Just wanted to let you all know that starting today I'm doing a personal Metabolic Efficiency "study." If any of you attended Bob Seebohar's clinic at Bicycle Village last month, you know what I'm talking about. If you didn't make it there, it's all explained in my summary post from last night here: metabolic efficiency study. I'll be blogging about it daily at http://bananadeath.blogspot.com and posting summaries 2x/week at http://neoendurance.blogspot.com.
Kelly Ping, RD from the UCCS Peak Nutrition Clinic is helping me out with skinfold tests and meal ideas. So let's see what changes my body will undergo with 3 weeks of eating fruits, veggies, lean meats and healthy fats!
Thanks for the reminder, Patti! The Metabolic Efficiency study went very well and here are the results:
I'm also getting a Metabolic Efficiency Test tomorrow (1/7) with Bob Seebohar so I'll learn at what paces/heart rates I'm most efficiency burning fat.
I'll blog about that and I'll try to be a little more timely with my update! :)
Update! Here are the results of my metabolic efficiency test:
and a link to more info on the test with a few more photos:
Drop me a note if you have any questions about metabolic efficiency!
