More energy when I eat low carb
Is this typical? I've been eating more carbs lately - mainly rice and sweet potatoes, but carbs none-the-less. It culminated in pasta and ice cream Friday night, and I decided to make sure I came back in line as I went up 1.5 pounds. So for the past few days, I've been strictly low carb - meat, veggies and some dairy. I'm bouncing off the walls this morning (and it's only 5:30AM!). Kind of bummed because my knee is bothering me, so I need to rest it a bit, but I'll take the dogs for a longish walk this morning.
I always thought carbs = energy. But I feel better and more in line when I eat lower to low carb. I need less sleep, I have more energy and I feel absolutely amazing.
The added benefit is that I get to drive everyone at the office up the wall.
