Hi from Spain!


Recommended Posts

Hi i'm an Englishman living in Spain.

I actually joined this forum in 2011 when i went vegan.....which became a disaster and after nearly a year i went back to more of a paleo diet.

I'm a cyclist (mtb&road) who is now in their 50's who has been fairly successful in competition over many years i found i lacked power and disappointed i didn't see a weight loss after going vegan.

Well i am trying again and have been meat and dairy free for 3 weeks now and approaching it a different way....instead of fake meats etc,etc i'm going more high carb low fat and seems to be working i have power and feel fresh the next day after training and don't miss a training session,which was happening to much before.

I will include what i eat most days at the moment and any advice is always welcomed.


Breakfast: Oats mixed with water topped with bananas and berries


Fruit juice


Dinner: Training day: Taken on the bike Torq energy drink and bars. (check them out at torqfitness.co.uk)

After training a recovery smoothie with bananas,berries,cucumber,broccoli,apple,water.


Dinner: Non training day: Huge fruit salad or huge green salad....or both!


Evening meal: Baked potatoe/s,baked beans in tomatoe sauce and more salad or gluten free rice pasta with a sauce and vegetables.


In between meal snacks: Fruits,Melon,bananas,apples,oranges.


Well that will do for a first post.
