OK, for the last 20 weeks ago, I have been following a Low Carb regimen. I don’t want to say diet because I was only below maintenance for about 12 of those weeks. I got to single digit bodyfat for the first time in my life, at 5’8, 167 lbs, and 8%bf. Since then I’ve been eating maintenance, maybe a bit above maintenance, and have gained a little weight, not much more than 10% bf.
My question is this: I have had two TOTAL days where I have eaten > 30 grams of carbs. This has led to no increase in strength, and in fact sometimes I feel like I might be a little weaker than when I started. Have I ruined my insulin sensitivity, as well as any other things I should be aware of, by being low carb for so long?
P.S. I will begin reintroducing carbs periworkout first with Surge, then two weeks later start with breakfast oatmeal. Thoughts as to this as well?
