Every food has some carb content even meat. When first going on the candida diet lots of people, including mysefl experiecne like a low blood Sugar feeling from withdrawl, but actually I find that being on the candida diet eventually winds up giving one more energy. Most likely because it is killing the yeast that makes us feel tired and lethargic.
What you can try is buckwheat pancakes or pasta. It is a carb but safe for candida and technically not a grain. Millet also very good. Also starchy veggies add complex carbs. Veggies such as turnip, cauliflower and the like have some Sugar content from carb and breakdwon slowly giving you a slow released steady energy instead of the bursts you get with refined grains and carbs.
Actually that burst you get from refined grains and carbs is your pancreas playing yo yo with your body. The body really does benefit from slow release sustained amount of Sugar in the blood from complex carbs as opposed to bursts.
It is the bursts of energy from sugar that actually are the cause of many with type 2 diabetes later in life, from beating up the pancreas. While your blood sugar yo yos all over the place your pancreas tries to stabalize it. Usually with a shot of insulin. Then voila, you are sleepy or tired.
With the candida this does not happen. You get a good sutained blood sugar level. If you find you need some sugar , at least eat in the complex form as it will not do as much damage while on candida diet. Snack on carrot sticks. Carrots contain an amount of sugar. Also get yourself some Concentrace liquid minerals and spike your water bottle with it. It will give you energy by relpacing lost electrolytes in a highly absorbable form that is quick.
