    Why are you eating just meat and veggies only. Why are you not eating some fruit and maybe some nuts..........

      My boyfriend recently had an ablation done. He's been very irritable since then, plus he gets really angry when I can't understand what he says to me. He does not realize that he speaks a little incoherently at times, using the wrong words, which causes me a lot of confusion. I don't think he is aware of the effect the procedure had on him. He is getting a radioactive stress test today. I can't wait to see what that does to him. Maybe I should go hide somewhere.

        Did he have conscious sedation? I felt off-kilter for a while after my EP study (they were planning to ablate during the procedure, but couldn't recreate the arrhythmia), and often wonder if it wasn't due to the CS medications. I was horribly irritable after the procedure (I even got into a heated argument with my cardiologist and father-in-law, which is VERY out-of-character for me) and though it's not supposed to last long afterward, it seemed like it took me a while to get back to normal.

          Have you tried increasing your carbs? Everyone is different with the level they need to thrive, and I think this is the major downfall of Mark's macro guidelines; he assumes that everyone is more or less the same in this regard and it's just not true.

          I personally developped pretty debilitating fatigue, lethargy, and depression from eating too low carb for too long. When I switched up my diet to high carb/low fat, I had a pretty amazing improvement in my health; I had a ton of energy, I felt happy and motivated.

          Maybe you really just need some more carbs.

            He was not unconscious during the procedure. They threaded some instrument into his femoral artery and into his heart and zapped some cells. He watched it on the computer monitor. His arrhythmia was not a dangerous kind. It was an elective procedure. He's not even sure if it worked. He's had some chest pain since the procedure, which I'm sure has only made him even more irritable since he had so much hope this procedure would fix everything. A friend of ours also had the same arrhythmia and also isn't sure it worked. It seems weird to me that you can't tell if something worked, but I guess the body is a mysterious thing.

              People are all over the board with their ratios around here and I would not presume to try to tell you want would be best for you. I'm trying to stay around 15% carbs, 25% protein and 60% fat. But I'm a 50 year old female trying to lose the last 10 - 15 lbs.

              Just track what you are currently eating for a week and then make small adjustments. I do think you might want to increase Or decrease your carbs to feel better. If you search the forum on carbs... You will find ALOT of opinions and interesting reading...

              Also mind your potassium and sodium intake to make sure you are not too low as well.

                  I have not done much exercising at all. I have started walking more, but I haven't been lifting. It has been a trial to get back my endurance after my heart procedure. I just need to make time and do it.
                  thanks for your help. Mr.C

                    Dear sbhikes...
                    I am sorry that your friend is having difficulties. This afib thing is a nightmare for the patient and for loved ones. I had suffered for years with afib and I am sure that I put my wife and family through hell. I was put under general anesthesia and it took me a while to get back to normal. I was under for about 4 1/2 hours I believe. Anesthesia is no joke. That stuff can be some serious s--t! I wish you and your boyfriend both a speedy recovery.

                    Mr. C

                        NZ Primal Gwamma...thanks for the follow up. I am doing well. I'm still not where I'm supposed to be yet, or wait, I guess I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be because that's where I am. Anyway, I will continue this process and try and enjoy the journey . I'm working the program, I'm taking baby steps. Thanks for your support. Mr. C
