reason you can not shit is because of excessive adrenaline and low serotonin from low carbs causing your intestines to come to a grinding halt, plus you are not eating 3-4 servings of greens a day for proper fiber intake. trust me ZMA will help pull you out of this slump. your forgetting sodium, potassium, chloride, also are electrolytes. Are you also taking BCAAS as well plus creatine? I would suggest your Dietican to re examine the programs he puts people on because he's causes excessive stress to adrenals and thyroid as your labs are reflecting.
Here is my diet:
meal #1 - 4 servings meat, 2 fat, 1 fruit, 1 carb, 1 milk
#2 - 4 meat, 2 fat, 1 fruit, 1 carb
#3 - 5 meat, 2 fat, 1 veg, 1 carb
#4 - 4 meat, 3 fat, 2 veg
#5 - 5 meat, 3 fat, 3 veg
Totals - carbs = 120g, Protein = 141g, fat = 60g
5G of fish oil / day
During workout 5-6 servings BCAAs during workout (Xtend). No creatine.
Calcium - 1.2-1.8 G / day
mag - 450 mg
Zinc - 20mg
C - 2-4 G
E - 800mg
D - 2.5 G
