If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know all about my morning routine: water first, light exposure and movement. But, what you may not know is how this MORNING routine actually benefits my SLEEP!
My ‘How to’ blogs offer you practical advice that you can easily apply to improve your health and fitness.
Here’s what you’ll find in this post;
Switching to a Low Carb Lifestyle (LCL) is a tricky process, and success will only come if you take the time to allow the habits to form. When it comes to nutrition, too many people dive straight into the deep end, unprepared, unaware and uneducated, which leads to them giving up before they experience the benefits.
Are your feet the problem?
Our feet are made up of multiple small bones and joints which throughout the day are put under immense pressure. As we walk on a variety of surfaces in all types of footwear our feet adapt with each step. Over time our feet lose Mobility due to our sedentary lifestyles and stiff footwear which leads to all sorts of problems up and down the body.
The female body is magnificent and complex, which is why the fasting protocol should occasionally be adapted to their needs. It’s important to understand that your hormones change throughout your menstrual cycle, and so should your diet and training.
Who shouldn't fast
Fasting isn’t for everyone, but I believe our ‘skipping a meal’ protocol is safe for most when they follow our guidelines.
Fasting for performance
Here's a quick overview for those of you looking to maximise your performance whilst fasting:
1. Depends on your level of performance, but 8-10 hours fasting is suggested.
Fasting for lean gains
Here's a quick overview for anyone looking to MAXIMISE their lean-gains whilst fasting:
1. Aim for 8-10 hours of sleep.
Training whilst fasted
You can train while fasted, but as we mentioned, you must allow your body the time it needs to adapt. The adaptation phase usually takes around two weeks, during which time you’ll possibly feel a little less “able”.
Food is thermogenic and therefore you’re likely to feel colder during your fasting hours. We recommend drinking plenty of hot beverages and even adding some warm water with lemon into the mix along with a few extra layers, especially during the colder months.
