Since max.VO2 is relate to weight van Aaken considers the weight relate to tall (weight indice) a very important item from the training and also from the shape condition. DIET. One of their sentences that´s “train daily, train long and don´t eat like a pig” In certain cases he prescribes faster that´s right.
Yes, Van Aaken recommends losing as much weight as is possible. He feels that fasting is important because it makes the metabolism more efficient. Fasting helps to prevent waste products from accumulating in the cells and tissues. That more efficient metabolism, combined with low weight, makes a runner more efficient. It was at first the diet part that got me interested in van Aaken's methods.
Mr. Cabral, all of what you say is interesting. There is still so much that I'm trying to learn (thus my name "late bloomer"), so I would be pleased to mostly listen to you since you know far more than I do. Wherever I can comment, I will.
Thank you for your contributions.
