    I feel your pain. While I probably can’t offer much of a solution other than take it easy (which other’s have told me). I am currently training for a long distance bicycle race/ride and am trying to get in 10-30 miles every other night or so, but man it’s hard. I overdid it enough last Sunday I puked (just started taking the strong probiotic, so I think that contributed). Make sure you don’t eat right before you work out. While you are working out your body is busy keeping up blood flow, etc and your food won’t digest in a timely manner, plus the food isn’t digested enough at that point to give you the extra energy you need. I would try eating an hour to an hour and a 1/2 before your workout. I tried the Pumpkin Pie muffins in the recipe section and LOVED them, so that’s an alternative option to the bread. I’ve also tried making chicken and noodles with brown rice pasta which is carb heavy, but a safe grain. Depending on where you are in the diet and your level of Candida I don’t know if you’re okay to add the brown rice pasta into your diet or not. These are just things that have helped me, but no, I can’t work out like I should be able to at this point. Good luck.

    well stomach issues were one of my main candida issues, generally having nausea about 70% of the time. everything makes me vomit, so i’m not super suprised. that’s why i’m havig trouble finding foods i can eat. i’m not the grin and bear it kind of person. if i don’t like it i can’t even gage it down without vomiting. at this point i can’t do most veggies, eggs are really hard and i’m i can’t eat the yogurt plain. oh, and the coconut bread (and the 3 other bread recipes on here) can’t do it, i just can’t, tried the all, didn’t like any of them! i’d rather starve.

    i’m just weird 🙂

    the ones I had were only 1 billion, but I was taking quite a few a day. i want this candida gone, so if this is normal i will suffer, but I just wanted to make sure that it was just a die-off symptom.

    I have deer meat in the freezer, I could use that, I’m using minimal amounts. Also couldn’t find beef broth without yeast extract. Guess I’ll use chicken broth.

    I was using Baking soda too until I got some sugar free toothpaste. I’m currently using Spry. Is that okay? It’s got Xylitol in it.

    I used a little bit of the quinoa flour last night to bread some chicken nuggets and fry them in olive oil. I actually feel much better today (less shaky and tired).

    I also started eating some Fage 2% (Greek yogurt). It tastes like sour cream, which is one of my favs. I’m going to start dipping my veggies in it. How much yogurt per day to enough or too much? I also read somewhere to let it set out and get kinda warm before you eat eat because then the bacterica can actually start to multiply in it naturally. Does that sound right or just like someone’s BS?

    I started the Coconut Oil too yesterday, had one Tbsp yesterday and one this morning, but no further die off symptoms, like I said, I feel much better, will it take a few days for those to kick-in? Other than this dang rash thing I feel good. How do I know if it is indeed a yeast infection in my armpit or just a rash? Should I treat it or just let it be?

    Sorry for all the random questions. You guys are a ton of help.

    My problem is I can’t differentiate between the Candida symptoms of fatigue and tiredness and the complete and total lack of calories I’m eating. I eat as many veggies as possible and meat and eggs, but if I eat to much at once it makes me sick, I know I’m not getting enough on a daily basis.

    I went to the organic isle of our local Hyvee and found some things that may help with that, almond butter, Fage (organic yogurt), buckwheat flour and quiona flour and some avacodos. The coconut flour bread is just to gross tasting for me to eat without gagging. I’m weird and if I don’t like it I can’t just make myself eat it, I’ll puke!

    I also wondered if it was okay to take an apple cider vinegar pill once daily to keep things moving? I see that the only vinegar that’s okay is the apple cide vinegar, but didn’t know about the pill form.

    I wanted to hopefully make you feel better and not like your all alone, as I am on just my first week of Stage 1 of the diet and am feeling extreme fatigue also. I have lost over 8 lbs this week. I’m adding more meat into my diet, and that might slow down the weight loss, but I don’t see it stopping it. My die-off symptoms are minimal right now and I think they are what is causing my fatigue, not the lack of calories.

    Super duper sigh…. no caffine free diet coke for me :(.

    I figured it was bad, but just HAD to ask. I am so in withdrawl. 7 days since my last one. I’ve never smoked, but I’m guessing I miss diet coke more than a cigarette addict misses his smokes while he’s quitting!

    Thanks for the input everyone. You guys are great (even though you don’t give me the answers I want :)).

    I started taking the Molybdenum this morning, 125 mg. I also had a small amount of chicken at lunch and a bit of hamburger at dinner. I’m going to go easy on the red meat, but know I can’t take it out of my diet entirely. I couldn’t find any Coconut flour at the store (tried 2) so I’ll have to order it online. I got lots of fish, chicken, and more organic eggs today to go with my veggies, so I can slowly start adding those back into my diet too.
