So, I’m logging food, I’m being semi-strict. I’m just trying to keep my bodyweight hovering around 137lbs. But I struggle to get close to 140 consistently. I’m 5’4" but my BF% is fairly good at just under 18%. I was doing some analysis on bestbikesplit and it looks like 5lbs saves me like 3-5 watts. I mean, is it even worth it?
It seems like 10lbs would make a shining difference. But is it worth all the struggle? I’m not targeting hill climbs or anything. I do want to do decently in road races, but I’m a better crit racer no doubt.
Ps. That is all in hopes I can keep my ftp where it is or higher, of course!
