Bom, nas teorias que escutei eles falam que não era pra atrapalhar o e desempenho nos exercícios. Não li esse livro que vou recomendar, mas ele é bastante aclamado pela comunidade low carb:

Mas lógico, se você tentou e não se sentiu confortável faça o que é melhor pra você. E no mais, obrigado pelas dicas e recomendações.

E uma dúvida, como fica seu cardápio ao longo do dia?

I don't have the answer, but I'd look to this for answers:

in case the link is not visible, its Dr Jeff Volek's book "The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance"

Not an expert, but if you do want to read up on some Keto Sports Science, this book is quite good (though not the most interesting read probably)

I read through it and while it's not super exciting, it's very interesting.

To help avoid keto flu, the first week or so, add (1/4 tsp) lite salt & (1/2 tbsp) magnesium citrate to your water two or three times a day, or as needed, and that will help a lot to keep electrolytes up, also spinach & avocado help too. I have this once a day normally now. If you experience a hypoglycemic episode (the worst I had of keto flu) while you adjust to low carb, I found downing electrolyte water & eating bit of peanut butter, berries, &/or greek yogurt help since they're a little higher carb but still workable into your macros. Also if workouts seem harder, don't be afraid to take it easy for the first week or two while your body adjusts to not running on carbs. I find a pre-workout snack like chia seed pudding or eggs help my muscles from feeling dead but I'm working on getting back to fasted runs. A book that I just got in the mail so cannot recommend personally but I've seen recommended quite a bit is The Art & Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance [amazon ], so you might be interested in that.

Btw, I think this would be a pretty decent book for you to read -

GP describes the keto diet, which worked for me too. About the cholesterol, better read up on it. The hype about cholesterol has gone out of control. There are multiple types of it, and earlier research wasn't as conclusive as everybody thought. (Just like saturated fats by the way.)
