Thanks for your thoughts. I've since increased my carb intake thus kicking me out of ketosis. Its been several days since and I'm still trying to recover. Suffice to say, going into ketosis did not seem to do my system any good at all during this point in my Candida recovery. I think it was too extreme based on my reaction. Massive bloating and swelling in my stomach, head fog, dizziness, blurry vision, heart palpitations, and hypoglycemic. Not something I am comfortable feeling or willing to wait out. I think more than anything else, it has afforded to me that my Candida situation is worse than iniatially thought. I would think going back to phase 1 of the diet, potentially getting your phase 1 products, and spending the next 3-6 months focusing on gradually reducing the Candida might be my best option before I consider any major sudden changes to the way my body gets its energy source (i.e. no sugar/carb but just fats). I will be saving up to purchase your phase 1 to add to my Candida diet.
Question for you if I may?
If hypoglycemia is a concern, is it better to eat more frequent (following the Candida diet) but in small amounts throughout the day when dealing with Candida? If so, what are your thoughts on doing intermitting fasting on the Candida diet/program?
Appreciate your reply,
