I have been using TrainerRoad for a few days now Syncing my Garmin activities while i wait for trainer to come in the mail. But the main issue I was having with training was structure. Where to start, how hard to ride, how long to ride, how often to ride. So when I started looked around, TrainerRoad looked amazing for the structure I need. What I am wondering now is if there is a software for nutrition just like TrainerRoad for riding. Something to tell you when to eat, what to eat, when to take a gel in a training ride or how many carbs to consume.
I guess the thing that is confusing me is not knowing the best times to eat certain types of foods that will maximize my training. Like if i know I am going to ride at 430pm today. When is it too early or too late to eat my spaghetti lunch? When should I consume certain carbs and sugars like fruit and a yogurt? 30 minutes or 1 hour+? I never really thought about any of this but the more I read and study the sport the more I realize it matters a lot if you want to maximize your efforts. I just have no idea where to start or any idea how to build a timetable for nutrition and riding.
Is there a guide or program that helps with this for cycling?
