I've started Paleo for Athletes 3 days ago. I felt really lousy on the 2nd day and went out for a 25 mile ride anyway. I felt weak and wobbly but still rode an exceptable time. I felt much better today but didn't ride as it's my rest day. This coming week, Mon, Tue, and Wed I have 25 milers scheduled, then off on Thu and Fri. Sat I'm riding a flat 200K, 124 miles and I'm concerned about what I should eat the day before. I've been hovering around 100g of Paleo approved carbs per day so far.
On the bike I usually consume various drinks made of maltodextrine, gels made from the same, blocks, and Hammer Perpeteum solids. I can tolerate solid food as long as it's not too hot out. I've thought about bringing a baked potato along with me, or buying Baked Lays along the way. Any tips on ride day?
What would be recommended number of carbs for my off days? Post ride? I am also wanting to get leaner, I'm 45, male, 5' 11" at 193 pounds.
