i have been using high carb liquids (gatorade) and gels (GU) for energy on longer rides as well as cliff bars, etc. i have decided to go low (NO) carb diet to loose some lbs.. what do you eat and drink for energy that is low carb or no carb? is there such a thing? i though about bringing a bag of bacon or dried meats for energy, just wondering if that would give me the fat turned to carbs that i need for long trips. can't seem to find much on nutrition for no carbs while riding and what to eat before a long ride. should i just blow off the carb diet for the long rides?
