Riding makes me hungry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK so I love doing these 35-50 mile rides before work. One because I love to ride, & two to loose some lbs. The problem is that when I ride like this I want to eat eveything in site for the rest of the day. Do you have any tips or ideas that would allow me to ride like an animal without eating like one for the rest of the day?

1. Eat during the ride. Start with 200 calories of carbs per hour and see how you do.
2. Don't ride hard. Hard efforts burn through your stored glycogen, and your body wants to replace them ASAP.

For that distance, I don't need to eat. But I agree with you Terry about the intensity of the ride. I have noticed that a high intensity 40 mile ride will make me more "hungry" than a moderate intensity 60 mile ride. At high intensities, the body burns mainly glycogen and I guess if the levels get really low, the body ups the appetite to encourage one to eat enough to replace the glycogen. At anyrate, I have noticed that I get ravenous after medium length high intensity rides and that is not the case in moderate effort rides.
