When that post workout HITS 👊🏽
Lately my body had been craving complex carbs so badly that I actually switched my eating routine to mostly eating at night as long as it’s within an 8 hour eating window...this is called IF.
I’ve been dialing in IF (intermittent fasting) & ketosis for the past 7-8 months on and off, and have found that at low low body fat percentages for extended periods of time it is very difficult to gain size and a lot of strength, however mobility and agility is increased.
Also with ketosis, one has to be cautious of overloading the kidneys with Ketones when you are primarily using your body’s fat stores as a fuel source as opposed to carbohydrates.
💧 It is primarily important to remain hydrated fully while doing this to avoid damaging the kidneys with toxins and allowing your body to properly “flush.”
Switching to mostly Vegan protein has also had its benefits and slight drawbacks. I have little joint pain and inflammation and have been able to properly source FULL spectrum complete proteins with Pea-Quinoa-Flax- with are the main ingredients in my Clean Vegan Protein, But also with complete grains like Organic whole oats/ quick oats, steel cut oats, buckwheat grout and even seeds/nuts (walnut, pumpkin, pecan, sunflower, almond)... 🌱 🌰
Beans (black, navy, pinto, kidney, adzuki) and lentils (legumes) can also aid a transition from a high volume of red meat. •
I still consume unprocessed cheese as a part of the ketogenic diet, minimal Greek yogurt, massive amounts of ice cream but mostly @Halotop
, eggs, salmon & chicken once a week. It’s a tough transition but slow and steady wins the race..
I’m trying to live to be 💯 ^^
