Was reading a cycling mag at a bookstore this weekend (don’t remember the name) which had an interview with pro Nicholas Roche. He was talking about race weight etc. and said that he has been on so many diets over the last 10 years that it’s damaged his metabolism (aka the body’s chemical processes).
He didn’t go into any further detail but can this actually happen?
- How does chronic dieting damage the metabolism?
- What are the chronic effects of said damage?
- Can the damage be reversed?
