So, I’m currently halfway through Base Mid Volume II and have noticed I am losing weight (approx 4kg since I started Base Mid Volume I).
This is quite unexpected as I have been riding for several years and have slowly reduced my weight from 93kg to a steady 84kg before starting TR and now I’m at 80kg (I’m 191cm)
What is more interesting is I’ve experimented previously with intermittent fasting and low carb high fat diet. However, with the increased intensity experienced with TR I’ve committed to eating and fueling solidly with high quality carbs.
I fully expected to gain weight with this approach but the opposite occurred. Even more happily my power seems to be increasing too.
I can only guess its the increased intensity plus the lower calorie density of the carbs versus fats I was consuming.
Safe to say, I’m a happy TR convert!
