Getting back into the grove

Ramadan is over and Eid has finished up. Time to get back on it, plan is to Intermittent Fast while training BJJ and running. Over Ramadan got into a habit of drinking Lucozade to open my fast which I need to weane myself off, damn those drinks are addictive. I trained through the fasting month…

Training while fasting…

Ive continued to go to BJJ 5 days a week and also been running at least 3 days all while fasting during the month of Ramadan, made harder because I cant take in any liquids either. I dont want to stop as feel I would lose any momentum that I have generated getting to the…

BJJ and CBD Oil…

I have been looking into CBD Oil and the health benefits I have heard it gives, some MMA fighters have backed it’s benefits. CBD is not the THC the component in Cannibis that gives you the high, though it does contain small amounts. Also I and concerns if it is halal being a Muslim if…

Beginning to feel more energetic…

Went for a 6 mile run and was surprised how good I felt, I didn’t feel stiff or sore as I usually do as had done BJJ earlier in the day. I felt good through out the run and believe because of the IF my body is getting more efficient at using the energy from…

Keto and Intermittent Fasting…

I heard that Keto works really well with IF, I’ve been reluctant to try cause with the amount I train (BJJ/MMA and Running) I feel I need carbs to get through the day. Truthfully I don’t think I know enough about Keto to make a judgement so will start experimenting over the next couple of…

Drinking fizzy drinks/soda’s – Why: High amounts of sugar, additives and colarants.  Not good when your not fasting worse when you are. – Solution: If you have to, drink it twice a week maximum of try the hack of sparkling water with a little fruit juice. 2.

Getting easier and easier…

20 to 24hrs fast Im finding are easy to achieve, suprised in this by going on how hard my first attempt was.  Key things that help me acheive hitting the 20 to 24hr range are the following: Keep hydrated, I have a bottle of water next me, whenever I feel any hunger pangs a take…

Whoa…

Just ended up doing another 24hr fast without any effort, just happened naturally and I wasnt hungry at all.  Feels like my body apated to the first attempt that was hard and was ready. Will try one more before the end of the week, then need to read up and investigate how often to do…
