  • 2.
    • Resting Metabolic Rate
      • Amount of calories needed in a day without exercise
    • Metabolic Type
      • Ratio of protein, fat, and carb that you feel best with
    • Skin Fold Testing-lean muscle analysis
      • The more muscle the more calorie burn
    • Ratio of Carbohydrate /Protein /Fat
      • determined by the persons’ ability to burn fat for fuel as well as the phase of training.
    • Stress Level, Sleep
    • Meals/Day- thermic affect of food
      • Small, frequent meals to keep metabolism revved.
  • 3.
    • Resting Metabolic Rate Testing
      • Takes out one of the largest variables in determining caloric needs
      • Helps to stay on track on recovery days as well as lower bouts of training
    • Metabolic Testing
      • Gather information about where you need to work to achieve the best results, know where you are so you know where you’re going.
      • Determine if you are a fat burner or carb burner during exercise (VERY helpful with racing too).
      • *Once we know this data YOUR plan can be very precise.
  • 4.
    • If undetermined can produce excess inflammation and inhibit proper recovery
    • May contribute to weight gain or inability to lose weight
    • Fogginess, headache, fatigue, skin trouble, GI trouble, dehydration/dry mouth, achy joints/body, a hard time focusing or finding motivation, irritable
    • IgE-true allergy, determine best through blood test
    • IgG/IgA- sensitivity
    • Lactose, glucose, fructose intolerance
  • 5.
    • Step 1: Get body fat tested
      • FasCat can perform skin fold testing accurately
    • Step 2: Pick a realistic BF% goal
    • Step 3: Determine fat mass
      • Current body weight x body fat %
    • Step 4: Determine lean muscle mass
      • Subtract fat mass from current weight
    • Step 5: Calculate Goal Weight
      • Current lean muscle mass/goal lean muscle mass %
  • 6.
    • Ideal Body Fat for Racing
      • Men 20-29, 3-10%
      • Men 30-39, 5-12%
      • Men 40-49, 6-15%
      • Men 50+, 8-17%
      • Women 20-29, 10-16%
      • Women 30-39, 11-17%
      • Women 40-49, 13-20%
      • Women 50+, 14-22%
    • Pick realistic goal, avoid the dark side 
  • 7.
    • Resting Metabolic Rate + daily expenditure (you can use the calories off of your power meter) + 200-500 calories for going about your day.
      • SUBTRACT hours spent on bike if longer than 1 hour. You should not double count calories.
      • Example: RMR = 1800, OFF Day = 2200, EZ Day= 2900, Moderate Day = 3500, Hard Day = 4200
      • Divide your OFF day number by 24 hours and subtract the number of hours trained.
      • Example: burned 1600 on 3 hour ride. You will need to divide 2200 by 24 then subtract 3 of those hrs = 273. Then you can add your 1600 to 1927 = 3527.
      • OR you can take 1/8 th of RMR and add in OFF day, very similar
  • 8.
    • Do NOT sabotage your workouts
      • You may choose to do 1 day/week in carb deficit
    • Set the stage for training and recover well
    • Focus on balancing blood sugar and hydration
    • Taper off in consumption later in the day
      • If you workout at night, start with a lighter, protein based breakfast so you can have a balanced meal post training in evening.
    • VEGGIES! They help free up fat cells so that you lose fat vs. muscle when losing weight.
  • 9.
