Questions: Is there a set way to calculate cortisol release after exercise, even more so after extended exercise?

As someone who follows the adapted Burke dietary (>10-12 guides for carrying food while exercising, I can find it hard some times to carry enough fuel. Any recommendations above the use of my current own mix of energy/electrolyte drinks on this and shot blox (cliff bar's gels in a easily eatable block). Other than arranged fuel stops?

I recently found and confirmed a drawback of Metformin - it reduces your energy by interfering with your intracellular respiratory cycle - the body's powerhouses. This is recorded in medical science. Further, I did a Challenge, De-challenge, Re-challenge (CDR) test for adverse drug reaction. I felt better without Metformin.

This may be because Metformin depends on an excess of bodily energy, but since I also have the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism, I don't have energy to spare. Further, I also understand that once my hypothyroidism symptoms are properly cared for my borderline diabetes will resolve itself. This is reasonable since ATP, the intracellular energy transporter, activates the insulin receptors and AMPK. Metform activates AMPK via some other path.

Have a great day, Eric
