t's not that simple. When I'm training normally, I can't limit my intake carefully enough to lose weight.
I can't drop weight in season either..and from everything I've read you really shouldn't. Training intensely + calorie deficit = bad results. It's pretty common knowledge that you burn more fat as a percentage of cals burned at lower intensities, but like Enthalpic said, it's a continuum and also somewhat dependent on the individual.

I'm planning on doing the same thing now that the season is over and for me, I expect my ideal zone to be mid Z2 to low Z3. You shouldn't be bonking if you are eating appropriately on the bike and around your rides.

I've been the same weight for three years, and my training has increased significantly in 2008. No weight loss.
Has your body composition changed? What's your bodyfat %?
