I'm not sure what the point of this post is, nor why you linked to a video that isn't in English.

I don't understand either the original post, or why someone would
a) argue against carbs before training, or
b) consider a banana or apple (two of the most universally popular and recommended fruits to fuel rides) "too many" carbs.

He's in Turkey. Turkish language. Probably just looking for a compatible audience.

I have had good luck with eggs, usually as a plain omelette. And black coffee.

My pre-ride meal is usually oatmeal with a couple of eggs whisked in before cooking. Dash of cinnamon, a few other spices. Makes a custard type texture and flavor. Add some butter and sliced banana. Ready to go. That's what I'm having now before riding and it's already mid-afternoon here.

I am a late sleeper and don't eat breakfast. Most of my rides start two hours after I get up. I usually drink 16 oz of low-fat chocolate milk about 30 minutes before heading out. It's a good single source of hydration, carbs, protein, and fat.

Even if one eats breakfast, whatever the time of day, this is a good idea. Carbs and protein, yes please. And it's "real food."

I like Bananas with peanut butter before workouts. I keep a jar Of PB at my desk at work and bring in a new bunch of bananas every week. It’s usually my quick snack before I work out over lunch.

coffee only in the AM for me.

Before a weekend long ride or race, oatmeal and some coffee. Morning rides during the week, nothing, well, coffee, but no food usually. Evening rides, whatever I had for lunch that day, and probably an afternoon snack (pb pretzels usually).

If you're riding hard, you're burning a lot of carbohydrate and muscle glycogen. You need to eat carbs to replace what you've used.

Most of my bike rides start early in the morning. I like to eat a big breakfast about 60-90 minutes before starting my ride...My strength training workouts are done in late afternoon or early evening and I like to drink kefir or yogurt blended with whey protein powder, about 30-40 minutes before my workout. After my strength training workout I eat a normal meal very high in carbs and protein.

Eating before hard rides risks vomiting. In the following thirty minutes you need carbs to replenish your glycogen.

Eating before slower rides under four hours is unnecessary and impairs weight loss. With riding at an endurance pace producing appetite suppressing Peptide YY, you finish don't finish appreciably hungrier than if you didn't ride.

On rides over 5 hours, it's time to start slowly eating energy bars which are mostly carbs when you begin riding.
