I take rest days pretty often. At least two days a week, sometimes a week or more straight! I have a standing job for the most part so I don't have to fight too hard at getting activity in. I usually go to the gym after I clock out and do 15 minutes of compound lifts and/or bodyweight stuff. But days I don't work? I'm pretty lazy if I can be. I need it.
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
