I feel like I’m on drugs after eating, after 10 days of the Gut Right diet, my movements are more regular then ever, and feel ‘right’. I’m eating less, and feel like I can feel the digestion in my gut moreso, making me feel less like throwing more food in, in the hope of more energy.. this is something..
Ever since listening to Jack Kruse talk about Circadian rhythm, I’ve been trying to do things right as far as lighting. My room has a florescent light, and I’ve been thinking about installing some standard light sockets (and connecting them to a sensor and dimmer). I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this the last few days trying to do it right. Incandescent globes have actually been banned locally, which have the lowest colour temperature (most red). I was going to hook up some red LED sensor lights for night time. Until I read this forum post… So no LED lights, and I’ll be taking that dimmer back I guess. By chance I have a 12v halogen lamp behind me (as recommended by jack in the linked forum thread), so that will be getting use.. Not sure if the glass protector should be removed regarding UV as shown here. So halogen globes are available locally, although they have higher colour temp than incandescent.. (from here)
So I think I’ll be using decorative incandescent globes as sensor lights for night time, and incandescent globes or if not available halogen globes at night. Sorted 🙂
YouTube just autoplayed this song for me. Instant favourite. You know me too well. This song is like cruising along at dawn in cool weather, through winding roads, with a little fog, and a whole bunch of serotonin.
40 Mins: Fasting for stem cell production (~16 hours is where it kicks in).
44:50 Mins: Protein cycling (meatless Monday, fish/eggs only meats).Mark Sisson talks very briefly about protein cycling here. From ‘The Primal Blueprint’:
“As you learned already, you need an average of 0.7 to one gram of protein per pound (.33 to .5 grams per kilo) of lean body weight per day to repair, build, and/or maintain lean muscle mass effectively and to adequately support numerous other metabolic functions dependent upon dietary protein”Lentils have become a really nice dish since starting this meatless day thing.. I was all over the shop going by numbers only to try to work out macronutrients – the importance of being attuned to the body is key, which is difficult when there’s a bunch of noise and you can’t hear the signal (enter #GutRight).
59 Mins: Cooking Steak perfectly.
1:13 Mins: Shouldn’t take vitamin E/C post workout
1:14 Mins: Cold immersion post workout to lower core temp for deep sleep (if working out within 3 hrs before sleep), importance of good sleep.
~1:20 fasted aerobic workout tips for fat metabolism.. + tips
~somewhere: need to eat leafy greens with high fat meats.
~1:30 Morning keto, afternoon carbs post workout. Anti ageing effects of blueberry and cacao relating to NAD
1:48 Coffee enemas (coffee for me = roller-coaster straight to anxiety)
I did a search for salt in the iTunes podcast store. Partially motivated by reading on my latest heavy metal protocol, but also because of cramps tied to salts as identified by my BJJ coach. Just had > a teaspoon of dissolved Celtic sea salt in a Powerade bottle, feeling better…. Another mineral to obsess about 🙂
From the protocol: “If you are having a hay-fever attack, try the salt and a glass of water. Make sure and look at the second hand of a clock. Because you will want to take note in how many seconds it takes to work.”
Feels good in my lungs too… hmmm..!!!!!
In my head this feels a little Wim Hoff’y like a cellular cleaning in my brain…
“The body needs the Chloride from salt to detoxify, to make the right amount of HCL in the stomach for digestion, to clean neurons”
Reading the Wilking protocol, magnesium is talked about as a first tier detox supplement. One of the pages linked is from the Weston A Price website so while it took my lazy ass a while, I got through reading it. They talk about how topical treatment of magnesium chloride has many benefits:
“There are many advantages to transdermal magnesium therapy, since the gastrointestinal tract is avoided altogether and there is no laxative effect. Next to intravenous magnesium administration, transdermal therapy provides a greater amount of magnesium to be absorbed than even the best tolerated oral supplements, and can restore intracellular concentrations in a matter of weeks rather than the months required for oral supplementation.”
I was going to order from iherb, but yesterday did a search of local chemist websites, and was really happy to find Bioglan Active Magnesium Cream, with 30% mag chloride. There were some other apparent mag oils I found, but they didn’t say anything about concentration.. I put some of this cream on various places around my body and was very impressed. I have a weak left wrist and in this area there was a burning sensation for around half an hour… literally giving my cells a missing ingredient, I guess this would have been mobilising calcium and helping a lot.. My wrist isn’t sore this morning 🙂
Also, not directly related, this morning I saw posted on the Wilking fb group a video about Willard Water, which is on iherb 🙂
