plan to start lunch riding..

i have an hour lunch like most ppl and i want to be able to get in some workout. i had in the past ate before lunch and during the ride, wanted to hurl instead or riding on.

so since then, i ride on an empty stomach. but last weekend, heat was bad, and i bonked. rested for about 20 mins and back on the ride again.

my goal is to lose weight and get rid of my belly fat. i'm trying to get back on to my 5 small meal program, but not sure when i should eat my lunch, before or right after ride?

8:30AM - plain oatmeal (to drop my cholesterol)
10:45 - eat a fruit
12 noon - eat small lunch
3pm - eat fruit
6pm - eat normal dinner
7:30pm - sometimes a fruit or a glass of wine

If you want to ride with any intensity at lunch you should be eating more in the morning. Try eating most of your lunch at 10:45 instead of the fruit. You want to have your glycogen stores topped up before your ride. Plain oatmeal is only a few hundred calories at best plus a hundred for fruit is OK for your morning if you aren't riding. If you ride hard for an hour you'll be burning 600-800 Cals of carbs.

greg.. thanks for the tip. my ride won't be too intensive, just about 8 miles to start round trip. i brought avacado today, so that'll be my fruit to eat around 10:30ish. and got some rice crispy for the ride.

I'm sure the avocado is good for you but it's mostly fat which is not going to be useful for cycling. Better to have something with mostly carbs.
