I'm back to maintenance. By maintenance I mean that I mostly still eat very low carb, but now I can have an orange. I love oranges :D In short, now I am up to something like 50-75g carbs per day unless I don't feel like eating carbs, in which case I don't. I'm just not worrying about ketoadaptation. On race days I am eating more carbs because I will be eating maltodextrine-based gels and protein recovery drinks. It's probably not as good as being ketoadapted, but I have a hard time staying in ketosis long enough to be ketoadapted for sure and I get terrible stress related ulcers on race days because I am a headcase, so I can't eat real food and have to eat protein drinks or gels.
I just thought I'd let you all know that :) I have NO desire to eat grains, pasta, bread, or anything like that.. yick!
