I've read as many posts and articles as I could find and would be happy to be redirected to others if necessary, but I was hoping that some of the more knowledgeable members could help me a bit.
My diet is currently approx. 30 c / 40 p / 30 f and it seems that whenever I eat any significant amount of carbs I get very tired, sometimes even needing a nap shortly thereafter. I tried my first carb refeed this past weekend to attempt to jump start my metabolism using hi GI carbs like bagels & low-sugar cereals. I could hardly get off of the couch after about 8 hours of this plus I put on about 7 lbs. of water / glyco.
So this week I cut carbs across the board (to about 20% of macro. total) and suddenyl I felt lighter, leaner, more energized and more clear headed. Isn't this supposed to be the other way around?
I've read a bit about insulin resistance & metabolic syndrome but couldn't get the gist of most of it. I was hoping someone could put it in English for me (lol). Iv've read most of the keto threads here & it sounds like something I might need to consider.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
