Since work has been crazy crazy lately, I decided I'd do 2 weeks of low-carb (under 30g a day) and jump on the elliptical for 15-20 min before I leave for work.
The goal of losing a few pounds before another PH cycle worked well, but today I hit the weights and didn't my session suck!! I could lift nowhere near what I could 3 weeks ago, and even after dropping some weight off I couldn't hit any reps, either!
So this is my theory, and please tell me what you all think because I really dunno.....
Yesterday was the last low-carb day, and I started eating carbs again this morning after 2 weeks of low carb. So, I need a day or two to "soak up" some carbs for more energy/drive/strength...
-And/or- I didn't eat enough in general to maintain my size the last 2 weeks, so I lost a good bit of muscle. I felt I ate more than needed of fats and protein, tho.
So any ideas? I was just getting into the swing of things with the low carb because I may start cycling, and going two weeks was an easy way to figure out what I could and couldn't eat.
