    Leptin reset: Day 7

    1 week in, I've lost about 4lbs in weight, still got a cold and snotty nose and cought and shit. Going to carry on for another week with the meal timing as laid out in the leptin reset protocol and carry on just walking for excersie, going to spend this week doing a bit of reading on leptin, protien, meal timings and fasted work-outs but I'm probably going to implement the plan I laid out above as I can't see any problem in it and I'm missing my work-outs.

    Note: I'm finding it easy to go all day with-out food, and so I'm feeling I can eat a smaller (read more normal sized) evening meal - had roast chicken last night and didn't eat a massive amount by my standards - a propper plate full yes, and some second helpings, but the entire bottom of my plate was covered with greens.

      Leptin Reset: day 8

      carrying on as normal, big breakast, little work-out, cold nearly gone, nothing to see here. Although I am finding myslef sluggish after breakfast and not wanting to do much, whether this is down to haivng the cold or the way I am eating is unclear, but I think I would do better by eating later in the day. I think there is a tendacy to slow down and digest after a big kill, I mean big meal.

        Leptin reset: Day 9

        Decided yesterday to not follow the Leptin reset protocol to the letter when I felt it wasn't quite optimal, so I'm keeping what I think works and changing what I think dosn't work. I'm going to call the programm 'Robs Magic Panacea to make you thin and sexy and sucessfull and make anyone want to have sex with you' or maybe not.

        So my plan is this.

        Eat in a rough 8 hour window on work out days.
        Work out fasted then eat after.
        Big meal - lots of protien after work-out.
        A coffee with cream in the morning probably won't ruin everything.
        Normal evening meal.
        Probably fast 24 - 36 hours on rest days (though maybe not, and definatly only 1 36 hour fast a week)

        With that in mind I went for a run this morning, round the block and beat my last time by 2 mins then ate some cold meetza and cold pork and left over paleo pankake - NOM. Also been for a walk in the pissing rain with the little on so got my move slowly in too.

          Leptin Reset: Day 10

          Did some bodyweight excersies, was a bit pushed for time so was rather rushed, also did a lot of walking yesterday - 40 mins to garage and back in the morning before working out, also walked baby to sleep arround town, about 40 mins and walked to post-office and back, about 20 mins.

          Food - no time for lunch at home so had about half a hot chicken from saisburys and some macadamia nuts, bollock-naise for tea, with nuts and chocoltate for pudding (maybe too many nuts for the day)

            Leptin reset: Day 11

            Finding this eating twice a day thing is working well for me, appitite is under control and I'm enjoying being able to eat a big meal and feel propper full.

            Excersis wise went out for a short family walk, about a mile, carried the baby in arms most of the way round as I forgot to pack a sling, then we went to a park for 20 mins and I had a bit of a play, then I went for a 10 mile bike ride (actually 10.33 miles in 58 mins acording to my fancy ass new phone and sports tracker app). All before lunch - and I wasn't starving when I got back. Would say I'm fat adapted now . Big lunch of 6 eggs, 5 small sausages (just under half a pound) and quite a lot of bacon.

            Tea was pizza omlette, with bacon, paleo fudge for pudding

                Leptin Reset: Day 13.

                Not sure this is still leptin resetting, but what the hell
                Went for a run this morning in my skeletoes - so barefooting for the first time since hurting my achilles tendon. 1.8 miles in 16 mins, or something like that. no pain, felt good. Think I will start actal sprints soon - yay.
                Sticking to the 16 hour fasting window is proving easy, even with a run thrown in a few hours before I ate.

                  Leptin Reset: Day 14

                  I'm gonna stop calling this Leptin reset as I think it has worked and my appite is back under control and I'm losing body fat at a reasonable pace - two weeks in and I'm down about 8lbs which is amazing, hopefully this will contine and I can break that 15 stone barrier in a few more weeks. I'm actally looking forward to taking some photos at the end of the month as I'm sure there will be visable difference.

                  Yesterday I lifted my sandbag - managed 40kg overhead presses and 40kg lying presses, though sup 10 reps. Also did deadlifts, squats and vertical rows.

                  Then I cooked everyone breakfast - sasusages, bacon, fishfingers(kids ) and eggs.

                  After breakfast we did the weekly shop, I got some bio-diesil. Then went to the park, walked the baby for a bit, played, climbed some trees, jumped over stuff, walked a bit more. Had a little walk to the local shop in the afternoon as I forgot to get some cleaning stuff when we went shopping, spent a long time cleaing the windows and washing the body work, carrying hundreds of liters of water as I broke the hose connecter to the tap, and buffing it and using WD40 to get tar off the body.

                  Skipped lunch and ate a massive tea of streak strips with onions, leeks, and green all stir fried up with a cheese and cream sauce, then some pudding of chocolate, peaches in cream and some nuts and some dates I was still really hungry later - but when I ran through the day, I kinda figured it was not a suprise, I'd been active non stop, and the heavy lifting has really felt like it had burned me out of sugar and I hadn't replaced it at breakfast - didn't really have time, but I suppose I should have grabbed a banana or something. So I had a supper at about 8ish of a banana an apple and some nuts (cashews, hazels, brazils and almonds) in some greek yogert.

