My husband was VLC for about 9 days straight. He says he doesn't like the way he feels on it. After further discussion, I pull from him that he felt as though his body was eating at his muscles, close to his bone.
Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be the fat he feels? Should we put more veggies into his diet? He was eating probably 10-20g carbs a day, mostly at dinner. Help! He lost 9lbs and I like it!
Oh, and he was doing minimal exercise - just his day to day getting around.
definitely carb flu, it could last up to 3 months!!
Also when I'm deeply in ketosis I also get an aching in my bones, flu like as well. I try to just stay on the cusp of the line of ketosis, going in and out all the time, rather than deep into it for that reason.
