In the past, I have had no issue with exercising and feeling great for the whole day afterwards. I ended up taking almost 4 months off of 'strenuous' exercise (trying to cut out the chronic cardio) after I had a pretty scary hypo like attack and... (more)
Personally, I wouldn't be unable to replete muscle glycogen on such a diet due to the low carbohydrate intake and would have the exact same symptoms. You might try adding in starch and seeing if there's a difference. It worked for me.
HI all, Over the past year I've noticed my legs becoming increasingly weak when, say, walking up stairs or up a hill, to the point that I feel a bit puffed and tired when I get to the top. I'm not unfit and my leg muscles are strong, I can do... (more)
I must have eaten something that really, really didn't agree with me combined with too many fermented vegetables, but long story short I have been up all evening/night/morning perched in a squat position. I have never experience bowl movements... (more)
Hey all, Only been one week into Paleo. Haven't noticed any significant changes except I tend to get redness on my face at times. My main question is, do most people see changes in skin while on Paleo? I've been itching a lot more than usual,... (more)
Sorry to be a (grass fed) chicken, but is it normal to feel shaky, weak, slightly nauseous etc and to have a runny nose, dry mouth and feel a bit 'wired' when you are in week one of ketosis or is this a sign I should stop? This is my first time... (more)
I've had this issue for as long as I could remember. If I stand up too quickly, sometimes my sight will go black and I'll feel dizzy for a few seconds. Crouching has always been problematic. I guess I'm restricting blood flow while my knees are... (more)
Solid 5 weeks on Paleo. No bread, pasta, legumes, dairy. Felt great, slowly loosing weight but down about 12lbs overall (I thank crossfit for that) The other day I cracked at a party. Beer, cheese, crackers which spiraled into this Monday and... (more)
We all do it for our own reasons. Sure, our mind thinks we miss those things, but our bodies speak up and let us know otherwise. We all learn from our mistakes, or at least we hope to. Start back up this second! Be well!
Update 05/10/2012 -- Resolution of Symptoms Its been a few months since this post, but I think I have finally seen a return of my libido. Its still intermittent, but seems to be growing stronger. What did it for me was B-12. Turns out I'm... (more)
Hello my friends, I have come for some advice on how to get some energy back, the past few months I have been doing a lot of sitting and by alot I mean TUNS nearly all day long. I have noticed now when standing I have to sit back down pretty... (more)
This sounds more like an activity rather than diet problem. Getting into the habit of talking a walk (outside preferably) for 5 minutes every hour or two at work can make a big difference, but it is difficult when you don't feel like you have the... (more)
I'm 23. I'm skinny. I eat healthy, and walk occasionally. I don't work out much. I tried doing push ups, and it was somewhat hard to get 20. That sounds weak to me. :P I could probably do more, but I would feel like I'm over exerting my... (more)
I've been low carb paleo (25/10/65 pro/carb/fat) for a long time (almost 1.5 years now) and I lost about 50 pounds doing it (for a total of 100 pounds of weight loss). I hit a plateau at 182 pounds for at least eight months. I experimented with... (more)
The demons in my office are constantly parading all manner of sweet treats by my cube every morning... Some days I win the battle and some days I don't. I am working on my office situation as it is the only time I my will is tested; I have gotten... (more)
my first week on paleo, I felt absolutely wonderful. tons of energy and just a generally positive, good feeling. now, halfway into my second week and I seem to be having some ill effects. I have been having a very dull pain in my left abdomen and... (more)
This article I wrote might help explain some things for you: http://gnolls.org/1984/the-science-behind-the-low-carb-flu-and-how-to-regain-your-metabolic-flexibility/ The Perfect Health Diet recommends ~15-20% of calories from carbs, which is... (more)
Hey guys, so I'm very new to Paleo and Cross fit. Actually I've only really been doing it for a week now. However, I've noticed that my calves are feeling very weak. I can't run as far as I used to because my legs get too tired. I know that I am... (more)
Hi , I'am 18 , and I'am ibs sufferer, so I have been pale for 2 months, so I've cut off grains,dairy,sugars and legumes... The problem is that since the beginning of spring I feel VERY weak. During the winter I have been sleeping very little,... (more)

I used to wake up early without any problem , now I'm in my 4th week of paleo and it's getting harder to sleep less then 7 hrs. Everything else is OK, except that sometimes I feel weak most of the day, like my muscles are tired. I tried few times... (more)
Ok that's rhetorical but I've really been impressed lately by how totally failing to thrive most of the conventional physicians I know are. Is this anecdotal support for the failure of our mainstream medical model? Do you find the same or do you... (more)
I've noticed that since I started low-carbing (and now even lower carbing with Paleo) I experience almost-daily random episodes of sudden weakness accompanied by moderate seizures of anxiety. They never last long (maybe ten minutes), and in... (more)
I have been using computer almost for 20 years on a regular basis and never before had any particular problems. Of course it doesn't mean I am a pure computer geek. I always have been also active physically, some backyard sports like basketball,... (more)
