Re: Any experience with recovery from deep overtraining syndrome? Help...

How much fat are you eating? Fat is essential for cholesterol and that streams to testosterone.

A lot of guys who go paleo, wind up cutting down their carbs (less refined stuff), then start feeling fatigued and when you do that you need to compensate with fat or for the paleo people--paleo friendly carbs.

Also, you might want to look in HRV monitoring (heart rate variability) or just take your pulse every morning upon waking. Track that with how you feel. That would be a rough gauge of your training state.

Exercise wise, I'd do a lot of light recovery stuff. Easy walks, light swims, maybe a light jog. If pulse doesn't go up, then start ramping up slowly.
