In the same boat or on the same bike!
Dear Dirt Runner:
I am a cyclist also. 59 about 215 lbs right now and attempting to keep with the kids I ride with but losing weight and getting my power to weight in better shape. One of my fellow riders told me about Mark's Daily Apple and I started one month ago. Tomorrow is week 4. I have lost about 17 lbs so far so it is working for me. I try to ride 100+ miles a week (sadly I have to work). Since I started this diet I have kept carbs under 50 a day and I have been miserable on the bike, just awful. I only just read, thanks to your post, some of these ideas about what kinds of carbs to eat and stay close to the plan. I am curious if you have tried these approaches and if anything is working for you?
Also for everyone else out there...I keep hearing my body will "FLIP" and become a fat eating beast! I have read this multiple times... Does anyone have advice or experience on how long this typically takes and when I might expect that magic flip.
I don't feel like I am there yet and I expect my cycling times and speed to tell me when I am...
Am I going at it wrong?
Thanks for the help!
