My blood test also showed that I do have a Vitamin D deficiency. It’s recommended to have at least 40 or 50 ng per ml better would be 70-100 ng. I am currently at 9 ng which is way too low and can not only affect the above described areas but also my mood. The best way to boost Vitamin D is simply by getting enough sun exposure on a large area of uncovered skin as described in The 8-5-3 Formula To Boost Your Health . If the actual sun is not possible, a tanning bed is also an option. A last resort might be to supplement it but that’s rather difficult.
hey ali, been following ur blog for sometime now. have to say it is one of the best out there. congrats, great job done! wanted ur opinion on a quick thing. am in the process of a body recomp, trying to cut fat & put on muscle at the same time. doing IF on 3 cutting days, eating below maintenance calories, adding a quick HIIT sprint routine. on 3 bulking days – doing a 14 hour IF instead of 16 hrs, no cardio, strength training, + eating above maintenance calories and proteins. focusing on compound movements in the strength training (low reps high weight). how does this look to you? the progress is painfully slow. extremely slow results. but 2 months into it now & can see fat getting cut and muscle getting added. what would u change in this?
