If you are metabolically damaged, due to over- exercising and under eating for a prolonged period of time (or post physique comp) you need to start with light exercise e.g. walking, corrective exercise (Self Myofascial Release) and core stability work. Generally you need to establish your base calorie needs, your basal metabolic rate and total daily energy expenditure. Then figure out what your current goals are- body re-composition, performance in the gym or muscle gains and manipulate your macro ratios to provide the basis for attaining these goals. Sports nutrition (i.e. nutrition to improve or maintain performance) is NOT the same as nutrition to illicit body re-composition (i.e. reduction in body fat %).
If you decide to go down the low carb route for fat loss, don’t be surprised when you experience gastrointestinal problems upon reintroducing carbs to your diet. This is common and a normal reaction as you have down regulated the production of the enzyme amylase (in its various forms) during your low carb diet. Amylase is the enzyme responsible for breaking down carbohydrates. When you abstain from eating carbs the production of this enzyme, amongst others, is down-regulated as they are surplus to requirements. That means that digestive support is needed when you are moving from a low carb diet to a moderate/high carb diet, the same applies in relation to moving from a low fat diet to a moderate/high fat diet, or moving from vegan to omnivore. In the absence of the digestive stimulus you’ll have reduced your ability to digest these foods so ease back into it gently and take a good broad spectrum digestive enzyme to help with breakdown.
