Sorry I have been a bit slack writing any posts this week. I have just started a new job and have not been around very much but here I am!
Firstly, I have been water fasting all day every day and feeling great. Very productive and focused. Hopefully my new bosses will be impressed by my productivity :-) I also managed to do some exercise classes every day and my recovery is much better then I ever remember it.
One of the people I told about the Warrior Diet reckoned that my muscles will waste away and I will store what I eat as fat if I don't eat enough and regularly during the day. Now, I have heard his before and I used to believe it, or at least the science apparently made sense, I never questioned it.
But when you think about it...... "they" are saying is that if we eat too much; too many calories we get fat. OK, in that case I'll eat less during the day but no! If I eat too little in the day or skip meals, my body will burn my precious muscle tissue and store all my food as fat.
If this was the case, then surely when we ate too much our muscles would grow and we would end up like Arnold Schwarzenegger wouldn't we?
If you think about it, when we were living in paleo times, we would have gone without food for a while, and if our bodies then catabolised our muscles it would become more and more difficult to catch our food and we would have died out!
I'm not a scientist, but I reckon our muscles will be fine without food for a bit.
By the way the class I did was called Body Attack and it was brilliant but I was knackered!!!
