Right now I weigh about 132lbs with no gear. I am 17 years old, max heart rate of 175. I am getting back into racing after being away for about 2 years. I try to do 3 5000m rows every day, and strength training with TRX 3-4 times a week. Sort of following your daily training, because money to buy the premium program went into buying a bike.

To the point. I would like to reach ~150lbs (if that is healthy, I don't know.. more or less) eventually, but basically just gain some weight. I have been 130lbs since I was 15, but I feel like I need some more strength for the unexpected on the track.

What are some foods I should be eating, and some foods I should avoid? I refuse to eat anything from a fast food store, don't drink pop, beer, or anything really other than orange/apple juice, 2% milk and water. Usually my diet is fairly consistent. I'll list it, and if there are things I shouldn't be eating or should be eating, please let me know. I am willing to learn.

Bowl of Shreddies, Vector, or Rice Crispies and 2 glasses of Orange or Apple juice

Usually whatever Mom leaves me, so macaroni and cheese or Kraft Dinner, maybe some leftovers like porkchops or steak with hashbrowns and gravy.

Potato/rice/noodles + Hamburger/pork/chicken/steak + corn/carrots/peas/ fresh veggies

Usually don't have any. I considered almonds or peanuts but really wasn't sure. Usually a couple home made cookies and I like to eat a self-grown carrot every day.

If you want to gain wait that you can actually make use of on the bike you need to get on a strength training program in the off season, or start a couple of times per week, using multi joint movements as these will transfer over to the bike. tHe TRX is wicked but proper strength training will give you the absolute best and quickest results. iMagine how easy all the body weight stuff will be when your twice As strong as you are know, you'll be a machine :)
