I just turned sixty....and I'm not liking it. I'm 5'5 and 130lbs but I'm having some cholesterol concerns (on niacin therapy/can't take statins) , now have to pee often and last week had to quit a six mile hill climb after three miles...which really depressed me because I've been riding a lot recently and I'm in pretty good cycling shape...or at least I thought I was. Fact is I not only had to quit but pulled off the road and felt as if I was going to get sick. It passed after about ten minutes but it really took me by surprise.
I've been reading up on the loss of muscle mass after sixty and it's pretty depressing. Unfortunately when you start to dig on the web about a change of diet you get all sorts of conflicting opinions from doctors, body builders, vegans and the list goes on.
So, any informed thoughts on how I can preserve what I have and how I might change my riding and diet to build up a bit more. That six mile mountain in N. GA is still there....sneering at me.
