My Leptin Reset

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

emoticonA short recap of what the program is as I understand it:

For 6-8 weeks follow a strict paleo diet as follows:
Eat 50g of protein (little to no carbs) within 30 minutes of waking
Limit carbs to 50g a day
Eat 3 meals a day, no snacking especially past 7:30pm
Meal timing should be roughly 6:30am, noon and 6:30pm
Stop all aerobic exercise

Begin weight training when the answers to these questions are all yes:
Do you notice you sweat more and have less muscle fatigue when you do exercise now?
Have your carb cravings gone away?
Is your hunger under control now?
And are you waking up more refreshed?
