    Me too. I never post in this thread because I eat about three times more than the people who post here.

    I either forget to eat and then eat something terrible to make up for it, or I eat like a pig from the start. And at least for the last couple months, most days I'm not exercising apart from walking to and from my car. So...you're probably okay.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    On the bright side, this WAS within my calorie budget for the day!
    You have to fuel your body for your activity level, and as Crankin said, you exercise at a much more intensive level than most of us here do. Ya need food for that

    This thread really helps me, especially when we've women posting with a wide variety of activity levels. I've gotten food ideas from here. I post because it helps provide me a bit of accountability and while I don't post daily (I track everything I eat with Lose It on my phone), it does help.

    Lose It! is a fine phone application, the phone application keeps track of my nutritional proportions along with caloric intake and allows custom foods/recipes. The associated website provides me with reports of different kinds and even shows me what my favorite foods are - in case there was any doubt. I've used this since I started all of this 2.5 years ago and it is very helpful.

    Yesterday:

    Heavy weights workout yesterday with a caloric goal of 2,000 calories (real, not net). Didn't quite make it but I got closer than I have since I started working to increase my intake while working with the tweaked nutritional splits the nutritionist advised:

    B: 2 egg whites, 1 cup steel cut oats with fresh blueberries + a bit of PB, skim milk and coffee

    S: PowerPro bar

    120 minute weights workout (this includes warming up and extensive stretching afterwards so the actual workout was closer to 90 minutes

    L: Luna Chocolate protein bar (had to run errands and no chance for a real lunch)

    S: ANOTHER Luna bar regular, not protien (still on errands and got HUNGRY)

    D: Fresh seared Tuna steak, Bok Choy, 1/2 cup brown rice, homemade veggie soup, small lettuce salad with a bit of raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Skim milk.

    S: friend came over and brought a lovely largish homemade chocolate chip/coconut cookie. I actually wanted a beer but didn't want both. It was worth it, delicious!

    Goal of 2,000 calories for a workout day, actually consumed 1800, I am getting there. My weight this morning is back down to what it was before I started tweaking my diet. I think I would have made my goal if I had eaten real food for lunch. Perhaps...my normal lunch has the same calories as that Luna protein bar.

    Oh but I always think it's interesting! Everyone here has different metabolic requirements based on age, size, and activity level. Also various unique health problems. I started the thread just because I'm curious how others eat within the cycling community. I figured I'm getting just a tiny cross section though. By the same token, I tend not to post here when I'm not trying to accomplish something in training or with fat loss. It just helps to write this stuff down somewhere for me.

    Yesterday was weird because my body just wasn't that hungry.
    3 eggs with parmesan for a late breakfast
    half a bag of buttered movie theater popcorn
    16 mile bike ride
    1 oz cheese
    beef shawarma on basmati rice with pickled beets

    I guess I just wasn't that hungry. Today my brother and sister and their SOs are coming down to my mom's for dinner so I am putting on my chef hat.
    I'm making pork butt braised with apples and herbs (optional bbq sauce and rolls), warm german potato salad, carrot and purple cabbage slaw, deviled eggs for starters (mmm).

    I'm trying to find a sexy new deviled egg recipe. Maybe something with craime fraiche and herbs? If anyone has any ideas I am all ears!

    I made an interesting variation a couple of years back that used canned crab, it was pretty good! The problem, however, is if someone bites into it expecting more traditional stuffed eggs they get quite the surprise! Your idea sounds good and probably safer

    I can't help with the deviled eggs, but shawarma...drool. Anyway.

    Yesterday:
    Cereal with 1% milk
    Small white chocolate mocha
    the equivalent of 2.5 glasses of wine, small amounts of salad, jambalaya, California roll, vegetarian paella (good, actually, but I think it needed that flavor from that comes from browned meat bits), chocolate truffles and peanut brittle. Yes, I was a little tipsy by the end.
    12 oz frozen yogurt (non-fat strawberry/low-fat cheesecake swirl, with strawberries on top, then a layer of low-fat coconut with shredded coconut on top. I have a coconut problem.)

