Details: Product Description Athletes know that proper nutrition is important, but finding the right balance can be complicated. Fuel Your Ride is a comprehensive guide to performance nutrition for cyclists and provides all the tools you need to customize a unique nutrition plan to achieve maximum performance. This book teaches riders everything from what to eat on race day to avoid the dreaded bonk to how to lose weight while consuming enough nutrients and power hard training rides. Fuel Your Ride combines the expert advice of numerous nutritionists, coaches, and professional cyclists to present a simple, clean, and whole foods approach to eating complete with easy-to-follow recipes that include delicious and nutritious vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. In addition to chapters on in-exercise food and hydration, supplements, and weight loss, special attention is placed on what to eat and the best time to eat, taking into account the different nutritional requirements for training rides, race performance, and recovery. Fuel Your Ride provides cyclists with the comprehensive nutritional information you need to efficiently power your rides and perform at your very best. Review Molly Hurford has taken her years of experience, both as an athlete and a journalist, to create a comprehensive, easy to follow, no BS guide for fueling the cyclist. Merging this experience with the expertise of dietician Nanci Guest makes this a go-to guide for any cyclist looking to improve their overall nutrition and fueling for performance. - Stacy Sims, MSc, PhD, Exercise Physiologist-Nutrition Scientist "As a mountain bike racer who loves to eat, I know first-hand how much of an impact nutrition has on training and racing performance. But as this terrific book illustrates nutrition doesn't have to be boring. If you want to feel great, ride fast and avoid the bonk, this is the book for you.” - Evan Guthrie, Pro Mountain Biker for Norco Factory Racing in Canada "Whether you've been riding bikes your whole life or are just getting started, this book has so much high quality digestible information about how to improve your overall diet for a better ride and a better life! If ever a nutrition book could be described as a riveting page turner, Molly Hurford has done it with Fuel Your Ride." - Olivia Dillon, Pro Road Cyclist About the Author Molly Hurford is a writer-at-large for Bicycling magazine and a level 3 coach with USA cycling.

Every single person--racers, nutritionists, and coaches--I talked to said this over and over, so it's worth repeating. On your race day, or that epic endurance ride you have marked on your calendar, your breakfast and ride fuel are only a small part of the equation. How you've been eating for the past few months plays a huge role, not just in body composition, but in how you digest, how you use energy, and how you perform. You wouldn't start training the morning of a race, would you? So why should your nutrition start then? The first thing we want to focus on is where we are now. Without knowing how well (or poorly) you're eating, it's hard to know what to tweak to fix your diet. And when it comes to macronutrient breakdown, most people are surprised by what the breakdown actually looks like for their daily diets. Hint: Carbo
