Glycolytically demanding exercise 5x a week + IF is a really BAD IDEA for most people. You just can't possibly refill your tank on broccoli in less than 24 hrs especially if you aren't eating for most of them! Combine all of the above + Tea or... (more)

Yes the cardio , that is way too much. In fact you don't even need hiit. What I would recommend is 3/week weight training, one hiit session and some slow walks. In fact you don't need the hiit session. Yes weight training and yoga FTW! (more)
