    Plus one for MDA. It may not be to everyones taste (see what I did there) but the under lying strategy is sound.

    Not sure if this is gonna be counter intuitive to the fat loss or muscle growth?

    Depends. Personally I seem to need a certain amount of carbs to recover, build muscle and get faster. However Solo will tell you it’s all in my head, but he’s not a physiologist and he doesn’t know me in real life either so he’s really just guessing πŸ™‚

    There is a theory though that as you ride with that drained feeling you’re training your body to burn more fat. There is however a possibility that some people are not well able to adapt to that, and some are.

    Part of it is that what each of us consider ‘cycling’ seems to vary!

    Yeah, I’ll bite.

    Well. I like to do short rides absolutely flat out, others do more day long rides.

    What ?, like getting up in the morning and getting straight into 26mph on the rollers for an hour, before work.

    Is that what you mean ?.

    I only do short/quick rides as well as I have other stuff to do on my days off πŸ™‚ normally 10 miles as quick as I can.

    15 stone 7 nine months ago, 13 3 this morning. Tried the idave stuff for about 3 months, you do get used to feeling hungry!! Off it now but just eating way less than I used to (this is evidenced by there being half a pack of fruit gums sat next to me – they would have been all gone a year ago!).

    No, for me it’s more like sprinting up hills for 30s, that kind of thing. Your post seems to have a defensive tone though, there’s no need – I don’t consider one style of biking to be better than the other, it’s a matter of preference, which was my point.

    Long rides are great, but your body does different things than on short sprinty ones.

    Very good spirited of you RJ.
    Good stuff !.
    πŸ˜€

    Grips.
    Dude, you can turn it any way you like.
    I like to sprint, I’m a special case, etc, etc.
    But seems to me that you’re doing all this stuff, yet you appear not to be realizing your stated goal to reduce your BF %.
    So then something tells me that if you’re sprinting up a hill for 30s but not shifting the lard. Then this isn’t working for you wrt to BF% reduction.
    How long has it been since you first attempted to moderate the GI load of your diet (iDave diet), while then going onto experimenting with Cheesecake and coke around the time you exercise ?, adding cheese to meals, etc, etc.
    Has any of your efforts, exercise or with diet, yielded the results you’ve been wanting ?.
    What did you weigh when you started and what do you weigh now ?.
    Most folk here, ref the OP, report sustainable BF reduction along with a weight reduction.
    If your actions do not reflect the results and the goals you desire, then is it not time to stop thinking you know what to do and to start reassessing your methods ?.

    I’ve made mistakes along the way. But I identify this and then take remedial action, while acknowledging to myself that feeling all warm and fuzzy, may not be commensurate with achieving my goals.
    Sometimes a little temporary discomfort is the price one might have to pay in order to make the changes required.

    cold chicken and butternut squash, with quinoa anyone?

    So thats an invite to breakfast at your house ?.

    Sounds OK, but for a first visit, Ton. I think I’d rather prefer the H/M baked beans, eggs and bacon.

    I have a copy of the recipe book for homemade baked beans, I could send over but what I do suggest you do is go visit Jules Clanceys website over at the stone soup and download the free free simple things cookbook as it has a whole lot more than the baked beans recipe, also if you subscribe to her blog she will email you various recipes as well, and yes I am just a guy who likes good healthy food (and beer and cake)

    Yep another thanks for the pdf, think I’m gonna give the cyclical keto another month or two then switch to this, mainly because this seems to offer a bit more variety whilst still having the fat loss benefits πŸ™‚
