    I had some problems with drinking plain water in the past. I get sick of drinking water, and I figured since herbal tea doesn't have caffeine, that it counts too. Also water with a small amount of lemon juice is a great replacement for over sugared drinks. Worked for my brother who is really a sugar addict.

    Actually, a small update. I decided to talk about this with my doc last week and she got me thinking:  The original study, as I understand it, suggested that 2 litres of water a day were the typical baseline requirement. But it was not suggesting this water had to be consumed as a beverage or that without flavoring, etc. It included water contained in all food and drinks. I have always thought that it doesn't count as water, but well, according to my do it is.

    Recently i know a important thing about from a page(read) that It quenches our thirst and hydrates our body.

    Also back to this, it is carbonic acid! No, it is not really good for consumption. In moderation, though, it should be harmless. But guess that's another reason why it shouldn't be used as a replacement for, well, regular water.

    But i also love sparking water. My personal favorite is  Perrier Carbonated Mineral Water.

    Overconsumption of sparkling water can lead to irritated bowel syndrome (IBS), So be aware of it.

     

    Lucky you. I just don't like the taste. In the other thread I wrote about water with a small amount of salt which I make to keep my sodium balance at bay. It doesn't work for me if I try to drink sparkling water. For some unknown reason. 

    And I'd be more worried about any additional minerals.

    Sweet potatoes are definitely out on an anti-Candida diet. Personally if I were aware my main issue is candida overgrowth, I would do the candida diet, rather than W30 (or after- but doing them at the same time would be very limiting). Disclaimer- I am not an expert, just someone curious about this subject and working on it for myself. The two diets are similar in eliminating all added sugars, bread, white rice, and most dairy. However candida diet allows plain yogurt (probiotic), butter, and pseudo-grains like millet and quinoa, while eliminating most fruits and starchy veggies like potatoes- it's all about eliminating what feeds the overgrowth. There are also various stages of the candida diet, starting more strict then gradually allowing more fruits, etc. I haven't tried it personally but am trying whole 30 instead for now, since my symptoms aren't clearly a candida issue, but I'm considering trying candida diet next, as a comparison. Layering both diets at once, like you said, might result in an overly limited diet without enough options to stay fed, I would think.

    By the way, congrats on doing ANY kind of no-sugar diet, coming from serious sugar addiction! That's gotta be a rough transition. I'm about a year and half into a no refined sugar rule, (with Nov/Dec holiday exceptions), and it's the best decision I've made for my diet. It's easy enough to follow, especially when I allow natural sweeteners like honey, and it keeps me away from all the candies and donuts, impulsive food choices and processed foods with added sugar. It's the world's simplest diet and makes a big difference. 

    Thanks. It was always a tricky part to me since, well, I wanted to ask - the main recommendation for anti-candida diet is to consume more yogurt and such products (at least, that's what my OB-GYN said). On my program (near day 17) I'm feeling itchy even though I'm staying out of sugar and all natural sweeteners.
    Should I add a cheat-day to W30 program with plain yogurt to keep my microflora safe and sound or that's strictly prohibited? Maybe there are other options? I know this is not a place for a medical advice, so I wanted to ask how do you deal with this?

    I was having the same dull headaches everyone is posting about starting on Day 12-15.  I’ve been working out the same as before Whole 30.  Just drank some compliant pickle juice to see if salt was the issue and the headache went away almost immediately. You could also do a salt tablet. 

    Twice this. Got these headaches on day 13, thought it might be migraine but pickle juice was a pure miracle. If you don't have pickle juice or a tablet, slightly salted water might help as well. 

    Never underestimate a hyponatremia (when you don't get enough sodium). Drinking water is important, but if you have changed your habits significantly it might destroy your water-salt balance (that's what happened to me - resulted in headaches).
