Question: I’ve been doing some research on Candida and its connections to other health issues, and I came across some information suggesting a possible link between Candida and diabetes. Can you tell me if it’s recommended that individuals diagnosed with Candida should also be tested for diabetes? I’m curious about this potential connection and whether it’s something I should be concerned about. Thanks for your help!
Not everyone with Candida overgrowth needs to be screened for diabetes. However, recurrent or persistent yeast infections, especially in areas like the genital or oral regions, can be a sign of poorly controlled blood sugars and may warrant a diabetes evaluation. If someone has other risk factors for diabetes or symptoms suggestive of the disease, such as excessive thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, or persistent fatigue, they should consider undergoing a diabetes screening.
Question: I love eating potatoes and I want to know what is the best way to cook it while I am on candida diet?
For those on a Candida cleanse, it’s generally recommended to consume foods that are lower in simple sugars and mold content. We recommend MEVY Diet and for vegetables we suggest staying with the greens but when it comes to potatoes:
|Deep Frying||Avoid||Creates harmful compounds and raises the glycemic index.|
|Boiling or Steaming||Preferred||Retains nutrients and less impact on glycemic index.|
|Consumption Amount||Limit||Potatoes are starchy and break down into sugars.|
|Moldy or Sprouting||Avoid||Sprouts contain solanine. Mold can contribute to Candida overgrowth.|
|Peeling||Recommended||Reduces risk of consuming mold or fungus on the skin, but loses some nutrients and fiber.|
In the context of a Candida cleanse, it’s essential to monitor your body’s response to reintroducing certain foods, including potatoes. If you notice any negative reactions, it might be best to limit or avoid them.
Question: I want to try MEVY Diet but I am vegetarian, how do I adapt it to vegetarian?
Here are some ideas for you to try.
- Meat: Vegetarians can focus on eggs, dairy (if allowed in their diet), legumes, and tofu for protein. Vegans can opt for plant-based protein sources like tofu, tempeh, seitan, lentils, chickpeas, black beans, and various nuts and seeds.
- Eggs: Vegetarians can continue to consume eggs. Vegans can use alternatives like tofu scramble or chickpea flour omelets.
- Vegetables: Both vegetarians and vegans can consume a wide range of non-starchy vegetables which are low in sugars. Examples include leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, bell peppers, and Brussels sprouts.
- Yogurt: Vegetarians can opt for regular yogurt or Greek yogurt (which is higher in protein and lower in sugars). Vegans can go for plant-based yogurts made from almond, coconut, soy, or cashew. However, it’s essential to check the label for added sugars and ensure that it contains live probiotics.
It’s crucial to ensure a balanced intake of nutrients, especially protein, B12, iron, calcium, and omega-3 fatty acids, when adapting the MEVY diet for vegetarian or vegan lifestyles. Supplements might be necessary, especially for strict vegans.
