Relax, Sort Of
It’s Sunday and my goal was to relax a bit (after a very long swim meet yesterday). I woke up feeling great after catching up on some much needed sleep. I did spend most of the afternoon catching up on work, but did manage to kick back and recharge in front of the tube for a bit.
I generally followed my version of Primal/Paleo today except for the indulgence in popcorn while watching a movie. I did pack my eating into about a five hour window, keeping my habit of intermittent fasting. I really believe the fasting and intense weight lifting keep my blood sugar levels low and my body in a ketogenic state. The more I research, the more it is clear to me that high glucose levels and the resulting over production of insulin has the potential to create excess fat and inflammation–the ultimate cause of disease (in my opinion).
I sure hope everyone had a great weekend and, as always…
Be smart in the kitchen and a beast in the gym!
