Rory McIlroy talks about how he used the monitor to experiment with his body. They said, “Just to see what affect different foods have on my body, and what I react well to and what I don’t react so well to, especially coming into an offseason where I’m trying to go into the gym, trying to build some muscle , not wanting to fuel up with food that is no good for me basically”.
