“Canidia Cleanses” and “Candida Diets” do not work. They are fad diets. To lose candida you must completely change your eating habits and your eating lifestyle. That includes eliminating all caffeinated and sugar beverages including orange juice and apple juice. No dairy, no pasta, no grains, no gmos NO ALCOHOL and NO CAFFINE; ever.
Once you understand the causes of candida overgrowth, then you’ll know why you must change your eating lifestyle from “LIVING TO EAT to EATING TO LIVE”.
Most of my life I struggled with eating disorders and weight issues. I had all the Eating Disorders including Anorexia, Bulimia, Exercisearexia and I used to overuse Laxatives and diuretics. I never wanted to wear a swimsuit or get naked. I felt very self conscious about my body. I tried so many fad diets and lifestyles like Vegan and Vegetarian. Nothing seemed to ever work for me till now.
I became a Vegan when I was 12. I did that for about 5 years and Vegetarian for about 5 years. After I was Vegan, my weight sky rocketed. So eventually, I went back to eating meat. It’s very important to get your protein from real organic meat. The artificial meats are all genetically modified. They were created in a lab as a substitute for real meat. They do not come from nature. Most are made with proteins like Gluten or Gluten like substances. Those have all kinds of health issues and make you fat and hungry all the time. Organic foods from nature are the only way to go.
If you are a Vegan or vegetarian and you eat only organic things from nature, it might work out for you. But if you are eating foods that have been created by Science in a lab, then that’s going to lead to health problems and weight gain.
They had not done enough studies when they first started experimenting with food and creating all these meat alternatives or artificial foods. Now about 40 years later we are starting to see the side effects. People are getting bigger and fatter, have more diseases, more depressed and feeling less confident then ever before.
I never felt good about my body. Now at 33 years old, I finally do. How did I do it? I started eating all Organics, GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Caffeine Free, Alcohol Free, Low Sugar, and High protein. No processed or packaged foods. I make everything homemade and with all Organics. This seems like a long list, but all it is, is the way our ancestors used to eat.
Ever since they started modifying our food and adding sugar to everything, society has gotten larger and had more health problems and diseases. Most diseases are directly correlated to your diet. You can even cure cancer when you don’t consume all this conventional garbage and sugar. Cancer, Candida and organisms that are harmful to your health, live on sugar. Cut out the sugar, the harmful organisms die and cannot grow through your body.
JediRich’s father John died from Cancer. Unfortunately his doctor advised him to eat an all sugar diet when they discovered the cancer. Which made the cancer flourish. His father only lasted for 5 years once the doctor switched him to an all sugar diet. He got sicker and sicker. I wish he could have known at the time, what we know now. It would have cured his cancer. Instead within 5 years he went from bad to worse and the cancer had a frenzy with the sugar content he was consuming.
One of the last things he said to JediRich is stop eating Gluten. On his death bed he had clarity that Gluten was an issue. This is what set my research off in motion. I thought there must be an important reason why that was the last advice JediRich’s dad gave him. I started looking into all the food issues with our current society. I scoured the Internet. I tried and failed at taking some things out of our diet, till I finally came up with what I now do. I have never felt this good in my entire life. Thank you John Lightowler for saving mine and JediRich’s lives in your last words of advice while you were living. It changed our lives forever.
Obesity has become a huge problem all over the world, especially the US. I hear all the time about restrictions and diets and new exercise techniques to lose weight every day. These quick fix fad diets never work because it’s the food that’s the problem. It’s not a self control problem or a calorie problem or a laziness problem.
The problem is conventional food makes you fat...bottom line. People compensate by starving themselves or over working out. They act like if people are fat because they only eat cookies all day. Most people are generally trying to watch what they eat. It has become unfair to society, what used to be considered healthy, no longer is.
Organic is the way food used to be. Conventional is not healthy. That’s why everyone is struggling with keeping fit and trim. Organics are the key. I am telling you from empirical evidence. Meaning I have done trial and error to figure out what is the key to feeling good and being fit and healthy with light exercise. I rarely do any super strenuous exercise and I still stay thin and fit eating Organics and consuming cannabis.
Cannabis is extremely helpful for weight loss and weight management as well. Most people assume cannabis gives them the munchies. Why that occurs is most of us are undernourished due to not getting our proper nutrition due to the conventional options. Once you eat Organics and Cannabis then you will find that Cannabis takes away the anxiety of food.
I used to obsess about food constantly. Cannabis relaxes your anxiety, which makes you less hungry. A lot of what we think is hunger, is just anxiety or even habit. We think we are hungry because it is the time you usually eat. Next time you go to eat due to routine. Ask yourself if you are really hungry now or is your body in the routine or habit of eating. Cannabis helps with bringing down your anxiety, so you can validly determine if you are actually hungry or eating out of habit or depression.
I highly recommend if you live in a state that cannabis is legal to try some. The worst thing that ever occurs from getting too stoned is you go to sleep. Give it a try and you will see what I mean.
