Hi, I have been active since I was a teenager, mostly biking for a few months but mainly waters ports. Some periods of weight lifting.
Im on my eighth month of my most serious cycling phase and have lost weight.
I've stayed around 180 since high school. But kow I'm 158. I'm rrying to eat a lot but it's har to consume enough calories. Some rides I burn well over 1000 calories.
I'm 6 ft, 34 years old. I suppose I have a high metabolism.
The problem is is that the only food that has xalories is fattening foods, otherwise you have to eat rediculous amounts and I'm not that hungry.
I've tried eating a lot but I'm only maintaining, and my weekly miles atelier going up?
Could there be something wrong like hypothyroidism(also a hypochondriac
What can I eat that is healthy to gain weight? Or do I have to just start earing empty calories and thats ok because I eat enough healthy foods and itamins tht I am getting enough nutrients.
You can be going way over 1000kcal/ride.
What are you eating/drinking during and for recovery?
What's the daily protein intake?
I doubt your hyperthyroid (would cause too fast metabolism) or Hypo (would cause slowing of metabolism). Hypo can be checked primitively by looking for flimsy fingernails, low body temp, cold sensitivity and lethargy. If so check with a doc.
Sounds like your not eating enough at the right times.
