I awoke this morning without an alarm, after my regular 6.5 - 7.0 hours of sleep.
I felt very tired throughout the day (like I wasn't controlling my blood sugar well). No, I'm not a diabetic, but I know what sugar crashes feel like. I felt particularly tired in the afternoon at work, and after dinner. BTW, that big smoothie was half after breakfast, then the other half in the afternoon. (No smoothie or fruit after dinner, only the butternut squash with dinner).
Looking at my foods for the day:
67% Fat, 16% carb, %17 protein of 2,400 calories.
I guess I haven't been doing a good enough job of being anal with my food diary because there were periods during my 2 months of paleo where I felt really tranquil, steady, well rested (and not yawning).
I know I need a tweak.
Question: should I increase my carbs or decrease my carbs?
PS: I should say I'm 5'10" male, 188 (lost 10 of the 20 I want to lose). I didn't work out yesterday or today. When I do, it's nothing too strenuous: maybe 30 minutes on the elliptical or 30 minutes swimming), or light weights at the gym.
