Default Tired all day long from day 3-4

about 3-4 days after my refeed i start to get really tired, from wake up till sleepytime.
Especially my legs are dead (even before i had my leg training), too tired to go to the gym on my bicycle :P.
I know that its just because im so low on carbs, but is there some "turning point" where i will get more energy? or is it just downhill for the energy levels...? (at 1500kcal, <40gr carbs)

Did you check your blood works? I am anaemic and feel tiered like this most of the time, whatever diet am on whether high carbs or low carbs

when you initially went through adaptation to lowcarbs, did you notice the same 'lag' in feeling good?

in the first few weeks, yes it's exceedingly common, many feel as if they've been hit by a truck. if things haven't gotten better by about the 3 week mark, you may not be cutout for very lowcarb diets. some never seem to adapt

beyond that, make sure mineral intake is good, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium. helps with fatigue
