Hello everyone,

I am new to mtbing and am starting to go out for small and longer rides. I am unfit and have recently given up smoking and i weigh 20 stone and am 6'1. I need some advice on what is the best food to eat before a biger ride so i have enough energy to cope with the demands of the ride, but at the same time lose weight so i can become fitter. At the moment i am having special K with banana in the morning before a ride and then having a bigger high protein meal after, am i doing the right thing can anyone please advise.

Thankyou very much look forward to hearing from anyone.
