Tuesday, January 06, 2015      1 comments

I have been doing some reading & It is recommended that you don't over exercise as we release cortisol, a stress hormone & insulin. When we release insulin, the body stores fat. I read similar a while ago but it was mostly about cortisol. I... Read more

Only down 400g (little under a pound) this week. I didn't think I had lost much, I couldn't feel much change in my clothes etc. I guess to loose slowly is a good thing as it is meant to reduce the chance of yoyo dieting & starvation mode. I just... Read more

Protein power

Saturday, September 08, 2012      2 comments

Pigged out yesterday. Seem to be quite poorly controlled when I'm really tired. I guess that's reasonable & forgivable. I was so tired, but if I had a nana nap, then that night I wouldn't be able to sleep. I did have a power nap, but that was it... Read more
