I’m not saying a light morning jog constitutes a decent workout, absolutely not. The article is about “easy lifestyle changes”, so I made the simple assumption that the author wasn’t promoting a heart-pounding HIIT session to start off one’s day as a light adjustment for the ‘average Joe’, as you put it. What I meant is that if said Joe goes for a light jog - as I believe to article to suggest - on an empty stomach, they will not suffer any adverse effects, provided proper nutrition afterwards. And by no means did me saying that HGH plays a role in protein conservation mean that it’s a great way to lose weight. I said no such thing. Unnecessary straw man. Now, it looks like I have to clarify that I’m not saying any of this to be hostile; attempting to debase my argument by simply telling me to get a degree isn’t helping anyone further understand the issue, wherever they may stand. Admittedly, the few books on sports nutrition that I read during my BA years were rather archaic in nature, but I do have a solid athletic background, so your backhanded remarks are misplaced and, once again, completely unnecessary and of no benefit to anyone reading this.
