Im getting very confused now about what to do regarding carbs.
Ive suffered with candida probably since i was 17 (im 30 now) when i was pumped with anti biotics for an open crush injury on my finger.
I had collic at 18 and indegestion for many years including a complete nervous breakdown when it got really bad.
Anyway i eventually diagnosed candida on myself about a year and a half ago(please dont even consider mentioning a doctor that is a serious LOL regarding them and candida diagnosis) and now i think im pretty much clear,just have to stay off sugar and keep the carbs well down for a year or two..maybe always.
Im also doing as much exercise as my body can handle starting last week.Mostly cardio for martial arts, no heavy weights.
Im 5' 11" about 10- 10.5 stone id guess and there isnt much fat left on me after my candida diet which caused me to lose too much weight.
I have a very fast metabolism.
The issue im having is that im reading many different things about ketosis and not sure how this applies to my body since i had candida for over 10 years im sure.
Was only when i stopped exercising and had a bad diet that i broke down mentally.
Anyway im reading that you can go into toxicity with ketones which are acidic if your are a type one diabetic.
With candida so im not sure how that effects the body especially over a long period regarding making insulin.So thats one question i have if anyone happens to know.
Also im reading the side effects. Heres a copy paste of some i found,
Positives and Negatives of the Ketogenic Diet
Is it true you get bad breath? i dont like the sound of that what if i have a girlfriend lol
Will i need to take supplements for missing vitamins? I dont like the idea of needing any vits to be honest.Id rather eat a healthy diet.But carbs are out because of candida unless its a very small amount.
Now i am happy to not go into ketosis and continue to burn carbs.
But if i eat any carbs for energy before a workout will the yeast start to spread again or will the exercise burn that up before the candida can flare again?
Also if i take carbs to build my glycogen levels in my muscles up again will that feed the candida before it has a chance to do its real job?
So far i have been going for runs this last two weeks and found porridge gives me great energy for the run and i found eating eggs and bacon didnt give me as much energy.
I felt a little drained near the start of my run.Im guessing i was relying on carbs and hadnt gotten any after my last workout to rebuild the energy levels.
But also when i was eating porridge i could feel the candida flaring up slightly i think.Hard to say as i stupidly ate a magnum the night before and i believe there is gluten in those as its packed in a wrapper
But this last 3 days or more i have been eating only eggs,bacon,minced beef with LOTS of salad, with probiotic yogurt and a chopped apple with a manderine for desert each day.I feel great though.
So any info relating to candida and ketosis with thin people i would love to hear.Even links to sites that will help me sove these queries.
Most of these sites seem to be written for people with candida looking to lose weight.Its like they forget us skinny folks can get it too
