  1. I am curious if you have found any benefit in laying off of the training?

  2. Hard to say; primarily because I only ended up taking 2 weeks off before I couldn't take it anymore. Though from some recent posts you can see I am no longer having such high spikes post training.

    Since putting some weight back on from a combination of HED and starting on insulin; I feel much better both mentally and physically...and it's showing in my recent training.

    I think in my effort to eat so low-carb immediately prior I was not paying attention to and/or making sure I replaced those calories properly. So simply not eating enough may have been causing my body to feel the need to produce it's on glucose?

    I think for someone who has been harming their body/metabolism for a longer period of time; and/or those that overdo it in terms of volume/intensity/ definately can become and issue.

    My training is almost entirely based in the realm of resistance training; and not other protocols which can induce more catabolic/cortisol producing enviroments.

    Bottom line: I think I was under-eating and was overdo for a break even if I was optimal otherwise. I know better than to go mroe than 4 weeks without de-training; but I occasionally goof and push through anyway.
