Here's an easy acronym for energizing foods to help transform you into a leaner, more powerful cyclist:

G  Greek yogurt (protein for muscle repair, calcium for fat-burning)
O  Oatmeal and other fiber-rich whole grains (long-lasting muscle fuel)

F  Fresh fruits, including apples, oranges, bananas, and berries (antioxidants for muscle function and repair)
A  Almonds and other nuts (healthy fat for energy and immunity)
S  Spinach, carrots, broccoli, beans, and other fresh vegetables (vitamins and minerals for optimum muscle health)
T  Turkey, chicken, salmon, tofu, eggs and other lean protein (help you feel full for longer)
E  Electrolyte drinks (essential for hydration during workouts)
R  Raisins, dates, and other dried fruits (packed with antioxidants and fiber)
