I have read many threads on Nutrition, Macros and those discussing Matt Fitz. book the Endurance Diet but can’t really find what i am looking for so ill throw my question out here and if someone knows of a thread that already exists please send it along:
I am a 77KG and 5’10" - Cat 2 CX racer and try to ride 6-8 hours (limited with newborn) per week during the race season and i am just looking for some guidelines on how much Protein, Carb, Calories, Fiber and Fat i should be in-taking.
My goals: i think i could lose 2kg in a healthy manner but MORE SO i rarely feel recovered and fresh and i would like to look at my diet as a possible solution (assuming i am doing my race/recovery routine right).
I did a deep dive of my daily diet as i eat pretty much the same thing everyday:
Calories: 4200 (Seems high to me - i eat a bunch of Nuts/Nut butter)
Carbs: 284g (seems low to me and maybe why i rarely feel fresh and ready to race)
Fiber: 42g (seems high)
Fat: 151g (seems super high - i eat a bunch of Nuts/Nut Butter)
If you start throwing out percentages of macros etc…you may lose me a bit as i am not that versed in that world, but certainly willing to learn.
Any advice appreciated in advance!!
