Greetings. It’s New Zealand naturopath, Eric
Bakker, author of Candida Crusher. Thanks for tuning in. I’m going to talk about weight
loss today and the Candida Crusher diet. So I’ve had a few emails from patients and
also spoken to patients during consultation time that they’re concerned that they’ve lost
weight when they’re on the Candida Crusher diet approach. That’s a worry for some people
losing too much weight. Now for a lot of people watching this, they’ll
be thinking, “Wow, that’s what I want! Weight loss.” Now when you think about it, the ideal
body fat composition for males can be anywhere from 10 to 15 percent and women 15 to 18 percent,
I’d say on average. And lots of us just carry too much body fat. If you don’t really do
much exercise, especially when you get to your 50s like me, you can easily replace muscle
tissue for body fat. And as you increase body fat, you get more tired. You’re going to crave
more sweet foods, and so the weight merry-go-round continues. You just get fatter and fatter,
like a lot of us are too fat, way too fat. If you look at obesity now in the U.S. and
Australian and New Zealand and many other countries, half the population almost are
obese. So if we look at the foods that make us fat, these are often the foods that give
and maintain Candida in people for years on end. These are the sweet foods, the carbohydrates.
These are the foods that people love to eat, cookies, cakes, biscuits, breads, candies,
ice cream, all these sorts of foods that people really like to eat. These are the ones that
will help and encourage a Candida yeast infection to thrive in the body. So by cutting these
foods out, we’re not only going to help reduce our incidence of Candida in our body and all
sorts of intestinal bowel overgrowths or bad bacteria, we’re also going to lose weight.
Isn’t that wonderful to be able to lose weight, maintain good bowel function, and get rid
of Candida all at the same time? This is what the Paleo diet is all about.
The Paleo diet is all about high protein and low carb. This is what the GAPS diet’s all
about. This is what all of these diets are all about, and I’ve been talking like this
for 25 years. This is the right kind of way to eat without even like devising a particular
kind of diet. I’m not a diet kind of person. I really believe that the best approach is
for people looking at the kind of foods that they like to eat and picking out the healthiest
foods of the ones they desire. It’s important for you to bear that in mind
that some foods you like, I don’t like or another person doesn’t like, so devising a
very rigid diet for a person or for a lot of people in general doesn’t work. Because
most people will gravitate back to the foods that they like to eat the most. Well, I can
tell you now, the sweet foods are the ones that are going to help you maintain Candida,
particularly if you have a high stress lifestyle, taking pharmaceutical drugs, and eating at
weird hours and eating incorrectly, not chewing food properly, these sorts of things.
I’ve written about this at length in my book, Candida Crusher. You can read all about this.
Think about it. Weight loss. No Candida. Reducing your risk of the top three, cancer, diabetes,
and heart disease, can all be achieved with this Candida Crusher approach. Meat, eggs,
vegetables and yogurt or the MEVY diet, which has been around now for about 30 or 40 years.
It’s a great way to eat. But I don’t really like to call it a diet. To me, it’s common
sense. Eating healthy is common sense. It’s simple. It’s common sense.
Check out yeastinfection.org and also please don’t forget to have a look at Canxida.com
for the best Candida dietary supplements. Do my yeast infection survey to see if you’re
mild, moderate, or severe and you’ll see that at CandidaCrusher.com.
Thanks for tuning in.
