How different are Kaufmann One and Kaufmann Two? What are the differences? Find out what food you can add on during the Kaufmann Two Diet.

The Kaufmann One Diet is certainly a departure from the way many people are accustom to eating, and by those standards, it certainly seems restrictive. The Kaufmann Diet eliminates many of the foods that are commonly found in people’s diets, including sugar, grains, corn, peanuts, potatoes, and other foods. In lieu of these foods, you are encouraged to eat vegetables, lean meats, eggs, nuts, seeds, limited diary, limited fruits, and healthy fats.

The Kaufmann Diet limits all of these foods that are high in sugar and carbohydrates, because these are the foods that are known to fuel a pathogenic fungal or yeast infection in the body. In the case of corn and peanuts, these are also foods that are commonly contaminated with mold poisons, called mycotoxins, that are known to be detrimental to human health. 

It is generally recommended to stay on The Kaufmann One Diet between 4-6 weeks to see if any health problems you are experiencing clear up. If they do, there is a chance your health problems were somehow related to yeast and or fungi, and your condition may have improved. 

Getting started with the Kaufmann Diet

The Kaufmann Diet is designed to be long-term, however, and it may be time to switch to the less-restrictive version of the diet, Kaufmann Two. The Kaufman Two Diet is designed to be followed long term and includes more foods (although you may stay on Kaufmann One indefinitely, if you so choose). If you begin the Kaufmann Two Diet and your symptoms return, it is probably best to remain on Kaufmann One for a longer period of time. 

So, what is different about Kaufmann Two?

A Little Bit Of Honey

Sugar should still be avoided, but you may add in a little honey from time to time. Manuka honey is best as it has anti-microbial properties. 

More Fruit

The sweeter varieties of fruits should be kept in extreme moderation, but it is now ok to include more fruit in your diet. 

Beans, Sweet Potatoes

Legumes like beans can now be enjoyed, as can sweet potatoes. These are good sources of healthy carbs and fiber. 

A Little Bit Of Cheese

Hard cheeses like parmesan, cheddar, and Swiss cheese can be added into your diet in moderation. 

Oats, Flour Tortillas 

Oats are a good source of fiber and healthy carbs and can be enjoyed moderately. Most wheat products should be avoided––particularly if they use yeast––but foods like flour tortillas can be enjoyed moderately. 

Always Avoid These

Corn, peanuts, and regular potatoes should continue to be avoided. Any type of mushroom, yeast, alcohol, or any other food made with fungus should also be avoided indefinitely. Continue to stay away from sugar in virtually all its forms.
