    So it sounds like, from some of the later replies, I need to continue to decrease my calories in order to lose weight. God bless.

    No carbs at lunch - lunch is 98% of the time a salad with cucumbers, carrots, romaine, strawberries, and blueberries. And a little light Newman's dressing. I've been eating it now for almost 3...
  3. I almost never hungry after long rides. Not for...

    I almost never hungry after long rides. Not for hours and hours. The only time I feel ravenous is after a short, high intensity workout, if I didn't fuel beforehand. And on a day to day basis, the...

    I haven't lost in several months which is my frustration. I've started strength training and I actually think I might have gained a few pounds. I'd like to get down to 150-155 eventually, but...

    This was really interesting and actually reading some of the comments helped (for once). I do think I'm under-eating, in general and this is part of my problem - kind of a hard mentality to get over.

    I'm running about 170 right now, a lot of muscle and extra skin from losing a lot of weight over the years. I figured I probably burn 500 calories an hour when riding. If I go by your estimate, I...

    Thanks for the tips (I've been riding for 5 years now - this shouldn't be so difficult)! I will definitely incorporate some of them this weekend. I have Allen Lim's cookbook and really should try a...

    I don't increase calories outside the ride. I generally eat as I normally would after a long ride, which is pretty balanced.

    I have a "denser" breakfast pre-long ride, consisting of oatmeal and...
  10. I think I've forgotten how to fuel properly.

    I ride a lot.
    I ride long distances.
    I ride short, hard distances.
    I usually don't eat anything during a ride less than 2 hours long.
    I feel fine.
    When I get into riding 3 plus hours, I forget...

    Too much salt?

    I was riding the Swedish Days ride yesterday, somewhere in the corn fields of IL yesterday (I'm from Chicago, everywhere else is somewhere in the suburbs to me). It was hot as hell, there was a...
  12. Anyone riding the Swedish Day Ride in Burlington, IL this Sunday 6/23?

    I'll be there, hoping to finish the 125 mile route on a 91 degree day before heat stroke sets in. Anyone else going?

    Gotcha. I'm wearing the Specialized Pro Carbon Road shoe - and I've had a few problems since getting them a few months ago that I've never had before. These weird little problems are the worst. ...

    Did you switch road shoes? I'm sure I'm not helping matters by going from a fairly neutral running shoe, one day a week, to spin shoes, which a much more flexible sole that I wear 2-4 times a week,...

    My spin and road shoes are not the same. My spin shoes are quite old (and well used) and my road shoes are just a few months old. The pain didn't start until this Sunday's century ride. Think it's...

    I thought it could be my shoes were too tight, initially. The pain seemed localized to the left side of the tongue area of the shoe if that makes any sense. Right where it seems to hit my ankle...

    Foot pain? Arch pain??

    Hi all,
    Around mile 65 of the Apple Cider Century, I noticed a pain around the inner side of my foot, near the arch, top of the ankle bone. At the last rest stop I stopped at, I took my shoes off...
  18. Recommendation Revolution Spin Indoor Cycle Studio, Evanston IL

    I have a dusty gym membership that I use in the winter when spinning on the rollers or hooking my bike up to the trainer is painful. The few times (very few times) I decided to try an indoor spin...

    My gf, who has no bike knowledge, also suggested they might have been too loose (which definitely made sense), so yesterday, I tightened them up real good and rode 60. Still had the same problems. ...

    Actually, the fact that they are quite a bit stiffer and was one of the reasons my feet cry had crossed my mind. I'll try a variation of the suggestions and hopefully, something will work!

    Thanks...

    Me too. It's definitely in the metatarsal area. Which is what this insole from Specialized that came with the shoe is supposed to be so good at - protecting that area and eliminating hot spots.

    Nope, not snug.

    This is really baffling me as I chose these shoes because they tauted elimination of hot spots. But I'm also finding that I seem to be the only one that has a hot spot problem. ...
  23. Specialized S-Works Cycling Shoes & Hot Spots

    About 5 weeks ago, I decided to upgrade my old Specialized Road Comp road shoes to the new Specialized S-Works road shoe. I went to a shop and got fitted.

    Great.

    They had to order them since...

    Shoe Review: Karhu Forward

    I've been using these shoes for a few weeks now and the difference is so noticeable from my Nike Lunar Glides that I had to sing their praises. Karhu has a few different models based on your gait,...

    Thanks for the replies, all.

    I'm only 26 and experienced horrible stomach cramping after the 15K I did in November. I attributed that to being dehydrated and getting over being sick.

    I never...
