Hello, Tom.

I have completed two weeks of an extremely low carb and sugar free diet. Only eating organic eggs, broccoli, chicken, and taking a few antifungals.
The main question is, why am I NOT hungry?

And is this a good sign or bad sign?

My gassy and bloated feelings have been gone for at least a week. It’s been about three days since I last felt brain fog. In fact, my head feels more clear than probably ever which is nice.

I would say it’s a good sign. Most people with somewhat severe Candida infestations are still starving within two weeks on the diet.

On one hand, I would expect the candida to be making me feel like I’m starving. On the other hand, I wonder if something is wrong with my digestive system that I can’t get hungry. The fact that the bloating is gone is also a good sign as long as the disappearance of brain fog.
Is it now safe to say that the diet is working?

I believe the diet is working for you. I assume you’re not taking probiotics yet, is that correct? Since you’re experiencing next to zero symptoms right now, if I were you I’d go ahead and add a good probiotic.

Are you in the US? If so, try to find one of these probiotics and start taking one a day the first thing in the morning or the last thing at night on an empty stomach. Don’t take any antifungals within a couple of hours of taking the probiotic. Be sure to drink water after taking the capsule.

If you decide to choose your own probiotic, always be sure to get one with Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 bacteria and 14 different strains.
