Dirk convinced me, through his book PURE POWER, in early 2012 about the power of wholesome foods inspired by macrobiotics. After having followed several workshops of Dirk my enthusiasm has reached levels beyond containment. The first step for me was to wean out the sugars, which was actually a piece of cake (motivation makes everything possible).
During an individual training of 160km I consumed a hearty breakfast of macrobiotic as a test and left out all simple sugars. With only 3 cans of tea, a few innerme bars and some nuts a new era just dawned upon me.
The evidence for me was crystal clear! You do not ever need those simple sugars!
I used to get sick after a long drive and never really knew why! Now I know, it’s the refined sugar and fructose I chose for as a source of energy. When a body is missing a number of substances it react with hunger in the hope that it get these substances. Since I have been taking wholesome foods on long trips I’ve never had a sudden surge of uncontrolled hunger or binge. And I’ve learned to trust my body’s natural innate power.
Because your body is pure your mind will push for more intensity, which will make you stronger. And Innerme PURE POWER will allow you body to recuperate much faster. This makes the chance of injuries so much more smaller because when you resume training your body has recovered fully! I never leave on a long workout without a pair of PURE POWER bars or ENERGY GELS. Once you get used to the flavour and composition of these wonderful products there’s simply no going back!
I have to say that my favourite flavour is still cinnamon. And at the office I always reach for my snack of choice with some delicious Kukicha tea.
