I don’t think you’ll be able to heal the restless leg syndrome from the candida diet from my experience…I’ve been on the diet for a year and it hasn’t gone away or improved whatsoever. The way I look at it, I have a fast metabolism and maybe thats whats causing it. Either way, I don’t think its candida.

I take a homeopathic called zincum metallicum which completely reduces this problem; my legs don’t wake up feeling so tired and my bed sheets stay on my bed a little better. In general, I feel more rested when I take it and it completely reduces this problem.

As far as working out on the diet; working out can suppress the immune system (like smoking or doing drugs) and that is something you won’t want to do on the diet. I would consider taking a break for a month or two until the die-off is over…because the biggest thing you need while recovering is lots of rest! I could barely even handle doing yardwork while on going through die-off and any activity can be very draining. Light walks or riding a bike might be OK, but I wouldn’t do any rigorous activity.

You also likely aren’t progressing as much as you’d like because you are eating foods that you shouldn’t have on the diet such as quinoa and almonds. Quinoa is very high in starch and can feed candida; its about as bad as brown rice. Almonds contain molds which feed candida which is a fungus. Oat bran and buckwheat are good sources of carbs, but like I said, I wouldn’t be so focused on working out while trying to heal your immune system.
