I've been riding consistently now for three weeks. I'm trying to lose about 40lbs and train to ride the MS150. What I want to know is, do I lower calorie intake so that I lose the weight? Or, do I keep eating the same and just ride harder. What I'm doing now is eating less and riding. However, after I ride I usually eat one big and even high fat meal in that day. I'm really confused! I don't think I can complete the ride at my weight, but I don't know what to do first. Train so hard that I must eat or try to lose the weight and train moderately. Any help would be appreciated.
