Cutting 'junk' a weight loss breakthrough
Fighting fat in New Zealand
Mike Buckley shares the secret of his 34kg body transformation.
I used to weigh 110 kilograms on a good day, and my heaviest ever was 116kg.
I lost 20kg while training for Tauranga Half Ironman, and another 6kg training for Ironman, which I did this year.
My breakthrough was cutting out the junk.
By junk I mean grains, sugar, bread, processed rubbish etc.
Since then I've lost another 8kg.
A high fat, low-carb diet has really helped as well and I feel better than I have since I was a teen. Being fat adapted, I can now run two hours without fuelling and not bonk.
I can't wait to do Ironman again.
