So basically put myself through Keto hell for the last 6 months.
First things first I work a EXTREMELY physical job on the rigs. This is a typical 10hr day. I work 14 straight then get 7 off.
-At least 15,000 steps.
-300 Feet of Vertical Ladder
-300 Feet of Stairs
-Hoisting my body weight up over pipes, beams etc...
-Pulling cable, hose, hundreds of meters
I was calorie in calorie deficit and going almost zero carbs... I'd break and have a cookie or 10 once a week.
This may come across as a asinine question, but is this the reason I was running into the stuff in the subject title? (Dizziness, Palpitations, Anxiety, Fatigue) Towards the end of the day, I'd be worried about climbing ladder. Hitting the gym after for 1.5hrs was just murder. I had to STRUGGLE to not pass out. There was times when I almost passed out, heart started racing and I'd induce terrible anxiety and perpetuate the feeling.
I'm extremely close with my doctor (he bought me a bottle of Blue Label for Christmas) and see him about every 3 months. Diabetes? Nope. BP - 120/80. Lipids - Perfect.
Healthy as a horse.
Said forget it, starting this shift. Threw in 2 bran muffins and 2 whole wheat pitas into my diet. SFA and I feel like goddamned Superman.
Now gaining wait, but getting more cut. WTF IS GOING ON.
Appreciate any comments at all. Cheers.
