Well recently I've added more carbs in my diet, from about 80g to about 100-150g, I feel less emotional and have a better temper, I also think my hair doesn't fall off so easily anymore ( unsure if this is linked to higher carb though) I am very curious about my heritage being the reason I go better with carbs.
I was born in Australia, but I was brought up on typical German/Yugoslavian/Romanian food. So potatoes, sausages, cabbage, etc ( ah nostalgia ). My heritage is Romanian, German and Macedonian. I've been skinny all my life, and my bmi is about 10-15% ( healthy range 5-85%).
When I was lower carb I felt great at first, but after a few months I started loosing my temper and getting more emotional swings. I initially went higher carb because school has started again so it's a bit more convenient to pack lunch, but I found it has made my mood better too!
Before paleo my cholesterol was absolutely perfect ( funny tough because i don't think my diet was that great before). And after paleo my cholesterol is a bit high, hdl at 100 and ldl at 150. ( I assume this is from grain fed animal fats and too much nuts, or is this a sign i should change something? ).
So, out of curiosity, what are your macronutrient ratios, especially regarding fat and carbohydrates.
What sort of carbs do you eat?
Were you lower carb before but moved higher? If so, why and how has it helped you?
