Apocalypse Training - Or Just Low-Carb Flu?

In this article on Survivalblog, the author discusses all of the physical symptoms they went through while they participated in a 7 day "bug out challenge".

They limited their caloric intake and exercised heavily.

I'm already doing a lot of physical labor each day and burning a lot of calories, and the symptoms they describe were EXACTLY what I faced when I quit consuming sugar cold-turkey.

My premise is that it's not the bugout challenge that was stressing their bodies, but rather the lack of carbohydrates and the abrupt change in their diets.
