    I am asking because I am feeling rough and on this forum people attribute this adjustment period to adapting to low carb way of eating. Although marks carb curv says 100-150g per day is fine for maintenance, I was unclear whether this would allow for transition to mainly fat burning. I used to eat about 80% so my body is used to glucose for energy.

    My main source of carbs atm are fruit, veg (carrots, onions, broccoli etc.), sweet potatoes, and occasional rice.

    I think that is low-enough to be a fat-burner

    How long have you been feeling rough? And out of the foods you listed, what do you eat the greatest proportion of for your carbohydrates? Fruit and potatoes are going to give you far more usable glucose than broccoli, carrots and onions. I think it's either a matter of not enough glucose or not enough of an adjustment period, but you did say you've been at this for groking ages.

    If you're a heavy meat eater, a diet high in fat and protein and low glycemic vegetables can be a recipe for misery for a lot of people. Chances are you'd probably feel better with the new fab ketosis where you lower your protein and basically live on dairy, but that's something you have to have the taste for.
