    I have stairs in my house. And I try really hard NOT to use them haha. I guess I should make a point every day. That is something I could incorporate and not even notice the time and effort spent. Maybe I should start using the upstairs or downstairs bathroom?

    While all exercise will oxidize glucose to some extent, high intensity is defined by the production of lactate when you overwhelm the oxidative capacity of the muscles and instead of generating further energy from pyruvate ( the end product of glycolysis ) the excess pyruvate is converted to lactate which is shunted to the liver for gluconeogenesis.

    So, if you don't feel the burn ... well, you're not really at high intensity.

    Thanks for the English I was just thinking more along the lines of just a little extra something to do throughout the day. Like parking at the end of the parking lot sort of thing.

    The lactate is responsible for the burn isn't it? Or is that an urban myth?

    I'm all done.

    11 days of the potato diet (and one back to primal eating) and I'm down 4.2kg (9lb3oz). My tastebuds feel better adjusted to avoiding the sweet crap that I was falling for again, and I'm enjoying savouring my meat and veggies again. Strong black coffee tastes goooooooood again, not bitter.

    I wish I'd taken more measurements. I thought of waist etc after I'd already lost a couple of pounds. d'oh.

    I wrote up the experience at:

    It's a bit bonkers. I've never lost weight that fast, even when on a calorie-controlled high fibre diet. I'm kicking myself that I didn't take better measurements than just weight. From before/after photos (just updated in Evernote), seem to have lost at least some of it around the middle. Something approximating abs are starting to show a little.

    Anyhow, now I'm back on the wagon and can get back on track with my powerlifting and running with plenty of protein to make up for anything lost.
