Hey guys! So, I've been thinking about implementing IF into my routine. I'm thinking something like a 16 to 24 hour fast every 7 to 10 days...just to give my gut a break. However, I am very active. I ride my bike to work, engage in lots of play,... (more)

You will likely be AOK for 1 fast per week. If you are cycling 2 hours each way to work, you may want to reconsider the fast. Otherwise, there's plenty of fat stores and liver & muscle glycogen to carry you through, and not waste muscle. If... (more)

Paleo does not mean low carb and I think that including a moderate amount of carbs can be very beneficial to endurance activities. I am a distance runner and I usually keep my macronutirient ratios around 45/35/20 carbs/fat/protein. This seems to... (more)

Why would you fast if you're hungry all the time? You're obviously extremely active, so don't be afraid to go mod-high carb. People who have leaned out tend to benefit from reintroducing carbs.

This is very hard to answer, and since you never tried the hobby pre-paleo there is really no point of reference. 1: You tried the sport of road cycling and discovered it is fun. That probably would have happened regardless, but your paleo... (more)
