Carbs

I think I have a sensitivity to carbs. When I eat carbs, I put on A LOT of weight. I had dieted down to about 275 and was pretty happy but was feeling a bit stuck so I thought I would hire a nutritionist. In this small town I am working in, there just isnít a lot of choices. So, I hire this lady who seems like she knows whatís up but I knew something was off.

She didnít really listen to me. I told her I donít do carbs because they make me gain so much water but she insisted and now, I am right back at 301 pounds. My body composition hasnít really changed and I am sure most of it is water but I am so uncomfortable. It literally feels like a whole body pump this morning and it doesnít even feel real.

Anybody got any ideas on this carb issue? It seems like if I eat carbs for a week or so I put on a ton of weight. IS everyone this way or am I some sort of weirdo?

PS, I am going back on my diet.

I must say right away that I am not an expert, and you did the right thing by first deciding to see a doctor. I can only talk about my experience.
After completely giving up carbohydrates, I go through a period when I eat only carbohydrate foods for a long time. I don’t know how you are with the restriction of products, but if I start to limit myself in something, then it always ends badly. You just need to know the measure and eat a little below the norm, but regularly - then your body will not make reserves, because you consume enough carbohydrates.
In any case, you need to drink water, and at first you will swell, but then you will get used to it and you will feel better.

You had to be eating some type of carbs before ir you'dhave been like a zombie walking around. So what changes did she make in your diet? I know i eat a lot of rice, sweet potatoes and potatoes. So what changes were made tgat was different from before. Also when you carb load, which is basically what happened compared to your previous diet you know your body will blow up, but then eventuallystabilizes itself as it adjusts the amount of water retention caused by the carbs. So my second question which you may have answered in your op is how long has it been since youve added the carbs?

According to NASM at 300 pounds bodyweight (136 kg) and doing physique training for an hour a day you could range between 272-680 grams of carbs per day and be healthy. How many grams a day does she have you eating? Does she have you hitting at least 300 grams protein per day at your weight?

I canít do 300 grams, it makes me swell. It doesnít happen all at once but for example: I donít drink but when I did, I only drank whiskey because, no joke, I could drink a 6 pack of beer and the next day my eyes are swollen and my hands are so swollen that I would have trouble closing them. She had me working in just under 300 and usually keeping most of that earlier in the day but it isnít working for me. I know most people probably donít have this issue or even understand it but its real for me. I am trying to understand the why of it. I pretty well stay with a keto lifestyle all the time but when these things happen, it reminds me why I do this.

A zombie? No bro, I donít eat carbs. I donít eat sugar or carbs. Not a little. Now, maybe I eat some cabbage and lettuce that have carbs in there are maybe there are a couple of net carbs so I can accept that but I donít eat potatoes, breads, pasta, rice... nothing. Maybe it was the influx of carbs that caused a dramatic shift but I tell you this, I woke up and weighed 7 pounds lighter 24 hours later. Iím not sure what it is and this is why I am asking.

What carb sources was she pushing? Could it be some kind of allergy? Can you eat fruit?

I guess everyone is different. My body thrives on carbs.
I have a fast metabolism and if I don't eat plenty of carbs I feel like shit and have zero energy.
Never had a problem holding to much water from carbs or blowing up with water weight.

You have to be eating some type of carbs, your brain needs carbs to function properly or like roughrydr stated you'd be walking around like a zombie.

Don’t talk to me about carbs. I have a PET scan today and I followed a low carb diet for two days. I have zero energy. I don’t have a known intolerance to carbs but to gluten. Tests revealed it. I don’t have coeliac disease but when I eat bread I’m bloated and that sucks.

I cut grains from my diet a few weeks back for the first time. I dropped a ton of water and look much leaner. Have to eat a shit ton of veggies and fruits to keep my energy up enough though
