I am asking this out of curiosity...I have a background of long distance running. Since establishing the Primal lifestyle I have cut back on the cardio and started heavy lifting. I have intentionally put on some muscle. I still work out most days of the week (45-75 minutes, intervals, weight lifting but also a good amount of steady state cardio - but I can jog a 9 minute mile and keep my heartrate at 70% heartrate, so I do not overdo it). As I don`t have experience with longer periods of no endurance exercise and still have a tendency to use running as an excuse to snack more than I should I would like to ask out of curiosity how decreasing the time spent on endurance exercise affected your weight/body composition (to those who did it)? Did your calorie intake change?
No announcement yet.
Did you gain weight when you started doing less cardio?
