I have never had as much energy as I have since I started the candida diet 3 months ago. Like the protocol on the forum, I haven’t had any carbs except those in green and other vegetables. Prior to the diet, I used to feel lethargic all the time and had to push myself to do the most basic things.
I ate normally like most people following the dietary advice that is constantly being given out.
I don’t know about others but even when I am done with Candida I plan to make only minor changes and pretty much eat like this for the rest of my life.
Do you really thing the carbohydrates are which cause your fatigue or lack of energy ??
The carbohydrates aren’t responsible if you have fermentation in the gut. It is a problem you have. Candida overgrowth or bacterial overgrowth, both, respond to a low carbohydrate diet. If you correct the problem, the carbohydrates will give you more energy that what you have now.

Of course, If you have an intestinal overgrowth or fermentation in the gut caused by bacterias, and at the same time you are feeding it with carbohydrates, there will be more toxic wastes and by-products that are responsible for the fatigue you feel. It isn’t the carbohydrates but what candida or bacterias are producing !!!
