Keto diet isn't really the same as the anti-fungal diet, but they share the same foundation of focus on what kind of carbs to eat - or not eat.
San Antonio -
When you react to "regular" healthy foods like chicken, veggies, you're talking about
leaky gut. The undigested food particles, fecal matter and other toxins, etc. seep through the damaged mucosal lining and enter the bloodstream, where your immune system recognizes it as "foreign bodies" and starts the reaction to it. If your damage is significant enough, you could react to everything you eat, even the good stuff.
My IgG/IgA tests showed reactions to EVERYTHING.
The only thing you can do, if the reactions are severe, is to just allow your GI to heal. It takes a long time. I had some foods that caused no physical ailments or sx but they showed up really high on tests and I kept consuming them - my ND at the time suggested it was probably OK (like almonds, almond milk, chicken).
Other things I made sure to avoid - eggs, legumes, dairy, etc. I think you're aware of issues with those foods but if not I can share.
One of the things that helped me was a slow ratcheting down of the volume of food I ate.
This won't work for everyone - especially people who are really physical. But it is possible to function with fewer calories for a short period of time. Eating less volume - grazing rather than real meals was also key to my healing. It was just easier to digest a smaller amount of food. It takes awhile for your body to not demand a bunch of calories, but in time my stomach shrunk and demanded less. The more I healed, the more I was able to get back to a more regular schedule and size and type of meal.
- When you overload your GI - even with the good, healthy foods - it struggles.
- And a lot of veggies, and all at once, is a lot of roughage and that's hard on the raw, damaged mucosal lining.
- This is why I consumed most of my veggies in pureed, soup form.
- I backed way off the roughage (including salads) for a few months also, because I didn't want to increase slow motility, which also lets food sit on the mucosal lining longer than it should.
So, try more liquid/pureed/"deconstructed" foods, soups (it's summertime - cold soups are "in"), baby-food consistency, lots of broth-based soups (add frozen veggies and protein for convenience), and eat very small but frequent meals, rather than as you say "a sizeable meal".
Hope that's helpful.
