Some foods, especially acidic foods, interfere with the absorption of oral medications. Grapefruit especially alters the uptake of many drugs. If you’re not taking oral meds though the only thing I can think of is that they would like you to have a lower glucose level to help get rid of the candida (it feeds on glucose in the vag secretions). I wouldn’t worry about it too much; however, intake yogurt with live cultures will help repopulate your gut with beneficial bacteria. Gross as it might sound, a tiny PLAIN yogurt with live cultures applied directly to the area in question (possibly at bedtime, then showered off in the morning) will help to get your vaginal flora back in equilibrium as well.
