Is the 50-60g carb recommendation Net carbs or Total carbs?

by Jake

If total, then I can see that being manageable to get via the 'good foods' vegetable list. But if that is referring to Net carbs, then you would either have to eat an insane amount of the good food vegetables (eg: brussel sprouts are one of the higher carb 'good foods' at 5g Net carbs per 100g, but you'd still need to eat 1kg of them a day). Or start eating the less than ideal foods like sweet potatoes or even grains to increase your carb intake. Thanks for the clarification.

Total verses Net carbs
by: Dan

Generally, total. But some people are going to need a little more and some will do fine with less. I can get by on 40 grams total carbs per day with no problems. Others have an energy crash so severe they can hardly function. In these cases they can raise the carbs to around 75 grams a day and give their bodies time to adapt, which takes about 3 weeks. People that are used to high carb diets might have severe sugar cravings as well and the 75 grams will help them get through this.

There are also some fruits and grains that are allowed on the Candida diet if needed. I have a pretty complete list on the Candida diet good foods page if it helps.

You can add more calories by consuming more good fats in your diet. One gram of fat contains 9 calories verses carbs 4 calories.

Thank you
by: Jake

Thank you for clearing that up. As I have been aiming for 50-60g of NET carbs (eg, I have generally been eating 150g of sweet potatoes for 25g of NET carbs and then 100g of non-starchy vegetables for another 5g of NET carbs. Which gives me 30g for 1 meal. Then I just do the same for my 2nd meal for a total of 55-60g of Net carbs. But now I see that is actually 70g of total carbs)

So now I can cut down on the sweet potatoes, as I was only using them to bump up the carb count to avoid ketosis.
