For 12years TFP has been testing fat usage and coaching clients how to match their nutrition to their fat burning goals. As an endurance athlete it is so important to be able to last in an event over than 2hrs and handle common training of a week by using fat well. But all humans should be concerned with how well they burn fat as it relates to how well you feel and function today and your risk of chronic disease later in life. Here are some tips we have seen productive in teaching the body to burn fat:
-don't preload with calories for all workouts
-don't take in fuel in most workouts under 75min
-try to eat 3, maybe 4 meals a day
-limit your sugar grams in your meals from all sources
-limit processed carbs
-watch how high your carb % is per day
-move more than just your workout

This testing is something I oversaw for 12yrs at TFP but are now choosing to contract it out so we can focus on training but it will continue to be a foundation of TFP coaching both Endurance Athletes & common fitness people looking to feel well and push off disease. A bonus, they offer a full body Dexascan to tell you your fat, muscle & bone levels in all areas of your body.
How it helps us:
-we know HR zones are right
-we know cal/min in each zone, loss over hours
-we know what fuel you are losing and know need to maintain energy
-we know what is the potential fat burning %, if below, the urgency to make change for to reduce fatigue, injury & bonking
-we know the correlation to future health if low fat burning is the result
Here are the options we have set up for TFPers:
2 Months of Basic Training Plan + 2 Tests = $560
2 Months of Basic Nutrition Coaching + 2 Tests = $400
2 Personal Training Hour Sessions + 2 Tests = $270
