    I'd hope that's not all you're eating. Even if it isn't, that's far too many sugars/refined carbohydrates, unless you're riding for hours and hours and hours each day. Most of that stuff, like powerbars, are little more than "health/performance" branded candy. Look at the ingredients, high fructose corn syrup is at the top of the list for the bars.

    Where are your complex carbohydrate sources? Lean proteins? Healthy fats? Supplements should be used as supplements, they don't replace real food at all. You need to get fruits, veggies, whole grains, healthy fats, and lean protein in your diet. Having all your food come from technically labeled and packaged sugar isn't going to help you unless you like highs and crashes and potential weight-gain and insulin sensitivity further down the road.

    What is that you're drinking in your photo?
    The world has a lot of starters but very few finishers.

    Taking a tip from Siu Blue Wind, I too am typing a lengthy passage of text down here to demonstrate the enormous amount of space available should one wish to use it-- in sharp contrast to the avatar text above this part.

    Let's see, I had:

    Breakfast: hominy, eggs, corn bread, muffins, flapjacks, chops, fried potatoes, a beefsteak, and a full gallon of orange juice.

    11:30 am: 2 dozen clams and oysters.

    12:30 PM (Lunch) additional clams and oysters, a brace of boiled lobsters, 3 deviled crabs, a joint of beef, and several kinds of pie.

    Afternoon tea: a platter of seafood washed down with lemon soda.

    Dinner: 3 dozen Lynnhaven oysters, 6 Crabs, 2 bowls full of green turtle soup(appetizers)
    Entre: 6 lobsters, 2 whole canvasback ducks, 2 portions of terrapin (turtle meat), a sirloin steak, vegetables, and an entire platter of pastries for dessert.

    Afterdinner treat: 2-lb. box of candy.
