My yearly “lent”

Hi! My name is Martin. I typically use the yearly „lent“ period of 45 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter to perform a diet. This is not for religious reasons but since in boxing I would fall under the heavy weights, my key target during the lent is to lose weight. This year, also inspired by Panagiotis and his insights into fasting, I set the following principles.

The benefits of a balanced diet

Today i will be sharing a personal story and some of my learnings from it.
I have been doing a low carb diet for a few years now with great results. Lost excess weight and went down to around 8% fat, a percentage easily kept all around the year. More importantly I have eliminated energy crashes, and have increased my energy levels throughout the day and hugely improved my sleep.
