Hello all. I'm new here as evidenced by my "newbie" title. Just found this forum after not having read any biking forums for a few months and finding that some of the other ones I used to read had up and gone under.
Anyway, none of that is important right now. What I'm wondering is this. For those of you who try to balance the calories you intake, what balance do you strive for? I know this is a subjective and nebulous question with no real "answers" as such. But I was wondering what people here try to strive for in calorie content. I know Balance bars shoot for 30/40/30. And I know that the active cyclist is going to say something like 1/98/1.
So I really have 2 questions. What calorie balance to people shoot for when riding? And what calorie balance do people shoot for in the off-season when too much carb intake leads to weight gain.
Thanks for any input anyone may have.
