Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Kaufmann 1 Diet restricts many of the foods most people eat every day. These foods include breads, pasta, potatoes, corn and corn products. Finding ways to fill that void can be difficult, but while the Kaufmann 1 Diet is restrictive, many people are introduced to foods they would have never eaten before. Many of these are nutrient-dense foods that promote health while aiding in starving a pathogenic candida or fungal infection. Many, if not all of them, are delicious, too!

Many foods simply won’t aid in candida or fungal infection, by their nature. These are foods like meats, which are primarily protein and fat. These can help towards starving a pathogenic fungal infection. While these are great foods to have in your diet, there are other certain foods that are active fungus-fighters, with nutrients that actually work towards killing fungus. Listed below are some potent fungus fighters that you can include every day in your Kaufmann 1 Diet!
