcal (just consider these calories) per gram. Fat contains 9 calories per gram. But for watching your weight, one must consider the magic of insulin. It stores fat - big time! So keep Insulin low by avoiding sweets and starches. Use green veggies as a sole source of carbohydrates to optimize your weight. It doesn't get any simpler or more successful than that.

Looking for high protein vegan foods. What percent of tofu (regular square blocks, medium or hard type) is protein, fat, and carbohydrate?

Beans, nuts, seeds: 1 cup of tofu has 20 grams protein, 10 grams of fat & 4 grams of carbohydrates. All beans, lentils and chickpeas are good sources of protein, as are nuts & seeds. Hemp seeds contain as much protein as any food and it is a "complete" protein. Quinoa is the highest protein grain. Seitan from gluten is also high in protein. See http://www. Vrg. Org/nutrition/protein. Htm for more info.

What to do if I am a 19 year old female. Right now I aim for 50% carbohydrates, 30% fat, and 20% protein. I'm trying to optimize my health, are these ratios good?

What to do if I am a 19 year old female. Right now I aim for 50% carbohydrates, 30% fat, and 20% protein. I'm trying to optimize my health, are these ratios good?

Not really: Your ratios are too high in carbs and fats and not enough protein in your diet. Where are you allowing for your calories from vegetables? You must also consider things like vitamins, minerals. I suggest a sit down with a dietician to clarify what you are aiming for, but 80% of your food should not be carbs and fats.
