just wondering how much everyone's weight fluctuates between racing season and non-racing season. i'm up a good 10 lbs from where i was last fall and i'm starting to get a little concerned that i'm not going to be able to shed it in time. i'm training alot but also eating alot. do you elite guys have to watch what you eat, or can you just eat anything and everything you want? i think i might have to start "dieting" soon if i want to drop the 10. i hit the christmas cookies a little too hard this year. (btw, i'm about 5'8'' and up to about 150 from 138 last cx season.)

CX season, this year- 136lbs
After holidays- 140lbs
February 1st- 133lbs (Barb was away, and I'm a lazy cook+ big hours getting ready for road season)
These days- 135lbs

I seriously eat as much as I possibly can all the time, and I made a real effort to put weight back on after seeing under 135. I'm racing at least 2 days a week right now and I want to be able to come into stage races at 136-137 so I don't get sick.

I don't eat meat, that's really my only dietary restriction.

For reference, the most I've ever weighed was a little over 150. During january I was on the bike about 20 hrs a week, and now that it's race time maybe 15 hrs a week.
if u dont mind me asking..how tall are you?
