I’m 6 weeks into a low carb diet, and apart from one cheat meal a couple of weeks ago have kept my carbs under 20g and protein under 75, tracking macros every day in the keto app. I’m planning to take a break for Easter and then come back and try again. I felt good for the first month but now my sleep is terrible and I feel tired and constipated and haven’t lost for a while. I try to get as much green veg and mushrooms in as I can with the extra fat and also drink my water. I have been trying fybogel and macrogol to try and ease the constipation. I think I’m perimenopausal, which probably doesn’t help. I just don’t feel good and want to stop for a while, but still need to get on and lose a couple more stone. What can I do differently next time? Keto has worked well for me in the past, and I have enjoyed the energy and lack of hunger.
