Hey guys I hate to keep asking for advice all the time with so little knowledge/experience to give back to the community, but I really need some help on this one as I may have put my health at risk.
I just got done losing a lot of fat and managed to keep the muscle, getting down to around 4-5% bf. I’ve been trying to increase carbs slowly, and I was shooting for about 25 additional low GI grams per week for 6 weeks. But I’ve been afraid that the math doesn’t work out; I’m basically out of fat to buffer the transition with, and I probably need to eat more. I’ve been really worried about muscle loss as a result, but I’ve been afraid to increase carbs too quickly and get bloated/gain fat and undo all the work I just did.
Anyway I think today I experienced hypoglycemia, I felt this weird tingling sensation, felt extremely weak, got kind of dizzy, and couldn’t concentrate at all. It sucked. So I left work early and had some Surge (and about 3 bowls of Fiber One, I went a little crazy…) and now I feel better.
In the coming days are there any serious health issues I should be aware of? I don’t want to lose any gains I made, but I also don’t want to faint randomly during the day. My lean mass is about 170 lbs. is there a number of calories I should eat? I increased it from 2000 to 2300 about 2 weeks ahead of schedule, but can I/should I go even higher without bloating up/regaining fat?
