yeast

refined and processed foods
moldy foods
dairy (except yogurt and butter on occasion)

Foods to Eat
Lean Meat and Fish 
Eggs

The basic and most successful anti Candida diet should consist of nothing but lean meat, eggs, and low carbohydrate vegetables.

A small amount of whole fruit, nuts and seeds may be acceptable if they don't flare symptoms.

Meats to Include
buffalo

chicken 
beef

lamb

ostrich
pheasant
venison
fish.( be careful because fish is contaminated with mercury and other pollutants- buy Wild Alaskan fish.)
Low Carb Vegetables to Include

cabbage
kale
lettuce
cucumbers
zucchinis
cauliflower
green beans
spinach
any green leafy vegetable is low in carbohydrates
onions
garlic 
green peppers
avocados (are excellent because they are also very good for stabilizing -blood sugar)
tomatoes are low carb but high in acid and often aggravate yeast.  monitor your symptoms to determine whether you should include them in your diet.

High Carb Foods to Avoid or Eat Sparingly
potatoes 
carrots
sweet potatoes 
yams
corn 
beans
winter squash

Grains
Grains should be avoided completely or reserved for special occasions on the Candida diet. Not only are they are highly allergenic and high in carbohydrates, but the human body does not digest them properly. They disrupt the gastrointestinal tract. 
rice
wheat
oats
barley
spelt
rye
corn


Alternate Grains
Kamut
Quinoa
Amaranth
Dairy and Eggs

Yogurt is okay on occasion because it contains healthy bacteria, but it does contain lactose, which is milk sugar, so be careful.
Cheese or cottage cheese should be restricted for special occasions, but they also contain lactose, so must be restricted.
Eggs are a good protein and contain no carbs. 

Legumes or Beans
Legumes, also known as beans are very high in carbohydrates, so they should be eliminated or reduced for most people. 
Like grains, they too are not processed properly by the human body. When you do eat legumes, they should be sprouted when possible, as these are healthier for your GI tract.

Nuts
Some people can include nuts, while other's can't. Nuts are very good for you, so if you can include them in your diet, you should.

However in the beginning phase of the Candida diet they are best avoided or reduced.

Nuts are moldy.  Some of them are also high carbohydrate. 
Cashews are high in carbohydrates.
Macadamia, Almond, Walnut Hazelnut are lower in carbohydrates. Peanuts should be avoided; they are actually a legume, not a nut.
