Food & Exercise Diaries

Day 28 Food Diary (9/24)

Net calories – 1020

I actually managed to beat my protein record: I got 120g!

The bad news is, I nearly passed out during my lifting class. I have no idea what was wrong with me. It was really hot, and I kept blacking out and was sweating so much I couldn’t even grip the pull-up bar or barbell properly. I also felt like I was going to throw up at any moment. And it was deadlift day–I’d been looking forward to it so much!

I didn’t say anything about how dizzy I was, but the instructor even asked me if I’d eaten beforehand because I probably looked pretty haggard. The embarrassing part is it was one of the highest calorie days I’d had in a long while–shameful.

It was a gross, miserable experience and I hope it doesn’t happen again. 😦

  1. Hi there,
    What you are describing here could be the result of ketosis as well lactic acidosis. Have you considered incorporating peri-workout carbs?
    The carb+calorie restriction plus the dehydration during workouts could potentially be detrimental to what you are trying to achieve.
