Are you sure its not a Trifle Dish ?
Is someone trifling with Plax?
You'll be taken into custardy...
A cigg and a cup of tea is all I have time for before setting off.
But I always have Bannana in my bag and a Cranberry creal bar.
+ I always have a loaf of bread in the Fridge at work.
So I ride in on empty, get changed then eat my Ceral bar, followed by my Bannana then 3 slices of white toast with butter and a cup of sweet tea.
You should get 50% of the energy for the ride down your neck at least 12 hours before the ride begins.
Example; 200km Audax, circular route. Start 08:00 Sunday. 16 Deg C average temp forecast.
Total calorie expenditure 5000ish.
1300 extra calories on Friday evening.
1300 extra calories on Saturday.
600 calories for breakfast 2 hours before the ride.
600 calories at first control.
600 calories at half distance.
600 calories at third control.
I'm trying to get rid of some flab, so I don't eat any extra on Friday evening, and reduce the feeding during the ride to 300 calories at each control.
On a 100km, I have a 600 calorie breakfast and a 600 calorie snack at half distance.
On rides less than 50 miles, I don't eat anything extra to my BMR.
Two bananas half hour before a quick 20 mile stint does me any more and i shove some toast in for good measure.
A big bowel of porridge with some suger and a cup of coffee, start to get hunger pangs around 9.00am have my break at 9.30.
There's going to be some very wicked comments about your method of cooking porridge.
I just eat as much as I can - usually this is a huuge bowl of cereal, but sometimes the toast, banana, smoothie, more toast, yogurt gets in there aswell.
quick small bowl of c flakes before ride. on return tea, toast more corn flakes and yoghurt.
I much prefer mine in a BOWL..................
Seriously tho....do you really NEED to eat breakfast??? I very rarely do, maybe some cereal mid day but I dont feel the need to eat much early on.Went for a 26 mile spin today and apart from 5 bottles of waterhad no food and felt fine.Felt great infact! Had some cereal when I got home so in no danger of wasting away
Ohh balls, i mean bowl but you knew that
Yes, you do;
Oh , no you don't;
They say you should eat a little often.
