Questions to Leptin FAQ

Discussion in 'Optimal Fitness' started by Butters, Mar 9, 2016.

    I recently read Leptin FAQ again.
    Does Jack really recommend 5 times a week exercise with 3 times lifting and 2 times HIIT?

    Cite: "After three weeks of lifting, you should add two days of running sprints. The sprints should be no longer than 40 yards and you should not exceed 20 sprints. If you can’t do twenty, work up slowly and steadily. Walking in the beginning is fine. Do not stress about this. If you do you, will raise your cortisol and the rest will take longer. Your thoughts will drive your cortisol."

    Sunlight not fake light in a gym builds hormones like cortisol by building dopamine using aromatic amino acids that absorb UV light. It does this to cortisol too. That light is used to power up electrons and this electrons have to get assigned a spin in mitochondria. So light acts as the currency in the compound pharmacy in our pituitary every day to make things we need from light. If you understand factorial math, that means within our octave of the visible spectrum that retinal cells that control bio chemicals can handle 8,683,317,618,811,886,495,518,194,401,280,000,000 different frequencies. This is a staggering level of power and control. So when you open up any biochemistry book and realize that biochemistry only uses 100,000 substrate in reactions you realize light can control it. When you factor in that the photoelectric effect acts instantaneously, with no time delay, then you begin to see how 100,000 biochemical reactions can occur per second using light frequencies from the visible spectrum easily.

    So. I know its better to go outside, but the most dont have the opportunity to go to muscle beach ;)
    So should I block the light inside with long clothes, maybe blueblockers when working out, when I must go inside?

    There is no substitute for training outdoors under uv light and with your feet connected to the earth to complete the dc current and make triplet state oxygen vs singlet state=low NAD+=low oxygen=degeneration. And light only flows to tissue made out of triplet state. If you want optimal bad enough, you will make no excuses. Getting out in the sun with your feet connected to the earth will help you to see how important the right choices are in your journey.

    Fight the urge to add and add to mitigate. Subtract, subtract! Unless you're in a cell block you have the opportunity to go outside. Don't make it more difficult than it is. It's so easy, that's why nobody does it. Except the Russians!


    Outdoor lifting park in Kiev, Ukraine. Not pretty, but functional.

    Given this design, no human being itself should be considered impaired innately, instead there are environmental short comings that cause the impairment. Thus, it is incumbent on the on the clinician to recommend treatment of the environment their patient is in. People react to an inferior environment, way before their genome is altered. That is what the science of epigenetics and ubiquitin rates are telegraphing us, but the modern paradigm is not listening. You must.

    Your own personal magnetic field declines when you lose electrons (DHA)
    ex: the more ill you are, the more likely you are to become sicker.

    When we are sick, our world shrinks down until we get something like tunnel vision. Concern for nature goes away, then concern for others, and finally concern for our own selves

    I do workout in a covered gym 3 x weekly for about 30 minutes lifting. Because of this before each session I do Am CT, grounding and sunlight before hand. After I again ground and get outside sunlight..... Later that eve I may or may or may not do another short CT session or water swim.

    Would it be a biohack to do training at home during daylight and blacklight? I quit my gym membership because of the bluelight toxicity and nnEMF around there.
    Im planning to do the HIIT in form of sprints outside. But I need the weights inside my home.

    I am doing the same.

    I do my weight training without any indoor lights on except for a SolarGlo lamp. I figured this somewhat simulates full-spectrum light. Any thoughts on this idea.
  12. Jack Kruse

    Jack Kruse Administrator

    no light is full spectrum like the sun
  13. Ted

    Ted New Member

    Wow! Thanks, Jack.

    So, no light is better than using a SolarGlo. And I thought that I was doing a good biohack.
    How about using just a uva bulb?

    exercise is best outside and never inside.
  15. Jack, what about in the UK during winter at night after work?

    I have been doing CT at 7-8pm -> 20 minute HIIT weights workout under Infraphil Infrared Lamp -> then sleep

    Gined significant muscle and stayed in ketosis on Leptin Rx... but some mornings I feel so sluggish and really irritated mentally I can barely make it to work... could this be because of my training?

  16. Yes, 2017 Sean... yes it could. You were eating 06s by the tonne and then you developed Adrenal fatigue about 3 months after this comment.

    Melanopsin being found in the skin is a game changer.......if you have a gym membership and its indoors........cancel it.

  18. I was browsing these posts about the exercise for post-reset... and found this stupid comment.

    I think I'm just going to do barefoot sprints and loads of CT. Or just loads of CT and no exercise.

    My views have changed so much in 18 months.
