ok, i ride usually for over two hours,
but lately, i've read about how if we
aren't consuming enough carbs the
body will preferentally(sp) burn muscle.
So i'd like to avoid that, but i also would
like to burn as much fat as possible--which,
BTW, i've got about 15 extra lbs. --if anyone
needs any?
And then, just for my own curiosity, how can it
take the body 1.5-3 hours to digest a 'simple'
complex carbohydrate--like maltodextrin--but
i swear it's effects are felt for only like 30 minutes??

many thanks for any light--or fat-- anyone can shed on
this
