Bonking happens when people typically feel as if their energy source has been abruptly disconnected. What’s happened is that some combination of your blood sugar, fluid, and electrolyte levels have dropped below the critical threshold needed for vigorous activity (due to low carbs).
Low carb days don't bother me at ALL..I eat bbq chicken, smoked salmon and cream cheese, caesar salads with no crutons, tofu, turkey meat, tuna, eggs. LOVE all that. Just found the nutrition information on here for "tailgate cole slaw" from Whole Foods, which I Looovveee...I thought there might be a ton of sugar in it, but appears not. So, I have that, too
Hi all Moving along with my new plan of carb cycling. did three very low carb days and then had a high one which ended in a Halloween candy raid. I didn't bring enough lunch to work. Learned a few things
Carbs make me bingey (will try to do better next "up" day) High carbs don't mean CHEAT day I'm scared of carbs. Healthy ones.
I'll have to work on all these
What is BONKING? I know it's the result of too low carbs for too long. If it's that buzzy headed feeling, dry mouth, eyes, and skin, low energy and STOPPED metabolism and weight loss (exaggerating on the former but literally on the latter..weight loss) then I had that and that's why I went to carb cycling. I was doing straight up low carb before that
Also, what's "no" carb? Like less than 20 or something? Or LITERALLY NONE? Thanks. I've ordered some books recommended on here so I'll have more knowledge soon. Til they get here, "you're it" for my info sources. THanks
