I used to be very heavy very fat person... I was 13 and weighed 252lbs at my worst had 52 inch waist at 5'3 lol. Was at a huge health risk being this big obviously but, I finally changed mt ways and am now at 195lbs at 5'6.
But I have for about the past year or so been slowly uping my carbs and all that is happening is I am blowing up around the waist again. Everytime I have a cheat meal at say a mexican restaurant I literally gain 10-15lbs by the next day obvioulsy mostly water gain but I feel like shit.
Now to my question what are your opinions on a low carb life style for the rest of my life even... Almost like the adkins diet but would only cosume high quality meat and protein and only carbs I would consume would come from vegetables and dairy products keeping my carbs below 100 a day. Obviously this is just a rough draft of what i am thinking.
But I dont see where it could be a bad thing for me... carbs dont seem to give me any performance boosts to strength or endurance... I am just as strong when shoveling 400 or 500 carbs aday for weeks as I am with taking in almost none and I feel amzingly better on low carb.
More energy, never feel bloated and heavy, and keeps my waist as small as possible which I have horrible love handles so its much help... Opinions.
