One of the most commonly hyped calculation in the health and fitness world is ‘as long as the calories used are greater than the calories consumed you will stay within the realm of a healthy, normal weight’. Does that imply than a cyclist’s diet plan can include just about any category of food as long as all the energy used during cycling makes use of all the calories consumed? Not exactly! A good diet for cyclists involves wholesome, nutritious foods that maximize the cyclist’s energy levels and improve performance. Ideally, a cyclist’s diet plan should incorporate a substantial amount of low fat, high carbohydrate foods and plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration.
