Discussion and Reviews on Reddit
Looking for tips to complete 1200 miles in one month [R]4 months, 2 weeks agolazerdab posted submission on bicycling.
April 5, 2019
I set a lofty goal for the Great Cycling Challenge, but it's something that I've wanted to do for a while. I believe it's achievable, and I'm very excited about completing the challenge and raising money for such a great cause.
My goal is 1200 miles in the month of June. Currently I ride about 10 miles a day, with a couple days per week being bigger (around 30 or 40). Due to the weather I haven't been able to do any big rides yet, but I plan on ramping up that mileage in April and May. I am very comfortable on my bike and I am comfortable completing high mileage rides, and I can easily knock out an 80 mile ride given enough time. My current plan is to do big rides on the weekends, and fit in some medium length rides during the week.
My primary question is pertaining to nutrition and recovery. On the bike I focus on my carbs and getting enough energy to finish the ride, but are there foods that aid recovery? I'm concerned about having to ride every single day, and knocking out a 40 mile ride following a century. Any help in keeping my body moving on a daily basis would be much appreciated. I have a general idea of what foods make me feel good, and what I should be eating to stay healthy, but I think this calls for a little bit more specific nutrition goals.
Thanks in advance for the help, and if you haven't already, please check out the Great Cycle Challenge. It's for a great cause.

Pick up The Food Zone Cookbook.
Nutrition is a highly personal thing and Reddit is a cesspool of bro-science.
I will say, you're on the right track being concerned about food. Whenever you drastically increase your cycling volume its not uncommon to just get tired of eating so having a plan is helpful.
This leads into an important point; even on rest days you need to stay active (do some light riding) so that you can keep your metabolic systems turning over. Especially when its warm, riding a few hard days then not riding (and sweating), then riding a few more hard days can lead to dehydration and other issues as your metabolic system is stressed and confused.
Favorite cookbooks? [R]2 years, 7 months agoMelorix posted submission on EatCheapAndHealthy.

I've absolutely love cookbooks. I mostly have baking cookbooks, but have wanted to increase my collection to actual food ones.
What are some of your favorite cookbooks and why do you like it? (simple recipes, simple ingredients, cheap recipes, fast recipes, good recipe variety, etc etc.) Both digital and physical cookbooks are great. I've already looked a the one by Leanne Brown mentioned on the sidebar, which rekindled my love for cookbooks.

I have a few favorites:
The Feed Zone - Simple ingredients and processes, and geared towards athletes like myself. However, very beneficial for non-athletes as well!
Skinnytaste Fast and Slow - Again, easy ingredients and processes. These recipes are designed to either be whipped together in a jiffy, or with a slow/pressure cooker. Plus they're fairly healthy!
Whole Food Energy - Might seem a little "hippy dippy", but I love the crap out of this book. It has smoothies! SMOOTHIES. Among other great recipes, of course.
Why is rice cake so good for cycling? [R]2 years, 8 months agoMechanism_of_Injury posted submission on cycling.

Apparently even pros eat rice cakes while competing
Best meal or breakfast before triathlon [R]3 years agobenito42 posted submission on triathlon.
July 22, 2016
Sorry if this was asked before. If so could someone link it to me?
It's my first time doing a triathlon (even though it's just a charity one). So I'm not entirely sure what to eat pre race.

Here is one of my favorites for a long training day, or race day. Try to eat it a couple of hours before you start if you can.
1/2 cup Rolled Oats 1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk 1/4 cup Full Fat Greek Yogurt 1/2 cup Blueberries 1/4 cup chopped pecans
Mix together in tupperware the night before, and put into the fridge. I find it gives me good long lasting energy throughout the day. This is an adaptation of the muesli recipe found in "The Feed Zone" cookbook by Allen Lim and Biju Thomas. I highly recommend all of their cookbooks!

May 6, 2016
So we all know Friel and Allen & Coggan, which make up the canon of modern cycling training books. But I'm looking to expand my collection and if you've got something that's even tangentially related, let's hear about it!

