Correspondent: The racing weight is a weight loss book for endurance athletes. I was wondering if you could tell us a little bit about the book?
Matt: Sure diet books are usually thought of as being marketed toward people who are overweight and no one has ever looked at the problem of weight management and endurance athletes before in a really thorough fashion. There are a lot of books on nutrition for endurance athletes and while endurance athletes do tend to be not as heavy as sedentary people we’re very concerned about managing our weight and body composition to optimize performance and we know that even a few pounds or a few percentage points of body fat can make a huge difference in performance and yes we’re vein too if we want to look good but really this book is all about optimizing your performance through managing your body weight and body composition.
Diet quality is something that’s often overlooked when you look at you know ways of modifying your diet to optimize your body weight its usually about eating less or getting your macro nutrient ratios right but a lot more simple things to focus on that’s very often overlooked is simply finding a way to quantify and measure the quality of the foods you’re eating and I contend in raising ways that if you put quality first and focus on that most of the rest will take care itself so I developed a scoring system very. It’s used based on systems that are used by scientists in research they do, this is just a simpler more user friendly version of that type of tool.
It allows you to day-by-day literally score the quality of your diet and then try to improve it and as you improve the score of your diet quality you will notice that you’re going to be naturally taking in fewer calories without necessarily going hungry and thereby they’ll manage your body weight better. You know if you really love your sport and you’re passionate about performance then you don’t have to use will power at all in order to eat right and train right and get all the benefits that come with it. You know it’s a natural process but if you focus too hard and that weight loss role that initial driver that’s where burnout happens in a period of just a few weeks and people end up going back to you know their old ways.
Correspondent: Well enjoying our sports is what we’re all about here at compitetor.com so thanks very much for the interview Racing Weight will be available in bookstores bike, tri and running shops and online at – press.com.
