Wait a minute. 12 lbs in less than 4 weeks?I'm no math major but that's 3 or more lbs per week ! That can't be good for efficient training,that's more of a crash diet even at 195,but hey if it works it works I guess.
He doesn't say what kind of party season he had - there's easy weight loss to be had if you were 180 before Christmas and hit the mince pies/beers hard for a fortnight to put on 15lb
HUGE party season
I've been REALLY bad about staying focused...when I was a junior they used to call me "Little Jan" for my riding style and the way I looked on the bike....it seems to have lived up to it's reputation.
I usually have no trouble dumping down to the mid 180's...it seems to just fall off (and maybe out
) of my body...after that it takes "regular" time to drop. Since I posted that originally I'm 182~ish, and currently trying NOT to drop weight since I am doing a pretty rough training block.
I have a teammate who does a crash diet of popcorn....he gets SUPER lean (absolutely SHREDDED!), but curiously enough, he starts to ride sucky after a few weeks. HMMMMM....
