Second day! Upper Fix Extreme. I’m doing the 1200-1400 calorie level Countdown to Competition plan. It’s not for the faint of heart, and I may actually bump up a level due to my daily activity level. I was feeling pretty sluggish today but did a little better once I drank some Hydrate. Going low carb can make you a little shaky and low on sodium. Drinking something with electrolytes can help big time, but make sure it’s not something that has a ton of sugar or artificial junk. I highly recommend Beachbody’s Hydrate.
There’s plenty of food in this plan, just mostly protein and veggies. If you’re used to eating a good bit of carbs, you may go though a little ‘carb flu’ or sugar detox. It stinks for a day or so, but it’s a good thing!!! Hold on and be strong.
