Really interesting! I would like to point out, however, that the anti-candida diet, including the strict one a lot of forum folks follow, is not inherently LOW carb, just lowER carb. If you are eating a bunch of veggies, and esp. once you can add in buckwheat or oat bran, there are plenty of carbs available. When I was tracking my food back in my first couple of months, I was averaging about 130g-150g a day, depending on how much buckwheat etc I was having. Low carb diets, I believe, are 50g a day or less.

The anti-candida diet is just low sugar and starch. We should definitely not be doing nasty meat-gorging, Atkins style :p Ugh.
