It can seem overwhelming at times. You don’t know what to do first, is it correct and how do you know?

Let’s look at nutrition, it’s a minefield out there, where to begin?

Making Changes – What’s your output?

First off what are you outputting? Are you running three marathons a week or sofa surfing?

I’ve seen many people crash and burn who train hard then ramp up the routine. Say for a competition, they often neglect the nutrition which of course needs to meet training requirements.

So if you’re training as a hobby 2-4 hours a week. Then simply clean up your food, eat non processed food and cut out the rubbish, you know what that is.

Making Changes – Fuel source

Let’s be clear, I’m no expert though I do deal with lots of people training hard and helping them find the correct balance. We do ok.

I always start with this. What are your ratios of carbs, protein and fat?

We work on this for some weeks until we find good energy levels

Then we add fasting, super simple. Don’t eat after 6-7pm and breakfast 9-10am

Making Changes – Repair time

So while your fasting/sleeping your body has time to recover. This is when the important work is done.

Increase in muscle mass from fasting has been well documented and the evidence is available on that.

While fasting/sleeping your body goes through various stages of repair and recovery that are important if you are training hard. Even if you’re not, it’s important.

Making Changes – Takes time

This is where most fail. It takes time.

Let’s say you have been living in doughnuts and coffee for 10 years. Then every cell in your body has been created from that fuel source. It’s going to take time to change and the effects will be small over time. Sometimes so small you won’t feel it. That doesn’t mean it’s not working.

Every single cell in your body will regenerate in the next seven years. You are physically a completely different person. Eating well and looking after yourself is not a quick fix. Eat well for the next 10 years and every single cell you are made of has been made on a different fuel than the doughnut 10.

Hopefully you feel amazing, either way, you are building a Formula 1 car not a banger racer that you scarp after one race.

Daily Fasting

So a little update on how my fasting is going

It’s still early days but I feel great, I’m averaging 13-14 hours fasting from 7 pm to around 8.30am  the next morning and this is what I have discovered so far.

See the pic below, I’ve been tracking my fasting with this great app, Zero

I rarely feel hungry which is not what I expected, now first thing in the morning I have adjusted to eating earlier than normal or I seem to have an energy crash so a couple of eggs, rye bread and spinach it is.

Later a shake with veg and lots of good fats followed by a light meal salad etc then my main meal by 7 pm.

All my meals are low carb lots of good fats, now Paula has been doing this with me and she is experiencing similar results especially the not being hungry bit.

I’ve dropped a few KG but that’s not why I did this and I’ve not really weighed myself but I know my body and my pants are looser.

Well that’s it for now, I’ll be sticking with it until summer and seeing how I feel so more later

Information Is Cool

Acting On It Is Cooler

So since listening to Dr Rhonda Patrick (Video attached) what changes have you made?

Me personally, I instantly switched to circadian rhythm restricted eating. My last meal 7 pm and breakfast at 8 pm so 13 hours fast.

4 days in and I feel great, I’ll update soon as its early days

I also purchased 1kg of broccoli seeds and began sprouting, I have 200g nearly ready to add to my shakes. 50g a day with my regular shake is my aim, again I will update as I’ve not yet started the sprouts, tomorrow maybe

I have also been looking into high-intensity intermittent training deeper after listening to a Tim Ferris podcast, with Dr Martin Gibala, very interesting indeed.
So I’m off to Colorado in April for around 45 hours on the slopes snowboarding. The next 8 weeks I will be working 3 sessions a week to see what condition I can get into for what will be a gruelling week on the slopes

Change Your Life and of those around you.

I will update on my progress and I’d be interested to hear yours, if you haven’t listened to the podcast then be sure to do so, it’s amazing. If you have listened but not made any changes yet, then what are you doing on this planet, you crazy person?
