On the Friday evening ( and the remainder on the Saturday morning ) before the ‘Two Battles’ 200 km Audax, I ate a 20” diameter deep pan pizza with all the meats and added kebab meat and jalapenos.
During the ride I ate four slices of various sponge cakes with strong coffee.
Sunday I ate normally
On the Monday morning, I’d lost 0.5% bodyfat by the caliper method, and on Tuesday morning, my weight had maintained to the 0.5% fat reduction.
For breakfast before a 70 mile ride out to recce an Info Control for next year’s Audax event, I ate a 8” tall Thorntons white chocolate Easter egg and an Aldi white chocolate bunny.
Still losing fat.
But I can do that too
The trouble is that if you say are particulary good at something which others find hard or wish they could do so easily, then they will believe anything you say and copy that.
I have dropped 5 Kgs in four months and at only 10 miles a day, and one day a week I pig out on choclate etc, but do not generally put on weight.
I think its bad to advise others (not directed at any one here) that they can eat high fat no carbs etc, etc, diet.
Because long term it dont work otherwise why did they diet in the first place
I still maintain that whatever you eat should be a plan for the rest of life, and of course give in to the occasional crave once a week.
I dont do takeaways more than twice a year, lack of money, but every saturday its a curry with rice and snacks plus two cans of lager and a mini magnum ice and then stawberrys and ice cream and cream later
I am now 76 kgs and thats the first time since my early twenties 32 years ago.
The trick is not to over eat for the rest of the week.
