I am preparing myself for a 3 day unsupported ride later this summer. I have most of my gear. I commute to work, about 6.5 miles round trip. I usually do some longer rides on the weekends.
My problem is I need to loose some pounds (on me, not the bike!). I am trying to make a lifestyle change in the way I eat. I am always hungery. I can understand needing the extra calories because of the riding but I don't seem to be shedding any pounds. I was warned not to starve myself because it will do more harm than good. Am I taking the wrong approach to this? I can easy shed 20 pounds, maybe more.
Had anyone dealt with this before they did their first tour?
