Hey guys, I have been following the “eat high carb and fang the race” diet, over my first racing season and have had great success.
I’ve got my FTP from 270w to 298w and maintained my 70.1 kilo body weight.
But here is where my problem starts, as my crit season is now over (I live in Australia). I have taken 2 weeks off and am hoping to start my base phase all over again next week.
Although training volume has drastically reduced, my high carb diet has not. I feel super hungry if I don’t eat like I used to.
One goal of mine with the base phase, is to reduce a bit of weight and get that w/KL up.
Here is what happens:
Breakfast - goes amazing
Lunch - even better
Dinner - good
Post dinner - hog 2 bowls of museli because of the hunger.
Do you guys have any tips or suggestions to get rid of the post race season hogging anomaly?
