An interesting learning process thus far, and after 6 months I'm happy with the results. In summary, the main benefits for have been:
I'm off to Europe for two weeks to get away from the cold, and I suspect that it's going to be difficult to avoid the carbs. I'll do my best to avoid going completely off the rails :) and will have to hit the 21 day keto reset button when I return.
On a side note, I've taken a break from bike training this winter because of the insanely cold weather that basically requires way too much motivation to continue day in day out. I'm still doing at least 1 indoor trainer session per week, and a weekend fun ride with either friends or my dogs. This coupled with running, strength training, and BJJ is keeping me sufficiently fit and healthy. All of this means that the Shimano GP series is pretty much off the cards in terms of trying to complete at least 4 races. Maybe next year!
I'm a 36 year old male from Carwoola, New South Wales, a small rural area situated just outside of Canberra, Australia. I'll be using this blog to share my experiences with training, dieting, and other methods to optimise overall well being. The basic idea behind all of this is to have lots of fun with the learning and experimentation process. It's worth noting that what may work well for me may not work as well for others. I also don't think there are right or wrong answers, as things are constantly changing and evolving.
