Thank God we have short straight intestinal tracts, right? Wrong!! Nothing could be further than the truth. Our intestines are very long with many convolutions. We can pretend all we want, but we have the gut of an herbivore. Yes, we can eat some meat and all virtually all cultures on planet earth eat at least some animal foods, but dumping the typical low carb meal into our GI tract is simply fighting against Mother Nature. Your gut is cursing the darkness as this rancidifing, decomposing, lardy mass slowly scrapes its way through the many twists and turns of the small intestine. Many low carbers consume lots of heme iron, which is pro-inflammatory just to complete the package.
You aren’t seeing any results with your workouts, so why continue? What’s your goal? If it’s to lose weight then cut back on the workouts, do the diet and lose all your weight, then go back to your old workouts on maintenance and after the diet. Don’t keep doing what’s not working. I guarantee you are working out too much and not eating enough, putting you into starvation mode. Don’t over think the diet. Just do it as directed and get the results you deserve. Only changes should be made if you HAVE to workout, like for work. Sorry to be so blunt, but I can tell you are frustrated and I want you to get good results.
