Complex carbs (like oatmeal) with some, but not a lot of protein. Sandwiches are ok, if you use whole grain bread and not a ton of meat and cheese. Protein is hard to digest and too much will make you feel like crap. What is too much depends on you. PB&J's work well. Whole wheat pasta is also good. Simple carbs burn up too fast and cause your blood sugar to spike and then it crashes causing you to feel tired and fatigued. The "what to eat" thing really varies from person to person and requires some experimentation. What works for me, may not work for you.I have noticed that lately i've been getting really dizzy after i go on a long ride. i keep my hydration up, and usually eat something like a sandwich or some oatmeal before i go riding. Anyone know why this could be? What do you eat before/during a ride?
No, can't say as I have. Do they have Amish there? Actually, the Amish that we have here come from Lancaster, PA. They just come to Germantown to pedal their delicious pork products encrusted in pretzle dough and such Thursday through Saturday.Have you heard of the Germantown in TN ?
The problem I have with low-carb things is that it almost feels like it defeats the purpose of eating it.I will usually eat 3 eggs on some whole wheat tortilla shells. It seems to give me plenty of energy, protien, and it's low carb so it's helping me drop some weight.
