Key concepts this book explores include:
• Exercise should be fun
• Exercise should be varied in intensity as well as activity
• Too much of the kind of cardio we typically do in gyms can damage the heart. While cardio on equipment or in classes is not bad as part of a balanced regimen, just be sure to mix it up. (In my experience, few people actually do because its just so easy to get stuck in a routine)
• Your diet’s macronutrient breakdown influences whether you burn fat or sugar during exercise
• Sugar is not the perfect fuel for athletes, in spite of what most sports nutritionists will tell you
• When your diet supports fat burn, you can listen to your body and TRUST what its telling you (with regard to hunger, fatigue and so on)
Far and away, the most important concept and one that the book keeps returning to is the metabolic state of burning fat is essential to normal health. And contrary to what many athletes assume, its not just exercise that promotes fat burn, it’s also diet. So that no matter how much you exercise, if your diet does not contain the right nutrients, you will not burn fat optimally.
Programatic elements of the book will help you to:
• Enjoy a balanced variety of activities
• Determine if you are overtraining
• Get more results from your workouts with less time
• Adapt a diet that helps to optimize fat burn even without exercise
I run a weight loss clinic and don’t always have time to go over a full exercise program with my patients so I have been waiting eagerly for a book that I can recommend it to my weight loss patients as well as the athletes I work with. This book is exactly what the doctor ordered.
An engaging and easy to read book no matter how you slice it Primal Endurance offers much needed information that brings the best nutrition advise from the medical world into the world of fitness, while providing a balanced approach to exercise.
As far as results you can expect in terms of improving your fat burn, I would expect that you could double your fat-burning capacity in 4 weeks, and go even further into fat burning beat territory the longer you follow this program. I use a similar dietary approach and test people’s fat burn before and after dietary intervention, and this is what I've found so far. For example, if someone starts the program burning 2 calories of fat per minute at rest and a maximum of 3 with exercise, they'll get to 4 and 6 respectively in a month easily. And that's without adding any exercise!
I purchased this book for several friends and family members and lead 2x as many to buy it. Absolutely life changing if you haven't read anything about Primal Lifestyle.
