I'm a 53 year old technically obese man that just happens to put anywhere from 125-180 miles in on a given week.
Clearly - your current attention and focus is on your relationship to food. The details included in your post represent an over simplification of exercise nutrition and hydration.

In practice, cycling is one of the easiest exercises to fuel. And in your case, a self-regulation of diet should be as simple as paying attention to your own body's hunger and thirst cues.

In my experience the pace you choose for riding your century is the most important controllable factor in success. If you apply your attention to pacing yourself, and use a watch to time your rest periods judiciously - I think you'll find you already know how to eat well. You need to "read your body" as well as all the food labels.

Good Luck.
