    I ride my bicycle an average of 20+ miles a day. It varies. I am training to make the run from Manali to Leh (400 miles at 10-15K feet) in August. I might have to wait as long as until early September, depending on my conditioning... right now I feel like I have the plague, and it might set me back a bit.

    Anyway, there is no Whey protein powder in Goa. There is no gatorade either. There is no Cyto-****s.

    I have at my disposal:

    Soda Water (mmmm)
    Coconut water
    Sodas (Coke/Pepsi/Thumbs Up/Limca)
    Refined Sugar
    Table Salt
    Light Salt for Potassium (maybe... have to look)
    Ice Cream
    Milk Powder (alternative to whey?)
    Milk
    Yogurt I make myself from boiled milk
    Fruits out the wazoo (best bananas EVER)
    Eggs, but I dunno if you can eat em raw here
    etc.

    Right now I usually have a coke mid ride, and drink alot of water... followed up by a coconut water (chopped open in front of me) at the end, and then half a chicken for dinner an hour or an hour and a half later, with a mixed fruit cup with coconut shavings and plain yogurt on top.

    To energize before a ride I usually have rice and lentils boiled, then fried with chillies, mustard seed, and other Indian inventions for flavour. Either that or I chomp down 2-4 samosas with either a club soda or a thumbs up, depending on how much energy I think I need.

    I don't think I'm recovering like I would with whey, etc.

    I am thinking I can buy a blender and mix.... fruits, coconut water, milk powder, milk, sugar, bananas, and salt... but I dunno how much is appropriate of any of those. Hmmmm...

    Any ideas for an "all natural" post-ride shake?

    Dried milk would be high protein... but no, its not whey. Its dehydrated milk.

    Oh Jesus... I didn't even think of the "cycling" thing.

    Also, I just crapped my pants. Do not drink raw milk in India. Boil it, or you will shit your shorts.

    Well, that would be helpful... except I'm not on gear, and muscle milk isn't available here. ;)
