FINALLY ACCOMPLISHED MY GOAL OF THE ULTIMATE UPGRADE. It's made me a much better climber, and it's actually super cheap. But like most things, if it easy everyone would do it.
I hit my college weight.
With a simple adjustment of my morning food routine the pounds melted off. All I've changed, is I eat fresh fruit until Noon. As much as I want. I'll add a handful of nuts. But mainly it's about 6 pieces of fruit: apple, banana, orange, peach, assorted berries. Mix and match.
I have no idea why it works, but it's been the body hack of the year.
The last time I got this lean was 2002 - using diet pills : (
The time before that was 16 years prior - a poor college kid.
After college, I put on 30 lbs... gaining weight with each pregnancy. Then, I started riding again and taking those diet pills. They made me feel terrible. Quitting the pills and eating donuts with my kids had me pack on 20. I dropped 10 pretty easy once I started competing again. But his last 10 seemed impossible to shed.
Fruit, fruit magical fruit
the more I eat, the more I lose.
The more I lose, the faster I climb,
so pound the fruit its morning time.
