I've been eating a paleo diet (plus heavy cream) for about 6 days now. I am very much in the "low-carb flu" stage at the moment - my previous diet consisting of mainly vegetarian food with lots of grains.
I go rock climbing and mountain biking regularly (once or twice a week each), but I haven't for a few days now - I went climbing on Sunday (indoors, at a gym) for a couple of hours, and felt really weak, no muscle endurance whatsoever.
I'm probably eating on average 50 - 100g of carbs per day.
In addition to climbing and mountain biking I walk every day for about 30-45 mins.
In this early, transitional stage, is it a bad idea to exercise? Or is it a good idea to exercise, but do I need some extra carbs before and/or after? Or should I just exercise and try and eat a normal (ie for paleo - 50 - 100g) amount of carbs and force my body to get used to it?
Your help is much appreciated, thanks :)
I remember how wasted I was when I went through that. Your body is adapting to a new fuel source right now ... give it a break and take a week or two off the other work you usually give it.
