A woman I know has heard before that low carb diet is dangerous, but hasn’t seen any good information about it. She has been on what she would consider a low carb diet for the last 2 months dealing with this candida overgrowth. Now, she is not really sure what constitutes a carb, but she doesn’t eat any fruit and no dairy except yogurt and some occasional Swiss cheese, also no bread except some millet bread every once in awhile and no sugar of any kind, including cane juice, honey, etc.
She eats lots of meat, eggs, veggies, and nuts, and has rice or brown rice pasta maybe 1 or 2 times a week. She will also have a green plantain a couple times a month and eats popcorn 2-3 times a week. She is trying to add in some avocados (fat), but is not very creative with them. She has lost almost 15 lbs in the last 2 months and feels great, but she is only 5’4″ and now weighs 115 lbs, which is probably good muscle. But, she doesnt want to get too skinny that needs to add back in some fat to his diet.
Low carb diets are dangerous if it would be less than 30% of your total caloric intake from all sources. Reduced carb diets are ok if it is around 30% to 40% of the total. There are carbs in all vegetables; ditching the high-glycemic carbs, sugars, and starches, fruits, etc, which do not constitute a low carb diet.
If you have candida, laying off the pasta, popcorn, and rice will help you more than eating it. Similarly, plantain is a carb food. A lot of women would donate a body part to have your body fat index. More high-quality protein will help you put on some nice muscle tone. I suggest cold-processed whey isolate 60 grams daily. Body builders use up to 120 grams daily.
