Thanks, Nat!

You're totally my inspiration. I've been reading your journal and I'm so glad you are a self-proclaimed OCD. Your attentiveness to details is answering most of my own OCD questions about starting BFL on LC. On Day 3 now...Rock and Roll! I've also visited your web page and all I have to say to you is...WOW! You should submit your pics to the official challenge and grab some prizes. Really.

All the best,
badgoat

Wow, Nat, thanks for posting this stuff. How did you know that I prayed for something like this in my prayers last night!

LOL, I nearly missed the first day of my challenge today going through some of these links. But I managed to tear myself away. It's about this addiction!!!!

I've been having great results following body-for-life by the book, but the diet is making my IBS symptoms worse. Consequently I'm thinking of switching to a low-carb diet but want to keep up the exercise and rest of the plan as much as possible. If any of you can answer any of the following it will help me work out my new diet regime in full so I don't mess it up!!

1) My IBS means I have problems with a lack of vitamins , especially iron and vitamin c, how do you get enough of the latter when cutting out fruit?

2) Do you just cut out the carb portion from each of the 6 meals or do you substitute it with something else/up the fat content of meals? If anyone can show me a sample diet sheet for a BFL day low-carb style I'd really appreciate it.

3) Does it affect your physical performance and can you go low-carb without going into ketosis - last time I did Atkins and went into Ketosis I couldn't keep up my fitness regime and lost alot of performance particularly on the cardio side.

4) Do any of you have problems finding space to fit all the water in - due to my IBS I shouldn't drink with food (should leave 30 mins before and 2 hours after food). If I eat every 3 hours this leaves only a 30 min window to down a load of water - which makes me feel a bit light-headed and swells me up like a balloon - suggestions?

5) (last one promise!) Have any of you made the switch during a 12 week challenge - anytips on how to make the switch and keep up the exercise would be much appreciated.

Couple things on IBS: Fish oil and glutamine are not only low-carb and fat-loss friendly, but also GREAT for IBS. Fish oil is anti-inflammatory, and glutamine helps repair the gut.

Iron is in beef (and I think spinach). Vitamin C is in orange peppers, and they are fairly low-carb. And there's always time-release vitamin C supps.

You can do low-carb without going into ketosis. And even if you DO go ultra-low carb, your body gets used to performing on fat after about 2-3 weeks. It's a little humiliating at first, but once you switch over to the different fuel system, you're fine. Just be sure to keep your fats up, especially fibrous fats like avocados. Fats REALLY need to be high - like, 60-70% of total cals. Otherwise, you'll really feel like crap.

Good luck! I've known quite a few people with IBS who have done really well on low-carb high-fat.

Thanks for the posts JackieO and built,

I stopped doing BFL a few months ago and am following a training and nutrition program from Global Health and Fitness (global-fitness.com) - the exercise regime is pretty similar but it's more flexible on the nutrition which is more practical for me.

I had to quit low-carbing too as my gut just does not tolerate fats, which as you say are essential for proper ketosis. Instead I eat low-fat, keep my carbs to just 175g per day with lots of protein which works to keep my blood sugar level. I've managed to lose 7 lbs although currently on a bit of a plateau.

A note of caution for any IBS sufferers using fish oils - if you just buy the normal cod liver oil from the health store it is full of toxic metals from the sea, which the fish has tried to eliminate through it's liver. These will just exacerbate IBS. I use a great oil called eskimo 3 which isn't taken from the liver.

I should clarify - when I suggest fish oil, I don't mean fish LIVER oil - I mean fish BODY oil. Fish liver oil is great, too, but it's for vitamin A. Fish BODY oil is for omega 3.

I know this is an old, old thread - I just wanted to thank whoever thought to put it all together and pin it up. It's a constant motivation for me and I refer to it often, 6 years after it was posted.
