I can’t believe that 6 weeks ago I started my journey. It’s not over yet, but it’s incredible to think how I’ve made it 6 weeks! Before starting this candida cleanse I would always laugh at the joke: “candida cleanse is a CAN’T EAT IT diet” and thoroughly agreed with it. But I’ve successfully plowed through 6 weeks of it, and still going strong. This is a testament to just how strong we are, and there is always doubt on being able to accomplish something until we accomplish it. So I’m going to take this moment to say that if you have ever thought about doing anything, may it be sticking to a certain way of eating or making a monumental life change, you are strong enough to accomplish it so don’t let doubt get in the way! #PREACH
Now that I’m done preaching, let me get on with the awaited update. Much to the same of last week, I continued to experience my 3 major benefits:
- Weight loss
- No need to snack
- Minimized cravings
If you want to read about this in more detail check out my post on Week 5.
As I reflected on this previous week, I realized that as much as being disciplined and strong enough to stick to the candida cleanse was important, what really helped me achieve these benefits was being empowered with the proper knowledge. Without the proper knowledge I could be following the rules to the T, but still not see results because I wouldn’t be following the right thing!
So what I really wanted to do for you this week, was to put together a quick 1 pager (back and front), that you can refer to if you are thinking of going on a candida cleanse. Even though, there are good resources on the internet, I find the information is scattered and I found myself flipping from various websites and books to hone in on central concepts! In the hopes to save you time and confusion I took the time to create this Candida be gone Cheat sheet.
Print this cheat sheet out and stick it on your fridge. It was be a great resource to reference before starting your meal prep or meals.
I also added a section on lifestyle and non food related practises. The reason for this is because we are more than what we eat, and our daily thoughts, and activities have an impact on our outcomes. I’ve listed out some of the most beneficial and important practises to try. You don’t have to stick to all of them as this maybe daunting, but choosing 1-2 will help you recover with more ease. I would highly suggest that if you are working on 1-2 practises, that you will 100% incorporate the very last practise under the “lifestyle” heading. I feel as this one was the most beneficial practise and was one of the main reasons why I could stick to this plan for 6 weeks!
Let me know your thoughts on the Candida be Gone Cheat sheet, and if you found it helpful in your journey!
