Our expert says:
Candida, which is a fungus, does not slow down metabolism and also does not cause weight gain. It needs to be treated with the correct antifungal medication and probiotics, such as Acidoflora (Lactobacilli), which you can purchase at health shops or from dietitians. The best method of speeding up a sluggish metabolism is to do 30 or more minutes of aerobic exercise every day (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life).
