Yes I’ve had that experience too; Seemed like I was just destroying muscle the more I trained, and at some point I got so weak I had trouble just walking. My legs were shaking uncontrollably after having walked for 5 minutes. I also got chronically constipated which does not help overcoming Candida. And very dry eyes and lips too. I had no idea why, but I guess now, having read Javizy’s answer, I know…
The video is interesting. I’ve listened to this guy before as he bases a lot on Ray Peat who’s researching cellular metabolism (and this is particularly interesting for some one like me with hypothyroidism). It does make sense that if we work out and therefore demand more from the body, then we should also give it more food to cope with this strain. Not expect more from it while giving it less. Getting enough calories/fuel on Candida diet is alreday difficult. I actually decided to stop exercising while on this strict diet, simply because I know I will have to conserve my energy or else I will just destroy myself. It actually upsets me when people offer “exercise more, eat less” as one size fits all remedy to everything. It is very individual what a person needs to heal and feel better. While for a healthy person working out might be just the thing to pick them up, for someone with an illness it may simply be too demanding for their body and the result is counterproductive. Candida diet and protocoll is tough and you will need to support and nourish your body while on it.
Besides, if you take a break from working out now does not mean you will never do it again. Once you are better you’ll get back into it. This condition does not have to define you or determine your future.
Or maybe you simply need to modify how you work out? Shorter, less intense or simply do something else, take walks for example. I do believe some movement is helpful as long as it is not too strenuous.
