Every year I struggle with my weight during the cycling season. In the off season when I'm spinning or riding the trainer for an hour I can control my diet and slow take weight off. By spring I've made progress but as you can see from the numbers below I have a long way to my lean body weight. When the season begins and I start to ride 2-3 hours and burn 1500 to 2500 calories I struggle on how much of those calories I should eat? During the last couple of year I atually gained weight while riding 150 miles per week? When I don't replace the calories I'm concerned that I'm puting my body into "starvation mode" and when I do I feel like I'm gording myself??
