S/C/G: See my siggy ;)

Height: 5'8"


I had to up my carbs when my exercise got intense (running 3 miles a day, weight training 5 times a week, boxing twice a week). I was getting fatigued, specifically in my muscles which I noticed would get much better after the odd cheat meal. I am still low carb but I could not do my workouts anywhere near ketosis. And I do eat a lot of fats, especially Omega 3s.

I am definitely in the low carb does not mean no carb camp.

No carb works well for weight loss if you just want to sit and waste away.

But you need some carbs to fuel an exercise regime that makes you look good at goal.

I eat oats.
