I'm with Ron, I'd up the protein. You don't wan to lose the muscle. And yes Behaze timing is crucial. After a hardcore work out, you have what is called the "golden hour". Your body is ramped up and its the perfect time to build or rebuild your muscle. Immediately after is best but you have an hour window. If your excercise is really that intense you may also want to consider some BCAA's and glutamine too. You may also want to carb up before that ride to give your body something else besides you to use for fuel. It doesnt seem like you'd be "hurt" if you had a day or so interspersed where you were "behind" but if you end the day behind, you start tomorrow behind and you are playing catch up. Just my opinion though. I can't even ride a bike :D

I'm trying to lose a little weight, so on most days I have a deficit of 500 cal or so. At least twice a week I'll do a long bike ride where I burn ~3000 calories. On those days, I have huge deficits. People have told me that on those days I should consume more, but do I really need to stuff myself?

Hi dear fellow, That's so nice if you can loss weight of your own choice and in short time period. But for staying fit forever you must have a daily routine pan, which will help you in future to not gaining any more weight and use also low calories and fat free foods..........Walnut Creek Bootcamps

Thanks, spearfisher. Once again, great advice. I've gone out just today and purchased some protein powder (I can't seem to get quite enough in my regular diet), so we'll see how that goes. The back of the tub also claims it will reduce muscle soreness. Looking forward to that! :D
