Thanks to urging from my young colleague at work who is into leangains, I signed up at the gym, and want to work on repairing what metabolism I may have left after (too long a story) obesity and a hormone train wreck.
I'm 51, m, and went from over 300 with ugly labs results, to 198, and everything in the labs is fine. I got leptin and rT3 last time and they were low. At far as numbers, no more hormone wreck. The leftover is low calorie requirements, about 1,400/1,500 a day.
I can follow the Paleo eat fat, burn fat, skip meals and get leaner thing at this point. It does work, but I'm hardly eating then.
So, for the experts- How you would approach this at the gym, assuming maybe 2X a week to start? I was thinking after getting settled in, the carb cycling thing? Or is that like too advanced?
