I know that you'd like me to say that it's fine to start back on those foods, but the truth is, to deal with the imbalance in your body that allowed the yeast overgrowth in the first place, it can take months and months. The Candida diet really isn't just to be followed when you're doing a cleanse, it's a terrific basis for an eating plan regularly.
Candida and "bad" bacteria love sugary fruits even more than you do. Stimulates their growth like crazy.
I understand that in your mind, there's no solution, no way to find foods to eat that will promote health. That's a pretty odd reality, actually – that you're in school to learn and you're supposed to function on sub-optimal food. Vegetables are a well respected part of anyone's diet these days.
As a study, I'd like to invite you to join Brenda Watson's Community here - http://bit.ly/rXcAmw. It's free, and you can search through years of questions other people have posted (lots of Candida info). You can also post your own.
As you noticed, CandiGone is to be taken along with dietary shift. CandiGone alone won't handle your yeast issue if the foods you eat are just producing more and more yeast. Diet is 80% of any digestive issue.
I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful, but the truth is – eating sugary foods (even sweet fruits), processed foods, and refined foods just isn't good for anyone's health. The gluten issue is one that is so prevalent that it just makes sense to avoid gluten if you have any digestive disturbance at all.
If you have specific health issues, be sure to "Ask Brenda Watson" in her Community.

I've been using CandiGone for about 3 weeks now at full strength. I've been very good with my diet; no fruits, dairy, sugar, or gluten. Tomorrow, however, I'm starting college and there is no way I can keep up this diet. It'll probably be fairly easy for me to not eat sugar from candy and cookies and stuff, and I stay away from dairy anyway because of my acne, although it's going to be almost impossible to not eat gluten, as gluten is in almost everything. I also love fruit and since there aren't many vegetables at my college, I really want to start eating fruit again. What should I do about my diet? Is it ok to start eating the banned foods? I kinda have no other choice. How long should I be taking candigone and how long will it take for all the yeast to be gone?