    Today:
    Big bowl of cereal with 1%
    Tea (with 1% milk and sugar), 2 chocolate cookies.
    Chickpea and cauliflower "curry" (really, they're just in a spicy tomato sauce...), brown rice, salad (1/2 arugula, 1/2 spring mix, with sliced radishes and Caesar dressing--it was what I had in the fridge.)
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    B: omelette with 2 turkey-sage breakfast sausages, goat cheese, marinara
    L: 1/4 lb. of chicken salad with red grapes and almonds from the Concord Cheese Shop. This place has the best salads around. This was during the lunch break at the club bike workshop we were presenting at... some of the other presenters grilled us about why we weren't eating the crappy sandwiches they provided for us.
    S: packet of nuts and cranberries,one piece of Iberico cheese
    D: OK, went to the North End, had a stressful drive and time finding space in the parking garage, so we did have a nice walk to the restaurant.
    DH and I shared parts of the 3 course Restaurant Week menu. Shared an eggplant/mozzarella melanzzine and a delicious blood orange salad. Perfect portion sizes. I ordered farfalle with spring veggies for my main course. It was delicious, and it was easy to only eat half, since there was cream sauce involved. I actually found myself scraping the sauce off.
    Had about 2 glasses of red wine and we split the most delicious piece of flourless chocolate cake.

    Rode today so had a target of 2000 calories, didn't meet it but didn't do too badly:

    B: 2 egg whites, 1 cup steel cut oats with fresh blueberries + a bit of PB, skim milk and coffee

    L: Cliff bar + 2 small cups of coffee at church. Then I went to a baby shower at a hospital (she is on total bed rest at the hospital until she gives birth/they induce) - had a strawberry, 3 Townhouse crackers with a bit of cheese and two tiny roast beef roll-ups with cream cheese

    Pre-ride snack: banana/pb sammy on one slice sprouted wheat bread

    1 hour pretty hard ride

    D: roasted skinless chicken breast, 1/2 cup brown rice, roasted kale, sauteed bok choy and mushrooms in olive oil, 6 almonds and a few raisins, 1 beer (pretty shocking how many calories were in this meal I needed them but still!

    Just a little over 1,800 calories consumed, just a tad bit more fat than I needed but other than that I won't complain. Hard to really calculate the calories from what little I had at the shower, so I may be closer to my goal than I know.

    BTW, I am going on record that I LOVE bok choy, and also watercress! I am trying new veggies since I seriously needed to add them to my diet.

    I love bok choy but need to get better at cooking it. I've never been good at stir-frying, which is strange because it should be easy.

    I saw watercress in Chinatown today and wondered what to do with it. Do you cook it?

    Heh, I hate bok choy. Never tried watercress, though. What do you do with it?

    Brunch: Tea with half-and-half and sugar, bowl of cereal with 1%
    S: 1 chocolate chip oatmeal cookie (with walnuts)...fresh out of the oven. Mmmm.
    D: Flank steak (Beef, how I've missed you!) and udon noodles with a soy sauce-based dipping sauce, daikon radish slices, salad. Holy carbohydrate overload, Batman!, but so good. Also, I have leftovers, so I can ride and eat them for lunch...that would be a useful application of carbs!
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    I just sautee bok choy in a bit of olive oil (or olive oil spray) and often include minced garlic and mushrooms. It is great raw as well - I love that you can eat the entire thing, no waste of leaves or stalks. It is great raw as well, and I was surprised to find out that it is quite good for you. It isn't the crunchy water that celery is.

    Watercress is awesome! I've been told that in Europe when you order salad that often what you get is watercress rather than what we would consider more traditional lettuce. I don't know about that, perhaps one of our European members could confirm this? It is great raw in salad or sandwiches, it is great sauteed with shallots or green onions with a bit of olive oil.

    Not all stores carry it, but I've had no problem finding it. Some say it is peppery - I don't find the flavor strong enough to call it that, but it is pretty tasty. Quite nutritious as well, and inexpensive.
