candida die-off symptoms?

I am posting this question hoping somebody else has experienced candida die-off symptoms and will recognise these:

I have been taking supplements for a week to treat a suspected candida infection. The first few days, my only symptoms were urinating more frequently, as well as diarrhea.

In the past few days, I have experienced something I have never experienced before. Not sure if it's related, though, but I cannot find any other possible explanation.

For the past few days, I have been unable to drink coffee. Both the taste and the smell are nauseating to me (no, I am 100% sure I am not pregnant). I also cannot eat meat; whether it's chicken, pork, or beef, the very idea of eating it is disgusting to me.

On the other hand, I have found myself craving foods that I have not eaten since childhood, like fish fingers and mashed potatoes.

What surprises me most of all is that I no longer want carbonated water, something I usually drink on a daily basis.

Is there any chance this could be related to candida die-off???

The only other thing that has changed in the past couple of weeks is that I have started taking AD Cytozyme (2 pills each morning with breakfast).

I can't really answer your questions, but am currently on an anti-candida diet recommended by a private nutritionist, which appears to be helping immeasurably. Coffee is one of the things that she said I needed to stop , although I was only having one a day. Maybe you not wanting coffee is your body's way of letting you know you shouldn't have it? I have no idea, just a thought.
