Ok, I have been taking racing seriously this season. Since January I have been monitoring my daily eating. I have also been buying supplements that have been working great with the training.

The results so far are awesome. I have 5% body fat and weigh 163 lbs at 5'10. I feel great.

Now... since I want to continue that trend, I was reading that during racing season protein intake for a guy like me should be 120 grams per day. Does anyone follow thei protein intake? And do you guys have any advise from past experiences?

Find a nutritionist...

Good job with getting lean. If you are interested in nutrition, you should monitor EVERYTHING you eat. Talk to a sports nutritionist to work out a nutrition plan and buy a gram scale. Weigh your food, and learn about how food works. It's difficult, and obsessive, but so is training. And it will make you feel great.

Good nutrition skills are the last thing that serious riders tackle (some never do), but it is one of the things that will help you make good food choices for the rest of your life, not to mention the performance increase you will gain from eating only what you need, when you need it.

Plus, when you stop racing, you can really enjoy eating whatever you want again, but you won't feel the need to eat "American Style Portions":thumbsup:
