Leptin Reset Experiment starts today - Jack Kruse style
I have been doing a ton of reading since starting this primal journey. I love that I am reading out of my comfrot zone of knowledge and exercising my brain such a perk to the journey.
Jack Kruse's blog [url=http://www.jackkruse.com]- Jack Kruse[/url], and in particular the leptin information has really resonated. I decided to experiment and try to reset my leptin sensitivity. I will be blogging all about the experience, along with what I eat, pics, thoughts, results, etc every evening on my blog [url=http://kymmascombobulation.blogspot.com/]Kymma's Combobulation[/url]. The first post will be published this evening after dinner for those of you who may be interested.
A short recap of what the program is as I understand it:
For 6-8 weeks follow a strict paleo diet as follows:
Eat 50g of protein (little to no carbs) within 30 minutes of waking
Limit carbs to 50g a day
Eat 3 meals a day, no snacking especially past 7:30pm
Meal timing should be roughly 6:30am, noon and 6:30pm
Stop all aerobic exercise
Begin weight training when the answers to these questions are all yes:
Do you notice you sweat more and have less muscle fatigue when you do exercise now?
Have your carb cravings gone away?
Is your hunger under control now?
And are you waking up more refreshed? (from my Whole30 experience, I expect this to be end of week 2 or by mid-week 3)