                      Saturday - a rest day, took the family out in the morning, then cleaned the car in the afternoon till it glowed, shampooed the seats, plolished it and photographed it, so and activish rest day. Fasted till tea time so about 20 - 22 hours. Had pizza omlette with bacon and some greens, with blended frozen bananas and rasberries with cream and tinned peaches for pudding (small serving) wasn't enough so ate nuts and yogert for supper again.

                      Sunday - Lovely sunny day, walk in the woods this morning at child pace, so a couple of miles in about an hour. Walked in my vivio barefoot shoes and had no achillies tendon pain so I recon that's healed up now.

                      Did 3 rounds of tabata intervals outside in the sunshine in short as sleevless top. Lots of jumping and burpees.

                      400g of chicken liver with onions for lunch (no breakfast except coffee and cream x 2) with creamy slighty spice sauce followed by some trail mix of nuts a few dried apricots, dates and some raisins with 25g of dark chocolate. I had a banana and peanut butter staight after my work-out too.

                      Got a massive chilli in the slow cooker for tea tonight in a couple of hours then planning on getting to bed early as didn't sleep too well last night.

                        Monday - Went for a walk first thing as I was feeling a bit sluggish, very nice brisk 20 mins covered 1.8 miles in fresh cold morning air.
                        Didn't eat till early afternoon after I'd done body-weight work-out. Didn't feel hungry till I ate - weird that. Ate 200g burger, and 2 eggs, then some nuts and yogert and dried fruit. Tea was sausage and steak with a massive pile of cheesey greens and some parsnip chips roasted in the oven.

                        I also washed the caravan today on the outside so was faily active while I scrubbed it down and was up and down a ladder so I could reach the roof.

                        Don't feel stiff at all this morning after bodyweight excersies - I did them as a circuit, 3 rounds, rather than sets. I don't feel stiff atall, but was really sweaty and out of breath while doing them, I starting to think that circuits work better for conditioning and sets build stenght better for me.

                        Reps as follows

                        Pull ups - round 1 - 10 chin ups (a personal best) round 2 - 6 pull-ups, round 3 5 pull-ups and 1 power hold 1 negative/
                        Push-ups - round 1; 26, R2; 27 R3; 7 super slow - don't know what was wrong here I normally max out at about 36 - 40 push-ups
                        Squat 3 lots of 50 squats
                        Knee raises 20,13,17
                        Pike press (windowsill) 12,10,8


                        I've been doing a lot of grease to grove pull-ups so that's clearly working, I think I need to do more of that with push-ups, maybe some sets of super slow ones.

                            Looking good my friend. Im not sure I could fast. i cut my meals from 6 to 4 to make it more efficient. Wouldnt mind gaining a few pounds, but at 6'1 200lbs, keeping the bodyfat in single digits has been fine just now.

                            Im not sure fasting and size gain go hand in hand. It seems it gives you the freedom to eat a little treat or two when you want.

                              you may be right about the fasting and muscle gain, but I have read that working iut fasted tells your body 'don't breakdown these muscles for energy, we are using them alot, go use all that fat instead' and at 6 foot I am aiming for 14 stone (196lbs) I recon i'll be 10-12% bodyfat at that point. That's another 23lbs to go.

                                Busy week, not had time to sit down at the computer much.

                                Tuesday - went for my bike ride before lunch after doing more caravan cleaning out in the morning (I think it was days ago now)
                                cover my 12 mile route in under an hour - I'm getting faster, and even though it was barely above freezing the sun was out and the sky was clear and I was wearing short YAY Think I ate a load of bacon and eggs for lunch and had turkey leg curry for tea and then some supper I think.

                                Wednesday - took a load of stuff to the tip, went to visit a friend in the afternoon - fasted till tea time but as we got back late it was all a bit manic and I snaked on some cheese, a spoon of peanut butter, some cold meat, some nuts, dried fruit etc while trying to sort out tea for the kids and putting something in the oven for the adults later. Didn't feel happy about that.

                                Thursday - Woke up feeling a bit under the weather, had a coffe, then after a bit of house work forced myself out for a run. Had a really good run. 2.97 miles in 28mins 30 seconds a personal best for that route and I broke my 10 min mile/6mph pace barrier. I had more in the tank too. Achiiles tendon was a bit (tiny tiny bit) tender afterwards but I did some stretching and tennis ball rolling of my arch and it seems fine. Gonna keep the distance the same for a couple of weeks so as not to put to much strain on the tendon - slowly slowly catchy monkey.

                                Back to my usal breakfast of 2 strips of steaky bacon, 200g mince made into burgers and 4 scrambles eggs, also had 2 coffes with cream today - think I need to cut them back a bit. But I noticed when getting out my my post run lovely hot bath that my abs are become more visable now, my gut is ab shaped rather than barrel shaped, just wish I could lose the moobs.
