the weight of the nation

We are a very fortunate group of people to have found cycling.  It is one of those activities that almost force us to rearrange our whole existence in pursuit of better performance and a healthier life.  Many people, including myself, have cycling to thank for making them health conscious and for shedding away the pounds.  Before wanting to improve my own performance, I knew next to nothing about nutrition.

An excellent book on optimizing nutrition is Racing Weight by Matt Fitzgerald.

HBO is airing a special tonight and tomorrow called The Weight of the Nation about the obesity epidemic in America.  It can also be viewed online without a subscription.  Check it out.   And be grateful that you have found a sport that helps keep you in check.
