Recently I have been experimenting with eating quite a bit of nuts, especially almonds, and as a result my macro nutrients are heavily loaded in fat (well, healthy type) and protein, and quite low on the carbs (I actually cannot make the minimum most days). My total calories consumed is usually in the upper end of my daily caloric allowance.
But I am surprised to see that I am not losing fat any more. What is more, I find myself reluctant to move in general, I feel kind of sluggish. Starting an exercise is more difficult than ever. And this is not only for one single day, most days have turned out to be like this.
Meanwhile, I came across the following article which demonstrates that at the same caloric intake, there is no advantage of low carb high fat diet, and actually may even be worse for fat loss: www.nature.com/oby/journal/v14/n8/full/oby
The journal is a very respected one.
Now I want to reintroduce the complex carbs, because it seems that actually I don't benefit from a low carb diet.
