@Ashley – Thanks! I think Layne Norton and Eric Helms are two of the strongest voices spreading the word about metabolism in the body building community.
@David – I’ve been considering not tracking for a bit and just eating to appetite, but I’m too interested to see if downward trend starts!
@Jdubs – I’m starting to think that unless someone is in real trouble slow and steady might be the way to go. Which unless the hunger signaling is all out of whack means eating to appetite or a bit more.
I actually started increasing in December (to 2400) after seeing my pulse was in 50’s and temp was in 96 region. Now pulse averages 75-85 during day and temp is 98+.
