I love cycling – training, competing, the whole thing. I love the buzz a great workout session gives me...
But with hindsight, I realize I've spent most of my life feeling like crap.
Sure, I was fast, but the biomarkers spelled impending doom. I struggled with insomnia, fatigue, brain fog... my libido plummeted and my recovery times took a nose-dive. I wanted to train well, but I also wanted to enjoy the rest of my life!
So I transitioned to a Paleo-type diet, reading a book a week on the subject for a year – but that was only half the solution...
The other half came through experimenting with and perfecting a system of functional medicine – I became my own guinea pig!
