- The Cycling Diet
You want to improve your training and your physical conditions on a bike? It’s very good, but do not forget your diet too!
To stay in shape during your physical training, eat more protein, free sugars and carbohydrates! Consume the right amount of calories for your body.
When you are cycling you burn a lot of calories. Be sure to eat enough! Eat several small portion meal through the day. And avoid processed food.
Eat good vitamins (Omega 3 and 6) and minerals (calcium, iron, zinc) to power up your body throughout the day.
Drink enough water! Your body is made of 75% water so you must drink a lot to stay in good shape.
Keep in mind : EAT, DRINK, TRAIN, REST
Make sure to eat 90 minutes before your training session! Remember to let your stomach digest.
During your biking session, energy bars and drinks are good! For long rides we recommend you to eat more before and during the session.
After your ride, we recommend you to eat and drink a lot. The first 20 minutes after the efforts are really important. Do not eat to quickly and eat small portions but with high protein and calories to refuel your body.
Keep in mind to always eat fresh, carbohydrate snack, or high protein foods that also contain good minerals and vitamins. You can eat small portions throughout the day.
Remember also that the diet work with your mind. Stay focused during your training sessions and eat well before and after. You can also relax your mind with yoga and meditation. Yoga is also really good for digestion. Always think about your diet and your initial goal!
