A modified diet to eliminate Candida can be a strict protocol, forbidding sugar and many other carbohydrate-rich foods. However, dieters often complain that the hardest thing to give up is not junk food, fruit, or alcohol. What many people have the most trouble with is actually reducing their caffeine intake.
There are a number of reasons why you should reduce the amount of coffee and tea that you drink while on the Candida Diet.
Caffeine is one of the items that you definitely should cut back on during your Candida diet. As you know, sugar is the one thing especially to avoid on the Candida Diet – it feeds the yeast in your gut and contributes to Candida overgrowth.
Coffee, or specifically caffeine, complicates the dependence on sugar you’re trying to break.
