Over the years I have done my fair share of low carb diets, ketogenic diets, and foolishly, modified fasts. At first, whenever I would reduce carb intake, the adaptation period would be pretty rough. Cravings, crankiness, the usual symptoms, would reappear pretty soon.
However, now its entirely different. Whenever I decide to reduce my carbs, they really dont surface - the symptoms that is - and if they do, they really are easily manageable. I guess you could say that low carb dieting has become much easier. Interestigly enough, some past clients had noticed this trend too.
Similarly, whenever I have decided to bring my bodyfat down in the past, it got less difficult each time also
Just anecdotal observation, yes. Whether this was down to some alteration in hormonal or enzyme activity I dont know, I have not looked into it.
So, my question to you guys is,
What observations have you made with you and your own diets?
Could be mass building, leaning out, or whatever you wanna share.
