Dear Lady Cyclist,
I know how frustrating it can be, but do not throw in the towel! All your hard work will be rewarded in the end!
It is very difficult for me to assess your current dietary intake as you do not give a lot of information. I am also unsure of where you got your dietary information from. The best advice I can give you is to see a registered dietitian who can go through your training regime and eating habits and make sure these two are supportive of one another. It is very important to take note of the timing of your nutritional intake - before, during and after your workout / cycling sessions. If you can optimize your intake with the right amount of carbohydrate and protein before, during and after all your training, I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised with the results!
A good sports dietitian will also be able to send you for the necessary blood tests, if she thinks it is indicated.
