Its interesting at the moment to see DaveM and Grecian promoting weight loss as an athletic gains tool.
There must be some truth to certain individuals handling calorie restriction better than others. E.g. I am not one of those people - my power falls off a cliff if I go below c.3000 kcals per day! Performing on sub-1,200 seems outrageous to me, but it obviously works for some.Either way, calorie restriction at a level which still allows for high-level performance is probably no more unhealthy than the average person in the UK who overeats.
Yes.Thread split would be good.Quite a way back? So it seems less “undermining” of AE’s rather impressive achievements?Anyway, I can recommend one single activity for shedding weight, without changing your dietary intake a jot (sorry, insta post for simplicity).Stick 15-20kg in a Bergan and find some steepish hills: https://www.instagram.com/p/CGw4HIVjyf1/?igshid=v4524d3l06ec

I will burn off more calories on a three hour road ride, roughly 500 to 600 an hour. Matt you need to acknowledge you are middle-aged and get a bike.
I don't think anyone is undermining the Angy's achievement at all, in fact everything posted here has been very thoughtful and caring i think, but it is uncomfortable still.
Spot on AMorris. Think of all the imaciated men doing top end stuff on the reg. Plenty of opportunities to discuss disordered eating. And yet as soon as it's a woman we're instantly 5 pages deep in opinions. I recall the same thing happened with Puccio on here a while back. Step back from the individual contributions--which are all fine--and it's not OK. IMO.

Dave M in particular always seems to preface anything he says with "I just like discussing nutrition and experimenting with different strategies for myself", to the point it's actually quite annoying!I think it's important to be able to discuss nutrition in a balanced way, out in the public eye, as otherwise it becomes taboo which makes it harder again to raise it with someone where you think there may be an issue.
Dave Mac keeps himself relevant with the skull head look. Saying that the meat n eggs diet doesn’t seem to have caught on. I do think he had a point re brain function as I think it’s shown benefits in helping conditions like epilepsy
What’s a genetic outlier and how is DMac one?
