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... :?

Edit
Training 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 mozarella

Rest 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.

Currently weighing in at 76,3 kg's at approx 178 cm. A bit too heavy, but will cut it down to around 74-75 kg's within a months time. Took a picture a month ago when I was down around 75 kg's. I'm not what you would call skinny.

Edited: Pictures, I guess someone was scared of underwear, although the fabric's thicker than my bibs.

More than last season, but power numbers are also much higher than last season. Set my best FTP test numbers, set my highest average for a 5 x 30s interval set. Set PRs on my local climbs, so must be a good combo. I am getting to the point where I feel I am in my range of optimal race weight for me mentally and physically. We would all like to be lighter, but I also like to enjoy sitting down with my family at a meal and not nit pick everything on the plate. We do a lot of cooking at home with fresh ingredients, lots of green vegtables and I eat fruits and nuts all the time. A well rounded and balanced diet. I enjoy homemade pizza with these same ingredients and it keeps me sane.

HUMP

Thanks for the tip!!Now I see what I was doing wrong. Too many carbs.....

This a pic from last year. Taken after 5 hour ride/160 km ride and after a big portion of pasta bolognese, salad and about 1 liter of water. 68 kg. Next day after all the fueling, 71 kg :)

I thought I could get skinnier legs if dropping weight. But slowly I am realizing I am only getting skinny arms :?
I mean, my legs are skinny after a longer ride. But this is probably because of muscle contraction. Right?

You don't have that much fat on your body, or at least it doesn't look like it. If you want to drop weight, you'll need to get rid of your upperbody muscles - especially arms and pecs.

I only want skinny legs! :)
My calves are huge.

Is it possible to get my legs skinny, but at the same time maintain my upper body muscles?

Get one of those bikes where you use your arms instead of legs :thumbup:
