Detox Diet/ Cleanses liver and candida

Here is one more diet that Pam gave me. I like to begin with this cleans and then live the Yeast Restriction Diet (Candida Diet).

1st Two Weeks:
Meats: Chicken, Turkey, Fish, Canned Tuna/ Sardines, Eggs
          No: Red meat, pork, or dairy

Vegetables: All vegetables except corn
         No: Bottled Salad Dressings. Make you own with lemon, garlic, olive oil, tarragon, vinegar and      

Nuts: All Nuts and Seeds, Almond milk.
          No: Peanuts (re-introducesd under legumes)

Drinks: Lots of Water (1 gallon). Can add lemon or lime to water. V8 juice is ok, or make your own Carrot, Celery juice, or any other Vegetable Juice. Almond Milk.

Weeks 3 & 4:
Add all fruits. Lots of Grapefruits and Berries of all kinds.

Weeks 5 & 6:
Add Legumes (Beans, Peanuts, Peas, Soy/Edamame, and Lentils). Soured milk products        - cottage cheese, yogurt, sour cream & Buttermilk.

After That: Add Cereals, Breads, Pasta. Add one Whole Grain each week: Corn, Brown Rice, Wheat, etc.

After all greains have been reintroduced and accepted or rejected, red meat, regular milk products, and pork may be reintroduced, as long as in moderation.


  • This diet burns up sugar/glycogen stored in the liver. When the liver is full of sugar, it keeps your blood sugar at a level that causes metabolic problems. 
  • This will eliminate sugar cravings. 
  • Do not go hungry. Eat every other hour, if necessary. No calorie counting. If you are full, you will stay away from foods to avoid. 
  • Chew your food 12-30 times. Then you will reach point of satiety slowly, and not by-pass it. Also, saliva will work better on digestion. 
  • Drink fluids before meals (1/2 to 1 hour before or after). Do not dilute digestive juices. 
  • Eat Breakfast as a king, lunch as a queen, and dinner as a pauper. 
  • Snacks - pulse bars (, nuts dried fruits, fresh fruits, carrots, any portable vegetable, protein drinks, sardines in peel back cans, and rice cakes. 
  • Plan ahead, so that you don't get caught hungry around bad food.
