Fast Talk, ep 10: Hit race weight the right way  

What is the healthy way to get to race weight? Coach Trevor Connor and senior editor Caley Fretz are joined by Dr. Philip Goglia, a nutritionist to the stars (and Phil Gaimon)to discuss safe and effective ways to drop weight, how to best fuel your training, and why paying close attention to your food matters. A brief disclaimer for today's episode: We can't fully agree with a fair amount of the science used to explain Dr. Goglia's advice. We think if we asked Dr Goglia, he'd agree that he was not trying to give hard science but being more metaphoric to make the advice digestible. The recommendations, though, are sound and helpful to cyclists.
