I think this got it.

I actually weighed my normal mid-later day weight after a ravaging 1:20 on the TT bike on Tuesday. But, my water % on the scale had gone WAY up. Then after a lot of pee that evening and a solid night time pee, the weight during my normal after breakfast weigh in the next morning was down. Water weight % back to normal. But, glycogen not likely restored yet as I am NOT a big breakfast person any longer.

Some yogurt and a black coffee if I'm not riding early in the day. I simply found the "eat now so you don't eat a lot later" did not work for me. If I ate a good breakfast just to go sit at work, I still would eat the same lunch, same dinner, same evening snack with Netflix.

So, unless I'm riding early day I don't do the whole "nice breakfast" any longer. It wound up just being about 300cal a day of "filler".
