So, the racing season is almost here and you're getting pretty fit& with the exception of those last few stubborn pounds that just don't seem to want to leave. How do you shed those remaining hard-headed pounds without compromising your training? It's as simple as cutting starch out of your evening meal and replacing it with copious amounts of vegetables and salad. Eat normally throughout the day, then for your evening meal, just consume protein, salad and vegetables. The vegetables will provide all of the carbs you need to maintain glycogen stores. You may feel a little hungry before bed, but do this regularly (not necessarily every day) and watch those love handles evaporate.
