Definitely a step backwards today, and hoping to get some advice from some of the more seasoned vets.
Today marks two weeks that I’ve been on a next to zero carbs switch. Protein and fats have been flawless, around 275g protein (1.5/pound) and 110-120 healthy fats. I honestly, after fibrous green veggies are removed, am somewhere around 15-20g of carbs.
I’ve never gone low carb/no carb before, and I’ve never trained at the intensity that CT’s refined physique program demands of you.
I’ve also dropped 10 pounds in two weeks, admittedly a lot, but some of which may be water weight from what I understand.
So I got through the circuit part of the lactate workout today, but knew something was up…and when I attempted to do the low intensity cardio afterwards…dizziness…need to throw up…definitely not a good thing. Had to stop.
So question is really not whether I’ve overtrained/asked too much of my body too soon, but more where to go from here?
Do I introduce more clean carbs?
Take a few days off?
Possibly I’ve shocked my body too much with the 10 pound drop plus removing almost entirely its previously accustomed to source of glucose plus training the shit out of it?
Honestly, please weigh in on this guys. Thanks.