I first starting consuming cannabis in 2016. Prior to that, I always thought it would make me fat, sluggish and lazy. Instead the exact opposite occurred. I lost weight, I became more creative and active. JediRich and I have never been happier since we started consuming cannabis and Organics.
Exercise should be for health not for losing weight or being able to eat more. Compensating for overeating by exercising is tough on all your body especially your organs.
People have had to exercise to stay thin since they started messing with the food supply and adding sugar and GMOs to everything. Gyms became popular in the 80s when they started changing the food.
Now people have to overexercise for the food they eat. If you are doing this then this is an Eating Disorder as well. It’s called ExerciseArexia. It’s a version of Anorexia, but instead of not eating, people overeat and use exercise to avoid getting fat. It’s a bad road to go down. It ages you faster and puts a ton of unnecessary strain on your body.
I grew up very religious. I no longer am. What irritates me about these Christians now, is that they say and live by things that are not even in their Bible. It doesn’t matter to me what they believe, but if you are going to quote something, get your facts right. These Christians do not even know what their own book they live by says. I know the Bible well. My parents went to Bible college and I went to Christian school my whole life. I don’t agree with the Bible, but I would say half the crap they are regurgitating from their pastors is not even in the book. The Bible is Lost in Translation, but somehow they take it word for word. It boggles my brain. I don’t understand how they don’t understand this.
I suffered from eating disorders most of my life. I just recovered from Candida Overgrowth this week. In order to feel good and healthy and fit. It’s super important to eat organics, dairy free, gluten free, GMO free, caffeine free, alcohol free and low sugar in order to feel great and lose weight.
JediRich and I eat organic beef, organic garlic, organic collard greens, organic tomatoes, organic apples, organic almonds, organic bananas, organic avocados and organic grapefruit and that’s it. For every meal we do some sort of combo of those ingredients. Those are the only ingredients we ever use. We only drink water for beverages. We eat the way our ancestors used to eat before they started messing with our food.
This may seem like a strict diet, but it’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. If you eat simple organic home cooked ingredients, you will feel great and lose weight. Eating this way gets rid of tons of diseases, disorders and Candida Overgrowth.
Candida Overgrowth is a huge issue right now due to the current climate of our food industry. It’s super important if you are suffering from Candida Overgrowth to eat all Organics, GMO Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Low Sugar, Alcohol Free and Caffeine Free.
Here is a list of some common Candida Overgrowth Symptoms:
—Digestive Issues, including bloating, constipation, gas
—Intense Sugar and Salt Cravings
—Weak Immune System
—Sinus infections, Post Nasal Drip
These are just some of the symptoms of Candida Overgrowth. It lowers your immunity, so it ends up affecting all of your body. Most diseases can be connected to yeast overgrowth problems. Stay tuned for more information on Candida in the coming weeks.
Candida Overgrowth is one of the leading causes of depression. Candida control your brain and tell you that you are still hungry and craving sugar and salt. It’s a vicious cycle because they then take your nutrients and you are left lethargic and sluggish. You feel sick everyday and you cannot keep your weight managed. It’s a continual up and down emotional cycle which causes people to feel like killing themselves.
This is what happened to my mom. She had Candida Overgrowth from years of eating sugar and gmos. You have to cut out GMOs, gluten, dairy, caffeine, alcohol and eat all organics. Otherwise you will live with Candida Overgrowth forever and you will always struggle with your weight. Getting your Candida under control is the key to health and staying thin and fit.
I will be working on a Candida cookbook for tips on what to eat to cure your Candida Overgrowth and get back to feeling good again or for the first time.
I just recovered from Candida Overgrowth. Candida is a yeast. We all have Candida in our body naturally. If you eat a diet high in sugar, or GMOs or processed foods or have an eating disorder you can get an Overgrowth or imbalance of Candida.
What happens when you get an Overgrowth is you get some nasty symptoms. Some of those symptoms include insane bloating, lethargy, weight gain, trouble digesting, flu like symptoms, headaches, etc. Your whole being just feels sick and off.
Candida live in your fat cells and live off of sugar. In order to get your body back in balance, you have to cut back on the sugar and fat. I was bulimic for 15 years, so I got a huge Candida Overgrowth problem in my stomach. I had to go extreme by eating only Organic beef and bone broth for a month and a half. I was so sick for the last month and a half. I am finally feeling better and my stomach is back in check.
JediRich is still struggling with the Candida, because he’s a couple days behind me. I keep telling him it will all pass soon. It is like night and day when you finally feel better.
If you have ever eaten a lot of processed food, sugary foods, lots of caffeine, gluten, consumed a lot of beer or had an eating disorder, then you could be struggling from Candida Overgrowth as well. The big issue with Candida is that it is similar to a tape worm, except it makes you fat. This is because the Candida tells your brain to keep eating sugary, salty and fatty foods. You never feel full even when you are boated, you feel so hungry.
It’s a nasty thing to have. If you think you might be struggling switch to Organics, No GMO, No Gluten, No Dairy, No Caffeine, No Alcohol and low sugar and low fat. Definitely avoid beer. Beer is made with yeast that contributes to a yeast Overgrowth.
