There are differing opinions since Candida can feed on ketones, etc.
Im confused, is it SIBO that cant feed on starchy foods like potatoes, but Candida can?
However, candida cant feed on green leafy vegetables but SIBO can ferment them?
If someone were to have both, would it be wise to do a course of antibiotics and then treat for candida? Or treat for SIBO first then treat for candida overgrowth?

Did it turn out you had SIBO? Or are just you assuming? Last time I checked, it appeared that you were assuming, but you did not appear to have overgrowth of bacteria. However, were you tested, and did the results prove positive?
People tend to follow a SCD (Standard Carb Diet) and avoid sugar AFTER a course of antibiotics as following a SCD prior will provide only minor relief. However, the problem with taking antibiotics is that they are often only effective in the short term because they do not treat the CAUSE of the bacterial overgrowth. Hence, remission is inevitable.
SIBO and candida overgrowth are often a sign of an underlying problem, explaining why so many people are continuously suffering as their symptoms simply need to be evaluated further. Understandably, there is some sort of malfunction in the digestive tract which leads to overgrowth of bacteria. Without treating this, you cannot quell the overgrowth.
