Tell me more about this extended fast..
@enhanced Well I have always known about the benefits of fasting intermittently, and have read some of the effects of longer fasts on catabolism, muscle sparing and inflammation markers. However, I was not aware that the autophagy that takes place can actually clear out so much of the lipids and what not. @Hyde
discusses a little in his log about what he is doing, but he posted up this youtube video that explains a bit more.
It is amazing when you get older how you think about every movement you make ! It like life in slow motion !
No doubt. I am definitely going to get back into some odd object training and whatnot to get my body better at working at imperfect angles, and uneven weights. Get stronger in all positions again.
Yesterday was an easy day. Just a few 10 minute walks, and no other training. I wanted to give the lower back some time to recover before doing a pull workout. I am feeling pretty good this morning. Going to go out to train here in a bit, and will post up workout after.
My plan as of now is to go keto starting Monday, then Wednesday I will have some BDay cake with Sage for their birthday and that will be my last meal for at least 76 hours but the goal is until Monday morning. I went and found a recipe for the Snake Juice as he calls it, a combination of salt, potassium chloride and a little epsom salt. I will be drinking that to keep electrolytes up.
Spoke a little with @Hyde
about my bloodwork. Once I finish the fast, I will be taking in more fruits, veggies and other higher fiber complex carbs. Will also increase cardiovascular activity levels to complete the correction. No plans at this moment to lower testosterone. Just correct the lipids via diet and cardio, and take advantage of the testosterone levels for now since he said my estradiol looked in great for current testosterone levels. Other than that my doc is filling out and sending my phlebotomy work to the blood center. So I will be doing a double RBC donation next week which should take a chunk out of that HCT.
Seeing the bloods just gives me more motivation and turns up the heat on my efforts. Fix the lipids and HCT, and take advantage of cruise levels of testosterone. CHECK!!!!
