Hello everyone, Iam so pleased to be part of this community. This is my first contribution and I have read so many articles and it helped me alot through my rather short experience with keto. I will cut to the chase and layout my brief story and question.
This is my 4th week on keto. Iam a female 150cm and as of now 48.5 kgs i have such a small body frame but my genetics are not serving me the best of what is there. I primarly hoard my fat in the lower section of my body. I regularly exercise and do weight lifting ( barbell squats, deadlifts, shoulder presses, the usual)3-4 days a week, i walk alot everywhere i do cardio once a week just running i used to do hiit but i don’t do it anymore.
So my question is i feel tired and hungry in this 4th week which is not usual for me. I naturally fast (lol) i don’t eat untill 3-5pm before i go to the gym just a quick sth like eggs and cheese or eggs and avocado or nuts. After the gym i have my big meal chicken/beef alot of fat olive oil or coconut oil or butter. I also eat a big salad mainly lettuce and spinach. Sometimes i eat veggies like cucumbers and tomatoes with the food. I eat dessert keto home made mainly almond flour and the usuals cocoa powder zero sugar chocolate and whipped cream these are the ingredients i use and that is it for me this happens usually around 9-10pm after iam done with the gym my work and cooking. I usually eat between 900-1400 depending on the day which is not ideal but i have a calorie phobia Iam a phd student so this works best for me.
Why am i tired? I used to be tired when i fasted with a high carb diet. Then i switched to keto. I stopped being tired now iam tired again.
I hope someone can give me an insight.
