I want to find the limits of VLC athleticism.
Because I remember being somewhat unstoppable when high-carb in my early 20's, especially for simple things like lifting heavy stuff all day long and ridiculously long bike rides. And sprints, nobody ever beat me as a kid, I don't think, except older/taller kids. And I played hard, every day. But now at 31 it's easy for me to be lazy, and I want to find out if that's WHY low-carb has worked so well for me. It seems unthinkable that so many people who stumble in here have horrible VLC experiences, hair loss, cold, exhaustion, etc., while eating in a way that has given me back my youth. I need to control that variable, to find out if these people are just the unstoppable, exercise-addicted emotional trainwrecks they seem to be, or if I'm missing something. I'm going to work out every day, something intense, something that causes pain and adaptation, and try to break myself, I want to know what this upper limit is, because the more i exercise, the better I feel. I ran 1.5 miles today in 13 minutes and feel like a million freaking dollars. Took an icy shower right afterward, and am only slightly sore in my legs. Obviously, I'm not going to run again tomorrow, I'll probably do 700 push-ups or curl my 65 pound dumbells as many times as I possible can throughout the day. But so far, I've only succeeded in dropping two body fat percentages and feeling amazing. I'm missing something. Maybe I need to run three hours a day, every day, before something breaks. IDK.
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.
