Low Carb & Low Energy?

I been fairly good on my low carb eating lately, as a result I seem to have low energy.

does this mean that lack of carbs to burn for energy will kick start my metabolism to burn off body fat for energy? I hope so.

if so will my energy levels bounce back? thanks.

Browse the AD thread, it gives a pretty good summary of how you’ll feel and what you should notice.

In my experience, yes, you’ll feel a difference between 3 to 10 days, after that, you won’t need to worry as energy levels will rebound.

Make sure you do a carb-up each week, that way you can gain strength. I remember once when I didn’t do that and it sucked.
