Ride End Food Gorge ??!!??
I am suffering from eat a bizarre amount of food syndrome when I get back from my rides, I do approx 20 miles of trail and 10 road every other day, I'm slowly putting on weight, although its not showing, two questions, one is there a chance that I am putting on some muscle weight,, I'm only two months into this type of riding, also what are some veteran tips on how to curb my insatiable post ride appetite,, ? TIA

Ban me once shame on me, ban me twice, your security is weak
Drink some coffee, for me it's a great appetite suppressant.

Muscle weight is the most likely cause of your weight gain. Your eating habit on the other hand is most likely caused by your lengthy rides burning more calories than you are taking in hence your voracious appetite. In the first few months of my riding I rode A LOT and I wasnt eating enough to nourish my body post ride ( I was trying to lose weight) so Id find myself inhaling cereal and pretty much anything in the fridge at 3am lol. Remember your body does not stop burning calories for a while after a rigerous workout. If your body is starving for calories you will be hungry.
Agree, but make sure you also get some good protein in after a workout.
