Hi guys - so I’m relatively new to structured training but upping the ante as doing the Fred Whitton sportive in the UK in May (112 miles with c.15,000ft of climbing).
I’m fairly sporty generally and eat pretty healthily, but wanted some practical advice on adapting an already healthy diet to meet the demands of training. I’m 6ft 1 and c 72kg so not really looking for weight to change drastically. A typical days food for me would be:
Breakfast - 2 rounds of organic peanut butter on whole grain seared toast with jam and banana (set most days and generally my go to snack!)
Lunch - sandwich (usually ham salad) with a few crisps, tomatoes / apple etc …
Dinner - protein source with carb and veg (salmon, broccoli and brown rice / chicken thighs with butternut squash and Greek yoghurt / Thai curry / stir fry)
Snacks of Greek yogurt with chia seeds, honey, walnuts. The odd chocolate, biscuit and alike.
I guess looking for suggestions to add to / swap to accommodate increase in training load. Tend to workout in evenings although trying to get morning workouts going. Can anyone recommend any links / suggestions for some really good pre / post workout meals. Lunch in particular tends to be a meal I struggle with beyond a sandwich. Or general advice to improve nutrition.
Help much appreciated !
