Any recommendations of nutrition books related to cycling or similar exercise?
I would like to learn a few things out of the book:
1) Learn what to look for in terms of types of ingredients and volume of sugars, vs. fibres, vs. fats etc so I can read a label and avoid things that may not be useful for what's needed for cycling
2) Understand what I need in terms of "fuel" (carbs, water, protein, electrolytes, etc.) for a given ride and how to determine this formula
3) List out types of common food that meet certain needs (complex carbs, balanced between carbs vs. protein vs. other) -- real food and bars/gels/sports drinks
4) Not as important, but easy recipes on making my own health snacks to bring with me on rides
This one's good: http://www.moniqueryan.com/books/books.html
I have an earlier edition. Allen Lim's new cookbook (http://feedzonecookbook.com/) has some excellent recipes.
