I have been preparing for a jiujitsu tournament that will take place on March 29th. I have been mostly Paleo for a while; eat lean protein with every meal, and no grains except for occasionally a bowl of morning muesli (oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit). I have to lose several kilos in order to make my weight class, so for the past couple weeks I have been monitoring my diet strictly and trying to only get my carbs through vegetables (with every meal) and sometimes fruit (post-workout). I felt great for the first 10 days of eating like this and exercising vigorously (6 conditioning Crossfit type Metcons per week, 3 days of BJJ grappling) until just a couple days ago.
I can literally feel the low amounts of energy and power in my legs as I walk up stairs, and my overall energy is just down. Luckily it is the weekend, so I haven't missed out on any workouts or anything. Anyways, I got online last night and started reading about glycogen in the muscle tissues and how they must be replenished, but how?
Basically my question that I'm asking is how can I replenish my glycogen stores and get that fuel back in my body, yet still try and lose fat for this competition. I'm not anti-carbs, by any means, just looking for some direction...
