One of my clients today was complaining about his stalled weight loss. This guy is a serious mountain biker and wants to shed a few pounds of fat to help increase his performance. He is also a mechanical engineer and is quite anal about collecting data and tracking progress. I asked what his daily carb intake was and he showed me his "myfitnesspal" stats...... OMFG!!!!! I was shocked beyond disbelief!!!!
Keep in mind, this young man is an early 30 something professional who is fastidious about finding the most accurate information to help guide his choice, and he is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 160 pounds, quite muscular. His profile showed he averages 1400 calories from carbs per day!!!! Yes, he rides hard, but WOW!!!!!
Has anyone else seen such a tremendous example of conventional wisdom leading to this type of issue? How do you help these people realize the fallacy of their mindset.
