I was sleepy (groggy but cannot nap) and my head feels like it's stuffed with soggy cotton balls.
I think it's the "post-vacation eating plan blues".
I did not eat badly on vacation. It is difficult to eat low-carb on vacation. I ate plenty of veggies and fruit, but indulged in wheat and other higher carb goodies on days that I knew I'd be walking.
But the first few days of low-carb (I'm shooting for under 75 net grams of carb per day) I feel a little mentally out of it. I don't hit ketosis until around day 3 of under 50net, so I'm not planning on that. Friday and Saturday I'll knock it back to 30net, then increase it again for the week.
I am committed to eating a good mix of fruits and vegetables - and I can't do that on an "Atkins Induction" sort of plan. Anything under 100 net grams of carbs is considered "low" and my endocrinologist put me at 135.
