I've been following the PB wisdom for almost a month now. At first my energy levels were fantastic. I had some sugar cravings in the form of fruits but was able to keep them at bay. My workouts (p90x) still went well. No injuries or fatigue. Then about 2 weeks ago, I decided to kick some fat loss into high gear; I tried to get into keytosis. My carbs were only from my big ass salads and a few berries a day, but other than that, trying to get body fat to do its thing. I seemed fine for a few days, but I noticed that I started to lose energy really fast. My sleep patterns were also lacking as well. I've get 9-10 hours of sleep and I also notices that 20 minutes into a regularly performed P90X workout, I'd be so winded and wasted I had to stop. I get the whole "don't exhaust yourself by doing strenuous working out" perspective, but before I was doing P90X Doubles and sometimes doing a MoveNat type workout. Now I am losing steam in the first 15 min of a run, set of push ups or even pull ups.
Today I decided to add 1 piece of stone fruit to my breakfasts and dinner. Just to see if a wee bit more natural carbs would do it. I won't know until a few days from now.
Has anyone had this experience? I am only asking because I was actually kind of scared. I mean I was doing the "Core Synergistic X" workout and the first part of staggered hand push ups I used to do 35, lately I can only do 15-20.
Thanks in advance.