The Feed Zone series of cookbooks are awesome.

Rules of the Road
1) Anyone is welcome to participate and share your ideas, plans, diet, and nutrition plans.
2) Promote good discussion. Simply downvoting because you disagree with someone's ideas is BAD. Instead, let them know why you disagree with them.
3) Provide sources if possible. However, anecdotes and "broscience" can lead to good discussion, and are welcome here as long as they are labeled as such.
4) Feel free to talk about anything diet or nutrition related.
5) Any suggestions/topic ideas?

Cookbook I recently picked up and really like. It's catered towards bicyclists but it still applies. I like how a lot of the recipes use the same easy stuff (leftover rice, chicken, etc) and I don't have to buy one really fancy hard to find overpriced hippie thing like a lot of the Runner's World recipes call for. I don't like to spend a lot of time cooking during the week and the use of leftovers is great. It also has recipes for portable food for refueling while working out.

How do you guys eat? [R]5 years, 5 months agohurricanejosh posted submission on Velo.

I have fallen in love with hard riding. I picked up cycling to lose weight (225 to 170 this morning-6' tall) about 6 months ago and now feel like I'm ready to start learning how to get faster and more competitive with my riding. I've joined a local club that is more social but still painfully fast.
My question is how do you guys eat? Honestly I'm tired of buying new pants. The 32"s I bought a few weeks ago are starting to loosen up and I've subsequently started eating constantly. I've read that sweat smelling like ammonia is a sign that your muscles are being consumed as fuel, which is something I don't want if I'm trying to get fast.
So what's your daily diet like? Are you voraciously consuming calories? Or are you more methodical about it?
Thanks for the insight. Y'all are a wealth of knowledge

i'm 29, 5'9, 145 lbs and have always hovered around that weight. 2-4% body fat.
i've never really counted calories on account i've always been pretty happy with my weight, but i estimate i intake about 2500/day on average, with a weekly 'binge' day of 4000+. un-ideally, i get a lot of those calories from sugars and simple carbohydrates. i ride about 15000 km/year and i find it necessary to supplement my diet with calories through shakes and frequent snacks.
i start each day with a whey shake, creatine, cod liver oil and vitamins A+D. an hour later i have an espresso, a bowl of granola or cereal with high fat yogurt. i'll drink pu'erh tea in the morning as well. lunch is usually bread, pasta, rice, with vegetables. afternoon snack is fruit and nuts. most dinners will have meat, but i eat a veg dinner a couple times a week as well. i'll usually have another snack like crackers/chips/popcorn between 10 and 11, and then a tablespoon of unpasteurized honey before bed (helps me sleep sounder).
about once a week i'll do a super rich meal, whether it's 4-course italian dinner, or a triple cheeseburger with poutine. this might be how i maintain my feeble weight, or it might not change a thing given i've got pretty good habits otherwise.
allen lim is controversial of late, but i'd still recommend his feed zone cookbook for ideas and recipes.

Thanks for posting all these recipes! I feel like I always get stuck making the same meals. In all seriousness, you should make a cookbook. Have you heard of the Feed Zone Cookbook? A lot of your recipes remind me of recipes in this book.
Should I be eating to lose weight or maximize running gains? [R]6 years, 2 months agocarthum posted submission on running.
June 19, 2013
by "gains" i mean training potential and recovery.
I know that the best runners are really lightweight, but at the same time I think my training runs would not be as good as they could be if I was not eating enough and I might not recover as well without enough food.
I am training for the 10k (college xc). I am 5'9" and between 155-160lbs.

I got this book and it has some great meal recipes to help cut weight while getting enough nutrients. The foods are filling but low in calorie and it has all the macros listed to help you meet your goals. I'm sure you could find similar recipes online but I really appropriate having them all in one spot and organized. it also has a shopping list so you can just buy everything on it and know you can make every recipe in the book.
If you know how to cook, and don't mind spending $19, I highly recommend it.
