Weight is falling off even though I am eating a lot ( haven't done a diary but easily close to 4K a day ), put it this way I don't go hungry ever, probably need to eat even more as I am losing weight a bit quick. The best part is all cravings are gone.
Will stick with it till I head away for the TDF ... being a vegie is hard enough in France, let alone being a vegan ... I expect I will be back as a vegan after July though. It does seem to work for me rather well.
Knowing me I will probably have a caffeine hit before races... but the amount will be half of what I used to take I expect, having cut out my 3 or 4 coffees a day.
Might do a food diary to know the ratios... but I would think I am sticking roughly to the 80 10 10 ratio.
PS... can you call it a diet when you eat much more than normal ?
That is some serious will power there cutting out the coffee
