Thank you ACDC!
I will go the same route as you. Weigh myself once a week and cut food on rest days.
I lacked discipline on rest days.... I was craving for food... EditTraining days nutrition:
Breakfast, around 900 kcal - oatmel, corn and/or rice flakes, 1 banana, raisins, a litlle soy or almond milk, water
lunch, around 700 kcal: rice or pasta
on the ride: banana, corny bars (after 45 min. and every 45 min., depends how long the ride was)
after workout, around 400 kcal: 1-2 bananas, dates, raisins, honey, 2-3 cookies, yam, agave nectar
dinner, around 300 kcal: salad with 50-100 gr. of tuna or 2-3 eggs (one yolk) or mozarellaRest days:
I tried the same as training days, but cut on calories. First mistake was that I had only 500 kcal for breakfast! And the day went up with calories..........
Just to get things straight. So you eat breakfast and lunch before you go on your ride? Depending on the ride, I would ditch the breakfast and go for something with more proteins in it - especially if you want to drop weight. It could be eggs or something similar. You get a lot of carbs from oatmeal and such, but you won't be using it for 6-8 hours if I read your post correctly.
You could also get more protein in your lunch, and maybe eat some quick carbs before your ride just to have something. Then after your workout get some carbs(a piece of fruit for instance), as well as some protein(milk for instance). Then for lunch make sure to get some carbs and some protein.
If you ride after your breakfast, then it's ok to get that many carbs. But then I would cut it down later in the day.
