Hi there

I'm curious why you can't eat after your ride. That's not that unusual, because often exercise takes the appetite away, and I'm sure many people have the same problem. So if that is the problem, then it's fine, you should not force yourself to eat. However, there is a chance that perhaps you could eat but don't have the opportunity, or perhaps you just haven't planned to eat and that's the reason? In that case, I certainly would look at starting to plan ahead so that you can eat sooner after training. The idea is that you want to put back that energy as soon as you can, because it does help your body control its energy levels a little better.

I do suspect that your problem is most likely related to sugar levels, though there are some other possibilities. It's most likely sugar related though. So what I would try to do is have some fruit, maybe a glass of fruit juice, or an Energade or Powerade, something small immediately after you train, and then an hour later, you have your proper meal. That should help you defend that blood sugar a little better.

Good luck
Ross
