Bulletproof Competitive Cyclist Dominating Rides
I am interested in connecting with any other cyclists out there interested in biohacking and the Bulletproof Diet. I want to get my diet and opinion out there since I have been very successful recently with my diet, adapting it to the rigors of spending many hours on the bicycle.
My current receives consists of hardcore 3 hour rides on tuesday/thursday morning which is partially on an intense group ride and long and hard rides of the weekend, up to six hours each day. I am a pretty successful cyclist so far; I've won the overal PRO 1/2/3 in the Mt. Whitney Stage Race and am right now in college and will be competiting next year in the men's A collegiate circuit. I am currently situated in San Diego.
My diet regime:
Before I ride I have my own BP chocolate I make with Arriba Nacional chocolate (I know it is low in mycotoxins), xylitol, sea salt, and cocoa butter. I also have a cup of green tea with MCT oil, cheap bulk mct oil fractionated capric/caprylic acid I buy. On the bike I take dextrose, raw whey, and mct oil. Right after my ride I have raw whey (I get it cheap in bulk) then within the hour I have white rice, mct oil, gelatin (collagen isn't necessary on a cheaper budget, this is the same it just doesn't mix so nicely), grass-fed beef, and grass-fed beef heart. In the evening I also have a large meal with safe-starches, grass-fed meats, and mct oil. On days I don't ride hardcore I do the normal bulletproof diet without safe starches. I have been doing this exact regime for the last few weeks and have been dominating everyride I do. I am literraly bouncing up and down on the bike. It is just wonderful so I wanted to share this with other endurance athletes out there so they can enjoy excessive energy as well! I do six hour rides in the mountain and can drill it the whole way!
The dextrose I use right now is from corn, but I just ordered rice dextrose from truenutrition so no worries.
I also very much disagree with the general view in the BP community that endurance exercise in bad for long term health and/or that it shortens life span. Everyone I know who has taken up what I do is younger, healthier, happier, and living more in the moment, with an increased quality of life, which is the point! I know a 70 year-old that took up ultrarunning when he was sick and in his 60s and he reversed his ailments and looks younger than he was ten years ago. I have superior energy when I am on my hardcore regime and training to my limits.
