I have cut out ALL starch and sugar and can safely say I am down to about 50-80 carbs per day. My energy is getting better but I had burning hands, little cuts on my lips crease, very dry mouth and some constipation.

I made the most delish chickpea carob cupcakes last week and I thought I found my dream sugar in INULIN, but having only eaten 1/2 cupcake per day, I’ve been feeling gassy and bloated. Then I read a post on here saying to stay away 🙁

Can someone please tell me if there is any SUGAR SUB I can cook with that will not feed candida? Xylitol? STEVIA?
ANYTHING?! HELP!

Xylitol and the other “tol’s” are not friendly to gut flora and can cause diarrhea. I know from experience.

Stevia is likely the safest IMO. But I don’t care for the taste personally.
