Twenty-first century living is causing a candida overgrowth epidemic. The overuse of antibiotics, medication and stimulants accompanied by a bad diet is resulting in obesity and health problems. Regular diets, potions and pills do not address candida-causes-and-candida-symptoms. To eliminate a candida overgrowth and the problems it causes you need to follow a candida diet which starves the candida but gives your body optimum nutrition.

If you want to make 2011 the year you take your weight and health in hand, why not try out the Fed Up Boating candida diet.

Like with any diet an important part of success is pre-planning. Take the next two weeks, using the following steps to preparing your mind and cupboards to support your candida diet.

1. It’s important to find out if you have a candida overgrowth or if your problems are caused by something else. There are lots of different candida tests available, some are free and some take time and money. Visit candida-tests for more information.

2. You need to decided if you really want to diet, or if you just feel you should because....If you don’t find your motive and will power forget it, you won’t last a week.

3. Next you need to eliminate temptation by using up or giving away all the naughty foods in the house, including frozen foods. If it’s not there you can’t eat it at weak moments.

4. If you have any medical conditions, seek the advice of a doctor or nutritionist before starting the diet.

5. Ask a friend or family member to do the diet with you so you can help, inspire and support each other, plus a bit of friendly competition will definitely help.

6. Tell everyone what you are doing and why, and what you expect from them in the way of support.
