I'm on my 5th week of paleo. The first few days were rough, but I remember feeling EXCELLENT by the 4th or 5th day. I did feel a drop in strength, but after introducing a few sweet potatoes before/after workouts I had tons of energy and felt lean and unstoppable.
But the last week or two just hasn't been the same. I don't really feel any more energetic than before I started paleo, and the 'high' is gone. I'm thinking of tweaking my diet to be more like the first week or two (i.e., very low in carbs), but I'm afraid I'll always be chasing the dragon. Anyone else feel like this? Anyone get back that high?
I should note that I'm happy with paleo's positive effects so far: better skin, better sleep, better digestion. FYI: my diet before paleo was very healthy -- whole foods, etc, and I'm not trying to lose weight, rather, I'm trying to put on some additional lean muscle mass.
