Feeling Flat During Cutting


Does anyone start to feel "flat" when you cut? And what does this mean?


what are your carb grams/day?


<50 g, ketogenic


“Flat” as in “tired”?

Hell yeah.


Speaking from personal experience, if I dont get enough fat I feel flat, how long have you been in ketosis for?


4 weeks


It depends on what you mean

“Flat” as in flat muscle you’d probably find most people associate it with muscle glycogen store depletion and the fact that carbs draw water into the muscle cells and on a ketogenic diet with very low or no carbs your muscles will get flat.

If you mean flat as in “no energy” flat you arent eating enough.
