1 1/2 yrs ago I was in a bad car accident. The car slid off a mountain rolling what seemed infinite times. Many bones broken, back herniated, nerve damage. I was confined to a bed for many months. The rest of the months have been spent rehabing. I am walking fine now but unable to train for a long time based on a few Docs.
I am not gonna moan about a lost physique cause I am glad to be alive. I had 10 yrs of SOLID training prior to this. My body now has turned to mush you would never ever guess I even worked out in my life. I can't seem to address the change in my metabolism, mainly due to not eating and long periods of inactivity.
I have no Idea how to correct a metabolism, and especially doing so only by walking,hiking and biking. Food just sits in my stomach, I can't seem to just normalize my metabolic rate. I also digest protein very slowly, when I eat carbs like oatmeal I blow up and get puffy. I want to take these next months to just normalize my sluggish metabolism.
I eat like eggs for breakfast with spinach, or peppers, chicken salad for lunch, and dinner is usually fish or steak with veggies and healthy fats. I uaually add some extra fruit to that mix. I know my total cals are so low. being that I am not working out my carbs are low, but that to has effected my metabolism. When I start increasing carbs I just blow up anyway. How Does one reset his metabolism if it has been crashed for a while?
