When it comes to cardio for FAT LOSS i’m personally not a fan of doing or asking my clients to do cardio first thing in the morning before eating, some people love it & tolerate it well.
Others like myself, it makes me feel like i’m forcing myself to it do it with low energy & i often feel pretty sluggish for the rest of the day, it is actually quite a stress on our physiology to train with any intensity & duration without a balanced supply of blood sugars circulating the system.
People are often quite surprised to hear about the increase in required Protein by the body if you lift weights with any real intensity (& that can include body weight & boot camp type exercise).
When we exercise or lift weight we break down muscle tissue, what repairs muscle tissue you ask?? Protein does!
After you finish a workout you are actually weaker than when you started, what you do (rest & eat)between leaving the gym & coming back for your next workout will determine how quickly you move forward with the results everyone wants.
An addiction is just an unmet need in someone’s life that usually all comes back to a safety & security issue in their childhood. Avoid that one will fill usually with a substance, over or under eating or highs like sex & exercise.
It does not matter what the addiction is to, it’s what’s causing the addiction at the ground level that needs to be addressed.
Anything that is done regularly enough that you can’t stop doing that causes you “any” kind of pain or suffering is considered an addiction.
