    I’m now having bad fatigue after I eat any grain (teff, and buckwheat for sure). Seems like it’s a blood sugar drop. Not sure why I’ve become so sensitive other than the fact that I hardly ever eat carbs anymore.

    Then I found this (silly?) thing on the web:

    Excess fat is the culprit in candida, not sugar, per se. When fat levels in the blood rise, so does blood sugar, because excess fat inhibits insulin from performing its function of escorting sugar out of the bloodstream. The excess fat lines the blood vessel walls, the cells’ insulin receptor sites, the sugar molecules themselves, and the insulin with a thin coating of fat, thus blocking and inhibiting normal metabolic activity. Too much sugar in the blood is as life threatening as too little and can result in serious illness or death. Yeast, or candida, is a constant presence in the blood; it serves as a life preservation mechanism, blooming when there is an excess of sugar in the blood stream to bring blood sugar down to a non-threatening level. When the sugar is distributed and used by the cells of the body, the yeast quickly dies off as it is supposed to. If fat levels stay chronically high due to a poor diet, sugar will remain in the bloodstream and feed the large candida colonies instead of feeding the 18 trillion cells of your body. Starved for fuel, these cells can no longer metabolize energy, and you become tired, and feel rundown. Because all carbohydrate, fat, and protein that we eat is converted to simple sugar (glucose) if it is to be used by the cells for fuel, the way out of this cycle is not to eat less sugar, but to consume less fat. When fat levels drop, the sugar starts to get processed and distributed again, and the yeast levels drop because there is no longer excess sugar available.

    Could there be any truth to this? I usually feel better after eating fat.

    Its pretty well written and believable, however I don’t know how much fat most of us consume on the diet…

    This would include meat and coconut oil and maybe almond butter? This isn’t the same as eating deep fried chicken or twinkies, so I am unsure whether many of use are eating a high fat diet. From my perspective, we all likely reduce our fat levels while on the diet.

    One thing to potentially try is one week with a high fat diet vs. one week with a low and see what difference it makes. Its best to experiment with the diet and not be so regimented.

    As with most subjects, there’s already a thread about this on the forum. Be sure to read the entire thread, it’s only one page. http://www.thecandidadiet.com/forum/yaf_postst6411_Article-on-excess-fats-being-the-problem.aspx

    Sorry, I bet you hate repeating and repeating for us Able! Thank you so much for monitoring the site.

    I thought it was hogwash too since I usually get more energy after eating fat. And that is why I think it’s hypoglycemia. Maybe my pancreas is not working so well.

    No problem, Flipper.

    Maybe my pancreas is not working so well.

    If you really think your pancreas isn’t working at full steam, the herbs Gentian and Echinacea both help to stimulate the function of the pancreas which is to produce digestive juices to help break down macronutrients. Also licorice root supports all of the body’s glandular functions which include the pancreas.

    Today’s industry joined with medical community wants you to kick out fat and base your “healthy” diet on carbs and grains. It is wrong! Healthy diet (the really healthy one) has low carbs and high good fats such as animal fat, coconut oil and other cold pressed oils. Our body cells are made out of fat, we need fat to flourish, we do not really need sugar and it gives us just short term energy. Real energy is produced by fat and protein.

    “When the sugar is distributed and used by the cells of the body, the yeast quickly dies off as it is supposed to.” I mean com on! This makes it sound like we all should just pick up eating a lot of sugar to kill of candida!!!

    If the story about fat being to blame for most of the today’s diseases, our ancestors who ate tons of meat, raw milk, butter etc would be much sicker than we are, but this is not true. The more we follow 20th century guidelines about healthy diets, the sicker we are! Dr. Price (look him up) who went on the search for healthiest people on earth, found that people eating lots of meat, organ meat, sea fish/shells, vegetables, and no grains were healthiest of today, with no degenerative diseases and with healthy teeth, gums…

    Well said, Okra.
    It seems to me that any one of my “Raw Food” friends could have written this article. People just don’t want to believe that there are times when fruit can not be good for you. We have it engrained in our brains that fruit is healthy.
    I agree, fat is good, it gives you sustained energy, not to mention all the health benefits from good fats like coconut oil, and fish oils.

    Sugar & wheat are a cheap filler food that makes everyone sick. Poor people are effected more then middle class, as sometimes they only have access to poor quality food.

    five years ago I thought my first Naturopath was crazy on my first visit with her she told me that fruit is not healthy for most people and that no one should eat processed sugar, or wheat. I never went back to her again.

    However I’m seeing more and more about sugar being bad in the mainstream media which is a good thing. 60 minutes is a very popular respected TV show in The States. You might find Dr. Robert Lustig to be informative.
