Phil, I’m still not 100% convinced that your weakness and fatigue are caused by the lack of carbs. The human body (any size) can adapt to a no-carb diet in a much shorter period of time than eight weeks. I’m 6’ 2” and after about 6 weeks on the diet, my body had completely adapted to the no-carb diet, and I literally didn’t need the carbs any longer. Of course, I was reducing the infestation by huge numbers the entire time by taking larger amounts of antifungals and probiotics, taking a chance on strong die-off symptoms, which I don’t advise anyone else to attempt. I’m still basically carb-free today with no fatigue, hunger, or weakness of any type (gym workout and tennis 3 to 4 times a week).
It seems that by now your doctor would have explained to you that one of the most common symptoms of a Candida albicans infestation is incapacitating fatigue brought on by the fact that the Candida drains us of both energy and stamina, not to mention that the body is using all the energy it can manage to take care of the body’s needs during that time. I’m not saying that the fatigue is not at least partly due to the new way of eating, but I do believe most of it is being caused by the Candida.
I think that in time, as you lower the numbers of the infestation, you will not feel the fatigue to nearly the extreme that you are now, even if you remain on the diet.
