I've been a triathlete for 8 years. I've completed 3 Ironman races. I have always found it intriguing the number of Ironman athletes I see who have a (relatively) high percentage of body fat. I see competitive athletes with guts.
I've have definitely noticed that I have a more consistent energy with the higher protein diet and "slow carbs". More muscle mass helps burn more calories when at rest.
The author, Tim Ferriss, is one of a kind. An interesting read whether you need to lose weight or not.
Anyone else trying The 4-Hour Body diet by Timothy Ferriss? I have enjoyed good success with it in reducing percentage of body fat. Focus of the diet is a "slow carb" diet combined with weight training. I've lost 8 pounds since 1/1 and lowered my percentage of body fat by 5%.
Like a lot of triathletes, I was a carb-junkie. Despite hard training I always had a ring of fat around my waist. Finally, it is starting to disappear.
