Hello, and welcome to the forum.
Your choices for food sources which would not feed the Candida while backpacking are no doubt rather slim. Baking some coconut flour bread and taking it along, eggs and hopefully some green vegetables are your best choices. For snacks I would take fine ground flax seeds and perhaps some almonds and sunflower seeds a as these normally have less mold than other types. You could also take some Granny Smith apples which normally wouldn’t be recommended during the first stage, but in your case exceptions are obviously necessary.
To cut down on other types of foods for the Candida, take along sea salt instead of regular table salt as many times this will contain Dextrose. Check your toothpaste for sugar alcohols as this can feed the Candida just the same as regular sugar will. Avoid white distilled vinegar as well as any condiment which contains distilled vinegar.
Since you’re not going to be able to remain on the diet during the trip, I would start an antifungal supplement to keep the infestation growth at a minimum. Oil of oregano in liquid form would seem suitable for a trip such as you’ll be taking. You may want to try and find a product by the name of Molybdenum which will cut short and lessen the severity of any die-off symptoms that you may experience from the oregano oil. I would not drink anything other than water while on the trip as well, and the more the better.
You’ll no doubt be forced to stray from the diet while on your trip, so in this case all you can do is start all over again whenever you can. However, I don’t see how straying from the diet can cause your Candida to be 10 times worse than it was before. You may be back to where you started from, perhaps a little worse, but 10 times as bad? I doubt it, and the oregano oil may be enough to prevent it from being worse than before as well.
