I did a straight ketogenic diet for a few months. <20g carbs per day, most days I was under 10g. Occasionally I even did zero carb. Cut out sugar completely. Almost entirely cut out vegetables -- I still ate some leaves every now and then.

As a result, my energy levels tanked. I mean, low-carb diets are pretty great because there's always energy there if you need it, but I no longer had access to that wellspring of energy that made me spontaneously exercise.

Mental clarity went waaaaaay down. Still better than if I ate carbs, but I no longer had that extreme focus / elevated consciousness thing.

Probably worst of all, my depression came back. This one thing has been fucking everything else in my life up lately, as it does every time it's reared its ugly head over the last 8+ years.

Anyway over the last week I've transitioned back to what I was doing before. Still the same protein/fat-based diet, but wayyyyyy more vegetables and some leniency towards sugar (<40g, more if there's naringin involved). Still avoiding starch, ice cream, high-fructose fruit and milk (all of which fuck me up in different ways). As a result, I gained back all the crazy cool stuff I had at the start of this diet. Head's clearer, energy levels are way up, and even slight traces of depression are just GONE.

Anyway, I definitely needed to get my head in the right place. My job right now is giving me one day a week, which isn't sustainable in any way (I was barely able to afford food, insurance and gas with what they were giving me before). I had everything ready to try to find a tech job, but now I have to regroup to try to find something in between the two. Lack of energy/clarity and abundant depression was making that really fucking difficult.

Anyway things are looking up. Job prospects are looking good, got my daily routine fixed back up, been getting re-acquainted with everything creative I've ever done, and boy do I have some plans for this place.

Remember the eight training goal post that Apollo made 3-4 years ago here in this forum? You should have participated in that. A lot of us were and I was trying to convince my parents to let me diet even though I wasn’t even 110 pounds then. I like being extremely skinny.

Low carb diets are a bunch of nonsense. Your body needs sugar to run. Just don't eat crap and you'll be fine.
