I still lift, and I do some light cardio on the elliptical, however after work I hit the road on the bike. The problem is that the nutritional differences between lifting and cycling are completely different. I'm used to having a balanced ratio of protein, carbs, and fat and do great with it all day. However after I ride I'm crazy hungry for carbs and nothing seems to curb the cravings. Yesterday I did 30 miles. I ate an hour before, snaked on the ride, and at 30 mins after. I figured I burned 2100 calories. 3 hours later I was crazy hungry. I snacked, ate healthy, ate junk. I would have eaten a football if it would have helped. So hungry after riding, this can't be a good thing. What do you all do?
How are you figuring 2100 kcal?
