For sure, when you cut the carbohydrates, you start to kill candida but you also feel very bad because of die-off. If Candida is spread everywhere in your tissue, it can take years. Consequently, the low carb diet is the ONLY diet to recover from candidiasis.
By the way, it is a good opportunity to tell you that a fruit diet is a very bad idea. In fact, fruits are full of carbs just like sweets. The vast majority of fruits aren’t good.
Starchy food can also be a problem. Strangely enough i have witnessed that they aren’t all the same. Potatoes were better than rice. In fact, after eating a reasonable number of fries or potatoes i didn’t feel anything special. I eat sometimes potatoes. On the other hand, rice brought me the same effect as high carb foods. I have also found that brown rice was not better than white rice.
My low carb diet:
- No rice
- No bread
- No sweets
- No honey
- No cakes
- No fruits
- No fruit juices
I break sometimes the low carb diet without excess. I eat 2 cakes every week.
One or two meals a day rather than three meals a day:
I have discovered that 24 hours cycle was very important to Candida because i could feel my nose sneezing after more than 8 hours without eating. Also i have felt bowel movements long after eating. I think it also help to remain a low blood sugar. Below, you can see the blood sugar trend for a day with 3 meals. So, i thought, it would be better to have only one peak. I came to this conclusion after my bad experience with water fasting.
So i have decided to put all my meal together. To my surprise, the digestion didn’t cause anything worst than before. Nevertheless, i had to constantly think about something else in order to avoid nibbling even if i ate a lot during my daily meal. On top of that, i have observed that nibbling has a very bad impact on candida cure whatever i ate.
Exception – When i suspended the low carbohydrate diet:
I must say that at the beginning of the candida crisis, i felt so weak & i craved so much for food that i had to eat something with some carbs in it. So, sometimes, when i could not stand it anymore, i eat some food with carbohydrates in it.
it is always good to keep some foods with a medium amount of carbohydrates in it somewhere in your house in case of emergency. it can be a bowl of pastas, some chocolate, smashed potatoes, some kiwis (easy to eat)..etc..etc….
i have found that It was useless to hurt yourself and go beyond your limits. When i felt that i could not stand it anymore, rather than waiting, i have decided to prepare one of the foods i mentioned before.
