The body will down regulate metabolism when food is in short supply. This means when you eat less, you will move less. It’s a survival mechanism to conserve energy. If one knows this, then one knows how to trick the body a bit by forcing the metabolism up.
Today’s set for me is fasting till sundown (last meal was last night’s dinner) and staying modestly active.
- 3 sets of 20 hindu pushups as sprints…30 sec rest in between
- 2 sets of turkish getups (5x with 12kg each for holding weight overhead with right arm and left arm)
I’ll continue to be active around the house drinking lots of water. Later today, I’ll finish up with a hike in the Marin Headlands with family, friends, and dogs. Dinner will be very, very welcome!
