During Dr. McCombs’ Candida Plan you can eat from the “Yes Foods” and you need to avoid the “No Foods”. Starting from Week 9 on the plan, you can start adding back-in certain foods; however, our recommendation is to add in only those foods that work for your body.

If you are eating foods that do not work well with your body you are likely to experience: bloating, flatulence, fatigue, headaches, skin eruptions, and other symptoms.
