9. Beverages

No alcoholic drinks, including beer and wine. Avoid coffee, decaffeinated coffee, regular soft drinks, diet soft drinks, black tea, all fruit flavored teas, and fruit juice.

10. Dairy

Eliminate soymilk, buttermilk, regular milk, sour cream, sweetened yogurt, cottage cheese, and all other types of cheese including cheddar and American cheese.

11. Dried Fruit

Dried fruit is loaded with sugars and candida lives on sugar. This means no raisins, dates, prunes, or apricots.

12. Condiments and Sauces

No ketchup or any type of sauce that contains tomatoes. No dried or powdered garlic, capers, dried or powdered onion, Alfredo sauce, or any type of sauce that might contain vinegar or sugar including A1 Steak sauce, chutneys, flavored vinegars, pickles and sauerkraut. You should also avoid conventional mayonnaise and creamy salad dressings, as these have sugar, vinegar, and milk.

13. Conventional Meats

Factory farmed meats such as chicken, pork, or beef contain hormones and antibiotics and should be avoided. Processed meats need to be eliminated as well, including hot dogs, ham lunch meat, bologna, pepperoni, bacon, salami, and sausage, as these have added sugars to make them tasty.

14. Vegetables

Avoid canned tomatoes, beetroot, carrots, potatoes, cucumber, and mushrooms.

15. Seafood

Almost all fish now contain mercury and other heavy metals. Avoid factory farmed fish.

16. Antibiotics and Other Medications
