    Hey all...

    I need some help with food ...

    I'm 16, and I have a very fast metabolism. I eat a bowl of cereal with youghurt and 2 bannana's on top, and I'm hungry arbout 1.5 hours later. So I was wondering, what's some food I can eat that will give me high ammounts of carbs and energy, just for general eating.

    And what's some other type of food I could eat before and during a ride, to actually keep me going?

    I've tried so many different things, and so far none of them have worked very well... but thing I do like are Pasta and eggs. I'll definately eat them. Fish aswell.

    Thanks for your help all :)

    420 is another name for marijuana I think. Police code or something. Anyways, I really can’t help you there. I personally think I eat a lot (lots of snacking, not too into set meals) but others think I eat very little. Before I started riding I never gained weight, and now I don’t gain weight so I figure I’m at least equalizing my intake and output. You might try your doctor, I talked to mine and he said to just watch my energy levels and eat accordingly. Staying away from the blatantly unhealthy foods as best I could.

    What you describe doesn't sound too unusual for someone who's training a lot. I eat breakfast, 10am lunch, 2pm lunch, and supper. In between I snack on fruit, bread (like just a slice) and yoghurt.

    To make yourself feel fuller for longer, try eating foods that are higher in fibre.

    MidBunch, I do the same, I'm eating during class all the time, and yoghutr is a favourite...

    I think I'm just going to go see a sports nutritionist
