Many fish because of their mercury and heavy metal content is excluded from the Candida diet. This is particularly true for the largest fish, i.e. those at the top of the food chain, which spends their whole lives absorbing the toxins and eating small organisms that they carry. The non-toxic fish that feature on the foods to eat list include sardines, anchovies, wild salmon, and herring. The fish you should be avoiding include swordfish and tuna. Read Here
