Was considering experimenting with a combination of TrainerRoad’s plans and Xert’s fat loss calculation for mild, possibly safe? weight loss during build which I’m about to start next week.
Went out for a 3 hour endurance ride this morning to see what it came up with - it gives 241g fat. I was expecting a good figure as I was reasonably good at keeping my HR down for a lot of the ride until maybe later I perhaps started touching tempo.
Here’s my issue - 241g of fat converts to 2169calories. The ride itself was 2207KJ. Breakfast was a few eggs and slice of bread (500cals?).
Anyone think the numbers for the fat use are overblown badly and can’t be relied upon for anything meaningful?
