I am 43 and 5ft 9in and currently weigh 12st 11lbs. I want to lose a stone to help climb quicker. I've entered Mayhem solo and want to improve on my position last year, 32/150.
I ride about 4 times per week, with lots of climbing in the Shropshire hills of home:
MTB 2x per week, 2hrs hard effort on hills and easy on the flats and downs;
MTB 1x per week, 4hrs easy effort throughout;
Road 1x per week, 2-4hrs easy effort throughout.
I sleep well between 7 and 9 hrs per night. My diet is healthy - fish, tofu, veggie sausages, rice, cous cous, fresh herbs, roasted seeds, lots of roasted veg, lots of fruit, lots of water. Occasional sweet snacks.
While riding I fuel on Jelly Babies and SIS Go or water, and flapjacks and bananas on longer rides.
My weight has been stable at 12st 9-13lbs for about 2 months since Xmas.
I will usually lose some weight from April onwards as the diet changes to lighter summer food, but just wondering if anyone out there has some top tips on losing a stone in 14 weeks.
