Lea - are you sure it wasn't lack of salt making you stagger about and feel awful. Duda suggested that to me a few weeks back and when I thought about it I realised I'd had no salt the day before and with nothing processed, no added salt either. Just a thought.
Im not eating junk (chips sometimes when we go out and wine) but I don't feel so full that I want to skip any meals. I do think I'm eating enough fat. Too much and i need the toilet but i do get hungry late afternoon
Also in races I think even a lot of the low carbers take on carbs because they're accessed differently. I did a fasted 17 mile run last week which was ok but hot. Just took water and bought some more half a mile from home but I'm also trying to work out what to take on a long run when I want to put a bit of effort in. I think Iain Love or someone said bran syrup in a race? Will have to look that up.
I also wish there was a light bulk moment that said "you're fat adapted no"
HC - keep going. Next one will be better
Road to nowhere - you could try making several different low carb treats to keep at hand in your fridge, then if you're hungry you'll at least have a healthy snack. Some ice cream if you like that and fat bombs
