If I look at my total carbs through the week they seem to hover around 40-60, which is higher than the 26 I'd be allotted according to PB's formula (if I use 115 as my goal weight, which I'm not sure is reasonable with my large bones). But I have been drinking wine most days so some of the carbs in my tracker are actually alcohol. When I go on net carbs they are so low it's almost scary. One day was 3g. I figure I'm in a pretty good ballpark though because normally when I go low carb I get about 50% fat and now I'm trending 65% so it's a difference that is noticeable.
After my run yesterday I woke up early this morning and feeling bursting with a desire to go running again. Instead, I limped to the bathroom with muscle soreness. Oops. Oh well. Like you, PB, it feels like a weight lifted off me, not like a burden. Like Forgot, I also experienced hair loss earlier this year, but I honestly think it was because I was taking too much selenium. It started shortly after starting selenium and when I stopped it, the hair loss stopped immediately. I am not taking supplements anymore.
