    I've done a couple of 300k brevets since I went primal (and a load of 200s) and have found that by keeping my HR < 70% I just havent needed to eat so often, and when I do eat then primal meals (meat + veg) are perfect. The only time I need carb heavy stuff or energy drinks are if I've pushed it too hard.

    I'm making progress again now thanks, with two changes, one to diet, one to training -

    Mixing up the training a bit with some steady 80% of maxHR turbo sessions, with some 20-30 miles road rides on hilly courses, where I'm at 80% most of the time, but bursts up to 90% on hills.

    Diet wise still largely primal, but taking carbs before and during rides.

    I feel a lot stronger now, my weight went up to start with, then levelled off, then has started to track down a little again. But I think I'm going in the right direction, because I feel so much better on the bike and so I guess some pounds will have to come off in due course.
