TJ you are really getting on my tits now. You seem completely unable to process what I am saying.
When you eat pure carbs whilst riding, you are just replacing the energy you use at a point where it goes straight to your muscles as fast as possible. When you come home and stuff your face, you are also getting extra fat which you don't need, and it'll be harder to digest which means you won't get the carbs to your muscles for an hour or two.
Yes if you didn't take all that sugar you would need to eat more
So where does the weight loss come into it then?
And I do lose weight when training. I have managed f*ck all training this year due to lifestyle problems, which is why I am not losing weight currently.
Hey, TC's recommendation also has a lot of sugar in it - why don't you tell him he's wrong too?
Listen - I'm begging you. Please please please just LISTEN to what I am saying! Why do you just ignore everything I have to say? I mean come on. Are you the world's expert? Have you got huge experience in training nutrition? Where does your body of information come from? (please note I am not claiming to be an expert, but I have read aroudn the subject a fair bit and been coached). You're not even refuting my points, you are just telling me that sugar is bad. I'm not even drinking sugar!
TC - yep.. althogh I buy plan unflavoured maltodextrin powder at something like £15 for 5kg which works out at 22p/litre.. I find it hard to drink watered down OJ for some reason too.
