I found that if I ate eggs, organic bacon without the sugar sprayed on it, and a couple pieces of organic sausage (without sugar added), and ate fatty pieces of meat and such carb restrictions were not so bad. Make soups, and get creative. Make hummus and use lots of garlic. You’ll be surprised how many good meals you can make without sugar or high starchy/gluten foods and you’ll maintain your weight. These foods heal your gut lining as well. Bone broths are really good for this as well for healing leaky gut if that is something you have, which most Candida sufferers do.
