I’m trying to eat better and drop some weight, and I’ve definitely found that some carbs during my workouts and longer rides really help. I’m interested in trying the 90-100g in a bottle approach and seeing if that helps as much for me as it seems to for lots of folks around here.
My question is this…does taking in all those carbs affect the amount of fat I would have otherwise burned during the ride? Say I would burn 400 cals of carbs and 300 of fat per hour…would taking in 400 cals/100g of carbs just cause that to be used instead of the stored glycogen, or would I burn stored carbs too and therefore less fat?
I want to be better at burning fat on longer rides and want to drop a good bit of weight so any thoughts are very much appreciated!
