Ok so I bonked today really badly 20 minutes into my a session on my trainer, I wasn't doing anything hard in fact today was supposed to be an easy recovery day after beating myself up Saturday and Sunday. So I'm spinning along at 17/18 mph nice high cadence watching a bmx dvd and I start to feel faint and shaky, take a sip of some gatorade figure it will go away. Bam five minutes later and I am shaking like crazy, can't concentrate, my body feels weak all over so I get off the trainer. This is the second time this has happened to me in the last week, again during an afternoon ride. My rides before lunch never seem to give me trouble it always seems to be when I ride in the late afternoon.
Now I know this has to do with nutrition so I am asking for some reccomendations as to snacks and timing to make sure I benefit from the food I take in, I am dieting and trying to make every morsel count. It if helps here is some information on my day and what I ate.
Up at 6 no breakfast yet, at gym by 7, 10 minute warm up on bike, then 30 minutes of lower body lifting, plus 100 lower back extensions and 100 crunches. Then off to work from 830 to 3.
Breakfast Dannon Frusion Yogurt 290 calories I think plus an EAS body for life bar, another 250 I believe, and a cup of black coffee.
Lunch, 11:30, a can of slim fast and an eas bar, 220 I think for the slim fast 250 for the bar I believe.
Also drank a lot of about 2 quarts of water during the day and had a couple handfuls of trail afterwork. I got on the trainer around 5:00. Oh and I weigh about 250, which is down 15 pounds since the New Year.
The day above is pretty typical, I usually mix up riding first thing in the morning and afternoon depending on if I have class that night and what time classes go till. When I ride in the morning, post poning breakfast except for dilluted gatorade during my ride, I am fine. Tommorow I may try eating a large breakfast and lunch and reducing my dinner and see what happens. Anyway sorry for the lengthy post but I did not want to just ask for advice without giving you the full picture of what is going on. Thank you in advance for any help and advice, also if you have any more questions let me know.
