So, low carb seemed to work extremely well for you. Do you personally reccommend it? I heard you lose tons of energy and a little strength.
Personally I love it. I recommend it to everyone, but it's not for everyone some people just can't kick the carbs. I always tend to keep my carbs on the lower side. Now I'm eating around 80g-125g depending on the day. I just love eating meat so it's more appealing to me I was never a bread kinda guy.
low carb is ok if you do it for a little bit as I've done it multiple times and you do lose a little energy but only until your body starts to feed on the stored carbs in your body, then you get a jolt of energy and after a little bit more time letting your body eat away the stored carbs inside you, should you start introducing carbs back into your diet slowly to keep the energy levels where they are at, however if you DONT do this then you will notice a big energy drop and it will be hard to go through your workout with high intensity and you will start to feel lethargic at some points.....i did this when I took keto too far and did it for a month or two end-to-end and was wondering why my workouts were lacking in energy/intensity....other than that its ok.
That's why you should carb refeed (how many times a fortnight depends on your bodyfats), you need to restore Leptin levels to kickstart your body into burning more fat.
I know plenty of people doing it, and Josef Rakich does it. There is heaps of stuff on here and on his facebook/IG from him.
Good job on the weight loss btw

If it was easy, everyone would be fit... How bad do you want it?
