    Not with bananas, they're one of my favorite bike foods. Lots of things give me reflux/indigestion during hard efforts and races. I usually put a couple tums in my ziploc w/ my food.

    Na, they're kind of a standby for me, actually. Bananas and raisins are my normal Saturday morning foods on the bike. Sometimes (if I'm treating myself) I'll go for a sandwich of 'Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Spread', which is basically Nutella for adults (i.e. much less sugar). The sandwiches usually come out on longer, less intense rides.

    One of these days, I'm going to pack a sweet potato. I eat them all the time, and I think they'd be good on the bike. I just haven't come across the right opportunity of ride and want-to.

    BTW I told the elevator story yesterday to a group of ladies here at the office and I wasn't sure they were going to make it they were laughing so hard.
    THough my stories are funny while written, with my theatrics while telling them I can be quite a character (and modest too)

    How big of a calorie deficit do you guys run while training and trying to lose weight? I am running about -1,000 daily but feel like it might be too much of a deficit.

    1000 calories is _way_ too big of a deficit. Take it to 250-500/day. That's 1/2-1 pound per week. It's still really, really tough to do it without losing a bunch of muscle (You'll lose some muscle no matter how you do it), but at least it's realistic.

    I can live with that during early base but not when I'm doing a lot of over threshold stuff. For build periods I try to fuel for what I'm doing.

    I often find myself around 1000 during December and early January to get the initial fat/water weight off. By this time of the year, I rarely go over 500 without feeling sluggish or losing muscle. Unless you are substantially overweight, 1000 is a bad idea if you want to race soon.

    If I go beyond -500 per day I just get so ravenous that I eat everything in sight and end up with a net surplus.

    That's not even cooking. It's just mixing. Really easy. Learn to make basic food. It's required that by the time you hit 18 you have to be able to make a reasonably edible omelet. The rice bars are easier.

    Actually, you should be able to cook a decent, balanced meal by then. Otherwise, you'll end up being known as "Permanent Momma's Boy".

    I agree. Learning how to cook is important, assuming you care at all about the taste or the nutrition of the food you eat. Some people just shovel in any old junk.

    Being able to cook also impresses women.

    Most of the food in Lim's book is easy to make if you have even a small amount of skill in the kitchen, but he doesn't explain basic technique. I learned to cook out of Joy of Cooking but that's not what I'd recommend. It's like learning to program from the K&R C book.

    This. It really doesn't even have to be impressive. The fact that you can put together a balanced meal without her doing anything will earn some serious points.

    Careful though, don't get to good at it or you'll do all the cooking.

    So what then? Get just good enough so that you can point out all the things she is doing wrong?

    Chicks dig that. And movie quotes.

    I just want to say that the past month and a half has had me rethinking a number of things.. I've taken to making a large spinach, onion, and cheese omelette before some of my recent 5-7 hour rides, instead of doing the oatmeal/carbs bit. Never once came close to feeling a bonk, or tired, or anything. Just keep eating on the bike like I normally would.

    This has been an interesting thread and I have little to offer except this;

    "The most awesome daily oatmeal recipe ever"

    1/2 cup organic rolled oats
    1 cup unsweetened vanilla flavored almond milk
    2-3 tablespoons organic ground flax seed meal

    cover and microwave on high for 2.5 minutes (adjust as needed)
    while it cooks prep 1 cup of fruit in the one cup measure that you used previously.

    organic frozen blueberries from costco and/or
    cut up strawberries and/or
    blackberries

    heat in microwave for 100 seconds
    While heating the fruit, stir into the oatmeal

    cinnamon
    sweetener of choice (I use stevia or truvia)
    1/2 or 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (depending on needs)

    Stir in the fruit and enjoy.
    less than 400 calories and stays with you all morning
    great balance of macronutrients and fiber
    takes 7 minutes total to prepare.
    ENJOY!

    And yours sounds pretty close to mine. Add Goji berries, 'Very Green' from TJ's, walnuts, psyllium powder and ginger spice. I use the 'protein blend' I've mentioned, but that's small potatoes. I also use 'Coach's Oats' which is a cracked oat with a similar consistency to steel cut. Again, doesn't really matter. Funny how we've gravitated to the same thing independently.

    Every once in a while I will do the omelet-loaded-with-veggies thing for breakfast. Delicious. In fact, I might do that for lunch today.

    Yeah that is interesting; I have been eating this for breakfast for a while and never tire of it though I do go for an omelet once in a blue moon. Frankly, it is so good tasting, it is like dessert for breakfast.

    After rides, I like to eat as much protein as I can find (I really need to get some more protein bars). Last night after 2 hours with a 5x5 @ 100% I ate a fried egg and cheese on a bagel, raspberries, a hand full of almonds, banana, and a bowl of no-fat yogurt + granola. That's about as much protein as I can find. One question though:

    I have a rest week this week (1 hour rides @ 100 rpm, HR no more than 75% max) and I don't know what to eat. Should I just eat like normal, or try to eat a lot of protein or carbs? Thanks!
