Race Weight – Go With Your Gut

In Crushing Iron podcast #340, titled Race Weight, we tackle some of the issues triathletes deal with regarding weight loss and diet. We are by no means experts, but we believe there is an elephant in the room that needs to be addressed. Everything is on the table including body image, guilt, shame, binge eating, strength vs. optimum weight, and power per kilo. Triathlon is often a road to weight loss, but changing a lifestyle comes with a lot of stress and cutting calories is a slippery slope. We talk about finding your race weight and when to be at it. So many diets, so many choices, but what works best for you?

This Podcast covers the following topics: 

  • Going too hard too soon
  • Proving yourself in practice 
  • Weight Control
  • Body image
  • Strength vs Weight
  • Power per kilos
  • Comparing to other people
  • Binge eating
  • Hydration and diet
  • Stress and pounding and weight
  • Periodizing your training
  • “Perfect” Race Weight
  • Giving the body time to adjust
  • Changing too much at once
  • Societal categories
  • Intuitive eating
  • What’s best for you?
