This is my first post on MDA after being a regular reader for about 6 months. This subject have been discussed before, I searched some posts but found nothing that would easy my mind. Let me explain.
I am 23 years old and currently studying and training to become a firefighter in Sweden. This means I have been doing a lot of cardio and resistance training over the last year, but after reading more and more about the primal life style, I've cut down on the cardio and spend that time walking or cooking instead. Anything that feels productive. To finance my studies, I am working 6 days a week early mornings, starting at 04:00 and ending at roughly 06:00 delivering magazines, newspapers and alike. This means I have to wake up at 03:30 to be able to get to my district in time.
My question is what you guys think of doing this work for 120 minutes (ish, sometimes its a bit longer, sometimes a bit shorter) on an EMPTY stomach. Activity wise its just constant walking for 2 hours, and a lot of stairs. I do have a couple of pounds of unnecessary fat that I'd like to lose, but is the way I work counterproductive? As in, is it possible my body is not only using bodyfat as fuel, but also muscle tissue? Can I keep doing this (I don't feel the need to eat until I get home and after I've had my shower, so it's not like I am suffering and pushing myself through it).
I realise this was a long post, but I have been concerned with this for quite some time now and would greatly appreciete input and advice
