Hey Chris (and all),
As it stands, my diet falls under 35g of carbs on most days, the vast majority of which comes from leafy veggies and nuts. Other than that, it’s pretty much healthy fats and lean meats (and Metabolic Drive)… and I’ve never, ever felt better. I’m getting leaner by the day, I have loads of energy, I find it much easier to concentrate in class, and I don’t have any cravings for carbohydrates. I really just don’t yearn for them and haven’t since starting to live the “V Life”.
My issue is that I haven’t been going to the bathroom regularly at all, and Metamucil/loads of veggies/anything else really, isn’t helping all that much. The one thing I know gets me moving and regular, though, is chicory root (inulin), the kind found in Fiber One bars/yogurts.
The bars are loaded with sugar and crap and never used to satisfy me, but the yogurt on contains 4g of sugar in a container and only 13g carbs total. Would adding in a couple yogurts a day send me spiraling in the opposite direction/should they be okay to eat following this particular type of lifestyle?
