Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.

IMO, too much canned food. High sodium retains water. I agree also , you may be overtraining and not giving your body time to heal and it's considering itself injured and holding all calories.

The fundamental thought of HIIT is that you practice in short blasts of extraordinary movement for up to 60 seconds on end (or as meager as 10 seconds). In the middle of blasts your movement level ought to be simple or moderate. The principles... (more)

I can't imagine one is much more effective than the other. They each jack your heart rate up like crazy, which is what you want for HIIT. Maybe just for the sake of variety mix them up, but otherwise, I'd say do whichever you want. So long as... (more)

Yes. Take it easy, warm up properly and see how you feel. Gradually increase intensity until it gets to a point of discomfort. And then stop. Next time out try going a bit further

I do most of my runs, lifts, and sprints on an empty stomach. You will not loose muscle by exercising in a fasted state. It is far more important what you do after your exercise. Get enough protein, get enough food, get enough sleep! (more)
