I am in the process of prepping myself for the HHH century in August but am at a loss what to eat since my main goal for riding is (was??) to lose some weight. I am 6'8 ~275 and am aiming for 220-ish as my end weight. I am riding 60 miles on weekends (+ ~10% each week, started at 40) and 20 faster paced miles each day before work. 3 days riding, 1 day off. I started at 316 in Feb and walked most of it off but bought a bike (hybrid) June 1st with the goal of riding that century in August with a friend/coworker.
Weekends rides begin with a massive breakfast, cliffbars during the rides, gallons of gatorade (plan your routes with 711 store locator open ) and then when I get back I can eat a horse, and sometimes do. My appetite during workdays has increased significantly, too. Needless to say I am not losing much weight at this rate. Am I going to have to make a choice between that century and losing weight or am I over thinking my nutrition?
P.S. I haven't seen many people locally that swallow up a bicycle quite like I do, nice to see there's more out there not worried about looking like an average adult would tooling around town on a pocket bike
