CT is Fasted State Training

    To continue my "Fasted State" training adaptations thread, there is something else which I have noticed that correlates with CT.

    Doing ultra long distance, fasted state and minimal fueling exercise puts the body in a significant calorie deficit. As mentioned I have been doing this for years, yet my body weight has remained relatively stable, my LMM has increased and my BF % has reduced. Again, non-controlled, N=1, so no hard data to go on.

    To put things into perspective, here's an example of one of my days

    Wake: 7am

    Breakfast : 2 x freshly ground coffee's

    8am: pre race warm up run (1hr), easy jog over mountainous terrain

    9.30 - 2pm: 52Km mountain ultra race, tough race over mountainous terrain, ran harder (i.e. at a higher threshold) than normal longer races

    Result: 4th

    Intake During: approx 500kcal

    Post Race Intake: approx 2500kcal

    Conservative Estimate of a 5.5hr mountain run EE = 3000kcal

    Add BMR/PRAL of say 2000kcal and you have a total EE of ~5000kcal... and I still think thats conservative.

    So intake for the day was roughly 3000kcal, expenditure was approx 2000kcal greater.... do the math !!

    There has got to be some serious adaptation mechanisms possibly related to T3/T4 andd leptin going on ?
