Hello all, i think too much these days about my body weight , 1,75cm and 83kg , my best weight was 76kg before and ironman, never lower than that, of course i know if i can reduce my body fat, and my kg i can run better and cycling better, but its a big sacrifice for me to have a diet, when i started a diet only do for 1 week or less, its a terrible sacrifice, meaby its mental, because i really want to be fit to have better sensation in race/training...
Meaby you have something similar?
sometimes i feel motivated i do, but when im sad thigs change and i would like to eat anything, im not a profesional but of course i would like if i can , to reduce my weight to have better feelings in my sport the triathlon.
I'm in the same boat I love to eat and I don't have the discipline to diet. I just exercise more and lift weights to increase muscle mass both will help you burn fat, although the with weight training you may not loose weight but you will decrease your body fat making you feel and perform better. Just make shure to drink lots of water, which will keep you healthy and helps burn fat.
Road bike is a Carbon Bianchi C2C & Grandis (1980's), Gary Fisher Mt Bike, Trek Tandem & Mongoose SS MTB circa 1992.
Power to Weight ratio
there is a point at which weight loss is a negative...Too much loss = weakness. If you starve the body it will crave that which is missing...Healthy, strong go with how you feel & look verse simple pounds...the extra weight if it keeps you healthy will in no way hinder your power output..I am a large guy who is skinny at 175lbs... when on my game most small guys cannot touch me on the bike..During the runs however I get smoked.
