So I have been on PB for 6 weeks and before that I was already eating only 115 g carbs (no grains/sugar) a day, so it was not a big leap down to <50/day for me. My question is, I know PB is supposed to stabilize your blood sugar, but I wake up in the morning (after 8-9 hours sleep) feeling awful- body is exhausted, bad mood, brain fog, pain and don't feel ok until about 1 hour after breakfast. Then I don't get "hungry" as in stomach rumbling, just the same thing happens 3.5-5 hours later so I need to eat again. I also notice that saturated fat and cheese (although I generally avoid it, maybe 1x week) make me feel better almost immediately while olive oil (in salads) does not. Now I've had all the tests done and my glucose levels are fine, not hypothyroid, etc. I do have lupus but this isn't really have anything to do with that. Is this a fat-related feeling? As in, I am not eating enough fat or maybe enough calories? I am currently eating 20-40g carbs per day with 70-75% fat, 7% carbs, about 20% protein around 1600 calories a day for a 5'7" 170# woman trying to lose fat. This seems like it should be enough fat in my diet, but I don't know what else it could be as I am not overtraining either.
No announcement yet.
Lack of Energy- related to meals/type of fats?
