I’ve started tracking my macros again which has bought me to this forum. Over the last 2 years I successfully lost 40kgs (88lbs) on keto but have new goals to achieve. I’ve never been physically strong and aim to build muscle and strength through weight training. For this, I’ve decided to transition back to carbs but my body seems to be hating it. I really thrived for the last 2 years and didn’t really experience the “keto flu” as others struggled with. But, coming back onto carbs, is it possible to get “Carb flu”? I think I’m about a week in and I’m just feeling like I’ve hit a brick wall. And I haven’t even started my training yet!
I’m not calling it quits, but thought I’d share my experience incase there’s someone else out there in similar circumstances. It’s not something I can find too much information about.
I can’t seem to digest oats but rice is fine. I understand it takes time for your gut microbiome to adapt, but it’s just a frustrating process.
