Cycling Nutrition Myths By Global Cycling Network

Cycling nutrition myths busted by Global Cycling Network! Here’s another Youtube video by my favorite channel, Global Cycling Network. At first glance it might seem that Global Cycling Network is mostly focused on the competitive side of cycling. After-all, they ride expensive bikes and wear lots of gear suitable for the podium. But if you look closely, you’ll see that they have lots of information that regular commuters can also benefit from.

In the video, “Cycling nutrition myths busted|Bad Sports Dieting Advice to avoid” Global Cycling Network talks about how proper nutrition can benefit all cyclists. The problem is that there’s a lot of bad advice out there.

They discuss many different myths such as fasting. Eliminating certain groups of foods. Not eating anything during riding or after 7 pm.

Global Cycling Network says that most of these recommendations are myths. And I completely agree.

During the last year, I’ve lost over 38 lbs by eating a well balanced diet with lots of protein. Unprocessed carbohydrates. With plenty of healthy fats.

Plus, it didn’t hurt that I put in many miles on the saddle. Combined with a proper strength training routine. Followed by proper rest.

Proper cycling nutrition was also extremely important

I didn’t follow a calorie restrictive diet. Made sure I ate lot’s of high quality protein from liquid eggs, chicken and tuna. Ate nutrient dense, unrefined carbohydrates from steamed vegetables, oatmeal, fresh beans. and occasionally a baked potato. What I didn’t eat was highly processed foods such as instant mashed potatoes or chips.

During my long bicycle rides during the summer, sometimes 15 miles or more, it was even more necessary to follow proper cycling nutrition.

Global Cycling Network has done a phenomenal job of describing the basic guidelines to following proper cycling nutrition. They broke down the proper percentages of protein, carbohydrates and fats into easy to follow guidelines. Along with some other silly myths not worth following.
