More Low Carb/Keto Thoughts...


Yesterday I went up to 100 grams of carbs (good ones!) and today the scale is up by 2 pounds... I know it's not "real" weight but probably water but WTF! Seriously!

And I didn't feel very good carb-wise. There's this feeling I get when I have too many carbs and sugars, I can't really describe it but it's not fun and that was last night. Almost like a "carb hangover" kind of feeling which sucked considering how good I've been feeling.

I'm starting to think that the "sweet spot" I've been looking for is 50 grams and under instead of 100 and under because that's when I feel my best. I think I'm going to keep this week 50 grams of carbs and under and really pay attention to how I'm feeling, especially after working out. Those days I may go higher but it all depends on how I feel, how my body reacts and basically if I really want them, or, like, need them or if it's just a craving. That makes a big difference!

So that's the general plan and at some point in time I'll decide if this is a low carb lifestyle or a keto one or a combo but for now I'm taking it day by day and really listening to my body!
