I’m a mountain biker. ‍ I’ve been keto for 3weeks now. After about 7 miles I bonk, I know it takes awhile to fat adapt….so what should I take to eat on a ride? I never eat on a ride, but I have no choice now. Help!!

I take cheese sticks, beef sticks, and nuts. I’ve done this on century rides.

Easily portable things. Packs of nut butters, packs of coconut oil, Mac nuts.

Next time try a protien shake mixed with about. Tap. Of MCT oil. Start oil small with MCT oil but once your body gets us to it there will be no more crashs.

If your body is use to it, and it seems like yours is you shouldn’t have any issues. I usually take some before I hit the road and never run out of energy. The minimum I usually ride is 12 miles sometimes I go 25 to 30 miles no problems.

When I was adapting, my favorite things to snack on were Trader Joe’s coconut oil packets, their packets of olives and I’d wrap up a chunk of feta. Salty foods are your friends. I want to say it was the nourished caveman that suggested the following: squeeze of lemon or lime, splash of aloe juice and 1/4-1/2 tsp of sea salt or pink salt to your bidon. Prior to keto my training would be to increase mileage with every ride. That did not work during adaptation. I found increasing saddle time and going easy on myself was the best. I wish I had gotten a HRM strap right away. MAF is a really helpful way to build that strength again.
