    Drink some coffee, for me it's a great appetite suppressant.

    Yes, chances are you are putting on some muscle weight. As far as your insatiable appetite, trade calorie dense for nutrient dense foods. Eat higher quality, healthy foods, include lots of fruit and green leafy vegetables.

    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.

    I usually drink a shake as it replenishes the body quicker.
