Re: Beta endorphin spiking and 4 day crash

Hi Jeffrey,

If I do an extra big exercise session or a different exercise that is challenging that can give me a "high" I can often have an emotionally and physically low day with cravings three or so days later. The day I do the exercise I seem to be "high" and a little big racehorsey and get by not eating as much or not enough to make up for the extra exercise which probably contributes to the crash too.

Also if I don't eat enough for a few days the same thing happens.

This has all evened out for me now though as I have been doing the program longer (and not trying to limit what I eat) and the amount I need to eat to satisfy the craving is definitely less that it used to be.

What about you?
