Use Smart Balance's Omega-3 cooking oils and butter spreads, regardless of what kind of diet you are on. They will help lower your cholesterol and promote healthy weight.
The one thing you want to avoid on a candida diet is refined foods, sugar, sweet fruits and simple carbs. And avoid things that have a lot of acid in them . No apples, no pears, no oranges, no melons or grapes, but grapefruit is ok.
Eat lots of broccoli and green leafy veggies to bring your ph-level down. Steamed soy beans (edamame) are excellent, but not sugary soy milk. You can find unsweeted soymilk and add a quality all-natural sugar substitute to that (like Stevia or Xylitol).
Definitely avoid alcohol. It will wreck your ph-balance. After the diet is over, you can go toward having a glass of red wine a week and then after two weeks, a glass of red wine every other day. This amount of alcohol is actually health-promoting.
Oh, and avoid artificial sweeteners in general. They cause cancer. Most even say so on the box!
