Hi! I'm probably the one teenager on this site, but I joined because I hope to get the advice of a community like this that's going through the same thing I am.
I have a Candida overgrowth (likely from a round of antibiotics), that was diagnosed about a week ago. My doctor told me to go ahead and start my antifungals right away and to start the candida diet after the holidays. I decided to just go ahead and start on the 26th because I wanted to get used to it before winter break ends. I jumped in without doing the cleanse (I wasn't told to do so/not do so, so my mom and I chose to skip it)... I'm not sure if that was the right move, but I can't really take it back now.
I have a really fast metabolism and lose weight easily, so I'm trying to find foods that will help me (besides avocados and approved nuts because I'm already utilizing them ^^). I'm lucky because I already went dairy free (my choice) and usually gluten free (mom's choice for dinners + luck of the draw).
I wanted to ask specifically for
1. ideas for cooking candida approved for families when you have younger kids/teens. (No need to worry about pickiness, because I'm mature enough to realize that this is for my health; plus, beggars can't be choosers.)
2. foods that are high calorie/weight boosting.
3. Any other tips you want to throw at me!
Thanks for your time!
