A pie? You must be in the wrong forums, this is BikeForums.net, not SweetAndTasty.com

Diet soda, hm, maybe you're right, but I'd rather want someone to drink diet soda than regular soda, at least you won't consume the simple sugars! Also, avoid Aspartame sweetened sodas, they are the devil.

Oh, dear me. That doesn't coincide with my ideas of a healthful diet ONE BIT. And what's with calling veggies "fibrous carbs"?

gahhhhh your list is lacking in taste and is therefore evil. C'mon, lowfat mayo? Everyone knows that regular mayo tastes bad enough as it is! Fruits are an option? Fruits rule! Asparagus makes it onto your list? ASPARAGUS? sugar free maple syrup?!

Where's my Trix? AND WHERE'S MY PIE?!?!?!

Pork tenderloin and lamb are missing from the meats! I also think watermelon should be on the fruit list. Soooooooooo good after a long ride, and hydrating! Don't forget granola bars for during the ride.

Oh, and sorry, I cannot function w/o the odd glass of red wine!

appel - I'm curious as to your qualifications. My limited knowledge is that not everyone needs the same diet. Is this for a 6' tall 150 lbs person or a 5'5 210 lbs person? Man or Woman? Active or Inactive? 23 year old or 55 year old? What is the goal of this diet? And to agree with the Penguin -"Where's my pie?"

I prefer to pick and choose from the four basic food groups myself: high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, table salt, and Chicago-style pizza.

I notice that many of you make humour out of this, too bad.

The contents of that grocery list is nothing more than the cleanest food sources you'll find in your grocery shop. If you want to be healthy, get all the best protein, carbs and fats, then you'll definetly want to eat that stuff. If you want the optimal performance while cycling, then that's the stuff to eat. Want to maximize your red blood cell count? That's that stuff to eat!

My qualifications? I've been into the world of bodybuilding for 7 years, and cycling for 5 years (been on a long cycling break though, but I'm back!). I've read countless of articles on nutrition and health, participated in debates and of course eaten those things
I didn't make up that list btw., it's a well recognized list of things to eat when you want clean and healthy food, no matter what sport you're participating in.

You must be joking right? PORK? (lamb is good though). Pork amino acid build-up is poor, your body will utilize pork protein very badly, because it lacks so many amino acids that your body needs.

Maybe it's time to bring some solid science in here...hmm....

No wine, no cheese, and no bread... No thanks.
I'll just go for a longer ride and enjoy the rewards of my labor.

I ride to live, not for blandness and deprivation.
