I don't know why I didn't think of this when I replied previously but you can also use sweet potatoes and squashes for your starch instead of grains if you are having problems. Check out some recipes in the McDougall diet.

All the controversies in the vegan world... Starch is an important element in our diets, but you're probably wise to eliminate ezekial breads if you think they're causing you a problem. You can always add some in later, maybe a little at a time to see how they effect you. It sounds like you're doing great, thinking things through, eating a healthy diet and exercising. Cheers to you!

For me I find it best to stay away from processed carbs (bread, pretzels etc.) and stick to brown rice, quinoa, millet etc. I also love hummus and try to eat it with raw veggies.

On my long rides I like to take dates with a touch of almond butter in the middle. But my longest ride last year was only 40 miles. I have to try BB's gels this year.

I would recommend no grains. Also look into green smoothies. Greens are imperative for health. Raw organic of course. Look into my team for further info. Regarding carbs we need them in raw fruit form. They fuel us.

Two weeks ago you welcomed me to your team and i've been following the links and suggestions. This is what I've found out about my bio/chemical self. Carbs in the form of wheat...even Ezkiel sprouted seeds bread seem to create a craving. Not sure, may be a depression issue. Or does the wheat carb support depression? All i know is today I'm giving up Ezekiel Breads.
I've gained weight but it's due to overeating Hummus, ezekiel breads. I will discipline the source my carbs. I too, have a huge salad with a cup or two of cooked vegtables. LOVE soup made of a touch of organic broth diluted with water, a touch of Braggs amminos and collards, or swiss char, or bok choi.
For long bicycle rides I take brenndan braziers fuel shake mix for electrilytes, protein, etc.
Sooo looking forward when I'm free of working hard to find a way of eating that keeps me from craving, at a normal weight.
Thanks all
