Hi guys, what are your thoughts on doing a 25mile ride with about 1500ft of climb without anything but water in the mornings? I do eat a bannana, couple of slices of whole wheat bread or a bowl cereal after the ride.
Would that throw my body into some kind of weird metabolism mode? I heard something about morning breakfast being important because it tells the body to maintain the metabolic rate. Without breakfast your body will be tricked into a lower rate to preserve energy.
