    Kruse recommends upping the intensity of exercise once patients can answer yes to his questions, implying that they were doing some kind of moderate exercise to sweat to. I took it to mean move slowly/and maybe moderate lifting.

    Anybody know if K-bell swings would be considered aerobic? Because I'd really like to add them back in if they're not.

    Holy moly, it was the biggest breakfast ever
    That was my reaction exactly. I did two days on eggs and bacon and then switched to top round steaks (cheap, but much more protein).

    I'm annoyed because I can't decide if Kettlebell swings fall under aerobic exercise (I huff and puff a lot when I do them).

    Erm. Looks like that was given as the reason for no snacking - not for no breakfast.

    Was it? Hopefully DFH will let us know for sure as I wasn't positive.

    Wait, that's not what it said. You eat your big protein right away.

    I wasn't sure because of this paragraph below - took it to mean no food for 3 hrs upon waking.

    "For the first three hours after waking, your body refuels using insulin. You are not losing weight right then. You want this to settle down. Snacking disrupts it and fatigues the pancreas."

    OK. I went back to the source to get the exact context. I think I screwed up. It said eating, not waking. This is under rule #2, eat three meals a day, and allow 5-6 hours between meals.

    Exact quote this time-

    The first 3 hours after eating, your body refuels under the influence of insulin, like filling up at a gas station....

    ...Three hours after eating, insulin levels should be lower. As insulin falls, glucgon rises. This is a true fat-burning time..."

    Then they discuss the liver going to work maintaining blood sugar by using glycogen, and converting protein and fat to fuel.

    Then they go on about how snacking screws this up because you are making insulin all the time (insulin resistance comes next).

    Thanks - makes sense now. So a good reason to not snack between meals.

    Right, I was skipping back and forth between rule #2, (no snacking) and rule #4 (high protein breakfast), and messed that up.

    I also didn't mention that they like whey protein isolate for breakfast, which I totally disagree with. I think that is why my trigs jumped up at my last checkup.
