In the book, Mastering Leptin - that DFH brought to our attention it states no breakfast 3 hrs upon waking:
Anybody know if K-bell swings would be considered aerobic? Because I'd really like to add them back in if they're not.
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).Holy moly, it was the biggest breakfast ever
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).
Richards says have protein breakfast.
This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Any given day you are surrounded by 10,000 idiots. Lao Tsu, founder of Taoism
"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."
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.
