View Full Version : Low Carbing and Sickness

Eversince I started low-carbing it seems that I get sick often. Nothing major just the minor cold and sore throat. Does low carbing lower your immune system or there's no such connection? By the way, I do low or no carb for 6 days then carb up day 7 and calories are about 600-700 below maint. during the week.

ive been on a ckd for a month now and i just got hit with a cold this weekend. i think it has to do with the restricted calories and the lack of nutrients in your diet. my only suggestion is to take your multis, vit c, and rest as often as you can.
