You think this is good for you?
Its not, and you should not get yourself in that state, because like someone stated before, your recovery can take time and you dont have good training in that period.
But there are better ways to do it
How I do it is:
no breaky, train about 3-6hours. in Endurance zone!!!! very important because this zone uses mostly Fat as energy(in theory if you stay in this zone(very easy riding) you should last almost the whole ride). Ride first hour without food, then eat about 50cals every 20mins. This gives just enough energy(for me) to keep a good level of training and forces my body to use as much fat as possible WITHOUT Bonking. Now, best to do these ride by yourself, cause you must always stay in your zone, so very slow on the uphills, but constant.
the good thing about it is, if you ride say 5 hours and spend 3250cals and you have only eaten, 600cals, then you are about 2650cals in minus, plus male is about 1800cals for daliy rate of normal living and you start at 2pm when your home for the day, your at minu 3450cals. You have a big lunch(8000cals - thats huge!) big dinner(8000cals - thats huge!) and a few snakes(200cals) for the day you are 1650cals under. And you helped your body use fat as an energy source.
8500cals = 1kg of body fat.
