I posted this in this section of the forum as I think it is related to candida. As I am trying to battle candida I have cut down on sugars and fruits (it is debated if you need to cut down on fruits, but every person is different and I think in my case I need to stop every type of sugar). I have been eaing fried potatoes (french fries) on a daily bases. I think that potatoes also convert into sugar in the blood stream. So I decided to cut down on them also. However since I stop eatting my fried potatoes my sleep quality has been dramatically worsen. To be more precise I do not feel well rested after I wake up and I think I do not go into deep REM sleep. I am trying to find out what is going on. Is it some kind of withdrawal symptom? Is it low carbs? (I have been trying to put other stuff in my diet to make up for the lost carbs of the fried potatoes, like more salads or rice but it does not seem to help) Could also be related to low sugar and insulin... Any ideas?
