Fasting is very bad for us with schizophrenia. I have done it knowing better just because I am vain. People also expect me to be in great shape. Cortisol (a stress hormone) spikes when one doesnt get enough glycogen in their system. This is so that we get pissed off and go hunt to acquire food. I cannot deal with being even more pissed off than usual. I did a crash diet over the summer but went apeshit.
I love working out as well, but fasting is just not really okay at all, unless you are obese, then it might be okay, but generally it is very unhealthy. Paleo diet: because humans used to live till maybe 30 at best. Right.
Just eat normally and exercise.
I usually run 3 miles, then do upper body pulls or pushes or legs. I have three workouts. I am mixing it up by breaking out my old boxing bag, the big one tomorrow. I have done lots of athletic endeavors, from powerlifting to long distance running to bodybuilding to fighting to cycling. I like the current running and calisthenics with some dumbbell work for shoulders the best. I havent been dropping weight like mad and I am actually sore after my workouts, which means theyre working.
But for example, push day is 3 mile run, 100 dips and 100 push ups. Not exactly easy for most people…My chest, anterior delts and triceps are sore, I did it yesterday.
Tomorrow I am taking a break from the damn treadmill and working out at home with my bag. Leg day and running is sort of retarded to begin with. For now on it will be boxing and leg day, not friggin 3 mile run then legs like no hell no nonono
