Is this an appropriate diet?

I have a Candida infestation which was diagnosed by my doctor. He gave me a diet of foods to eat which has blueberries, lemons, limes and apples listed as foods to eat, but I’ve read on some websites that you should limit your fruit intake to only two servings a week. Is this correct? Is this correct? Should you have more or less?

I’ve looked at a lot of different Candida diets over the past several years, both in books as well as on the Internet, and I’ve seen several diets which recommended either one or more of the fruits; cantaloupe, kiwis, apples, and various types of berries. The fact is most fruit contains fructose, and fructose is a form of sugar not very different from any other form of sugar; and this is especially true when a Candida infestation is the problem you’re treating. Experiments have shown that Candida do not react in a strong positive way to a combination of fat and glucose; on the other hand they react very positively to a combination of fat and fructose. This is enough proof to tell you that Candida can feed on fructose. When you have a Candida albicans infestation, any time you feed the Candida high carbohydrate foods or any form of sugar, this action will always stall your progress on a diet, and you’re taking the chance of increasing the population of the Candida infestation.

The only acceptable fruit on a good Candida diet are lemons and limes from which you can make fruit drinks, but no sugar of course.
