That makes sense to me. In my own experience, candida comes and goes inside my own body based upon my general state of health and the state of health of specific things such as: if I am sick, recovering from something like illness or dental work, if I have my leaky gut under control or not, if I have any low grade infections (such as gum infections), etc. Eating Sugar can have an exacerbating effect, but it is not the cause of any candida flares I may get. As a difficult to control type 1 diabetic with frequent episodes of high blood sugars as well as lows where I NEED to eat sugar, if Sugar were the main cause, I'd never feel candida free. I am convinced candida has more to do with the health of the body as a whole than anything else. So, yes, Sugar can feed candida, but if there is less candida to feed because the body is generally healthier, then there is less candida feeding off of ANYTHING you may eat.
