In 2006 Lucas switched his office for one of the toughest ocean races on the planet: The Transat 6.50 Solo Ocean Race from France to Brazil.
Nowadays, he raced over 30.000 nautical miles on the toughest seas, by himself, against the international athletes in sailing. Lucas received numerous awards for this achievement.
In the past 6 years, he became a professional in achieving goals under lots of stress, with minimal sleep.
Week 1 | BaselineIn the first week you will put on your continuous glucose monitor (we provide), start logging your food, mood, exercise and sleep, and just go about your usual routine. This is the calibration part to understanding your baseline.
Week 2 | DiversifyIn the second week you will continue to wear the continuous glucose monitor and log, though we will prompt you to diversify your foods and exercises. This is how we can understand the range and diversity your body has to foods.
Week 3 | ResultsFor week three we crunch your data numbers, and find foods producing the best glucose responses for you personally. In an optional debrief we will explain your results. From here on, you are empowered to eat foods that are personally best for you.
I started Clear because I very often had stomach ache after eating and that was quickly accompanied by an energy dip that I didn't get out of so quickly. I also found it very interesting what Clear focuses on: tailor-made diet! Because you often get tips on what to eat or not to eat, but you have no idea if that works for YOUR body.
The program is also very clear, we started with a group at a time. Everyone had a different goal and different dietary needs (vegan, athlete, etc) and the program manager Jim always took this into account.
In the first week of the program I just ate everything I would always eat (also in terms of quantity and how often). Sometimes it was quite confronting to see (through the sensor and Clear app you can immediately see what the food you just ate does to your body) that you get a huge spike in your blood sugar level making you feel almost guilty, but the first week is mainly to get to know your body.
In week 2 I mainly started experimenting. Food that had a negative effect on my body in the first week was replaced by similar things (e.g. mayo was a big NONO for me, so I tried ketchup or vegan mayo). The program manager also gave some tips from ''let's all try a banana today'' or if I showed a spike on pasta he suggested an alternative. That worked very well so at the end of week 2 you know a lot about which food works well for you.
I learned a lot from it (also because afterwards you get an extensive analysis per person based on the data you logged in those 2 weeks) and I still apply it now. Or if I want to ignore it for a moment, at least I know where my energy dip or abdominal pain comes from ;)
