On top of the problems with ketosis I mentioned, it seems that stress hormones can end up chronically elevated due to their role in gluconeogensis (making glucose from fat (glycerol) & protein). My mind has been a bit overactive for quite a while, so maybe this has been playing a role.

The carbs that are probably better are those that are digested and absorbed in the upper intestinal part. The secret to win this infection is to target the colon. It is there where the biggest fungal presence is.
What sort of carbs do you eat? Easily digested ones absorbed in the small intestine are starting to make a lot of sense. Raster has mentioned eating sweet potatoes and even regular potatoes and rice without issues. Apples, yoghurt and the starches mentioned are on the allowed list. You talked about that doctor who recommended fruit before too.
I haven’t seen anyone explain the role of carbs though. I just had the idea that sugar and starch = bad and have been avoiding them as much as possible. If you eat starch in such a way that you don’t spike blood sugar (restricted amount, low GL meal) and you don’t eat enough to overshoot glycogen stores, it seems to be beneficial as long as it doesn’t reach the colon. Keeping glycogen topped up seems to be the best way to support the immune system and minimise glucose available to candida. When people say “eat fruit, rice etc” they don’t explain this stuff and it just sounds crazy, but maybe there’s some logic to it.
