    Nutritional Program

    I am completely and utterly new to biking. I just got a 7.3 FX for my birthday.. its great I love it. But im trying to lean out for the next sports season.. Im currently 5'11", weigh about 185 maybe 190.... and im 14. I know big guy right? please.. dont make fun of me. anywho, heres my plan... anything you think i can change
    NOTE: im trying to keep this on the d-l with my 'rents, but i can bike to the local whole foods or roche bros if i need to for stuff..

    anyways, each day is included with a 1.5- 2 mile bike ride. or at least as many days as i can.

    Breakfast:
    Either a piece of fruit with a smoothie that includes flax, oj/water, yogurt, and frozen fruit
    or 110 calorie heatable pancakes with fruit and milk

    Snack:
    Nutrigrain bar with skim milk for protein

    Lunch
    either:
    oatmeil with fruit and raisins (1 serving)
    half of bagel with cream cheese with fruit
    serving of cereal with skim milk
    all of these are witha glass of milk

    snack:1 nutri-grain bar and skim milk

    dinner (if not offered)
    cordin bleu chicked (its low calorie) and water
    or pb and j with milk
    or another smoothie with a protein boost


    C+C on this please. my goal is to lose 20 pounds by the end of the summer

    Vegetables might be a good idea.

    Longer rides would help. 2 miles of riding is like walking from the couch to the fridge. If you have time, try working up to an hour or rwo most days a week.

    ericm said it all. Eat your veggies and work up to riding more than an hour a day.

    The only other thing I would add is you should do some weight bearing exercise. I recommend that you lift weights 2 or 3 times a week. 20 to 30 minutes should be long enough. Also walk/run for at least an hour a week--in place of riding that day, perhaps.

    Have you ever talked to a phys ed teacher, nutrition teacher or coach about fitness? It's a shame to waste all that high-priced talent. After you graduate, you'll pay plenty for personal trainers and nutritionists who are no more qualified than your teachers. And they're a lot more qualified to help you than me or most others on the internet. Believe it or not, most teachers ENJOY talking to students after class or during office hours.
