My main goal is to optimise my power to weight ratio.

I'm a cyclist, and ride in the lake district where there are loads of steep hills Cool So power to weight is really important. This site really hits the mark, it's brilliant for motivation, and tracking the macro-neutrient balance.

I started with a very low carb plan which stripped the pounds off amazingly quickly. I'm now re-balancing to ensure I get enough protein (1g per lb body weight) and keep energy levels high at ~ 70 - 80% RDI. Without this site I'd be flying blind.

Thank you so much Fatsecret for such a wonderful web-site Very Happy

Hello and Help Please
