I think this diet may be sustainable for most meals and snacks. Any comments on eating during a long 3-6 hour workout? I can't imagine eating enough Paleo calories on the bike without getting into digestive issues/malabsorption.

I just completed the Bicycle Tour of Colorado. I rode between 3.5 and 5.25 hours per day over a week. The rest areas were stocked with fruits (cantelope, bananas, watermelon, peaches, cherries, etc.) along with energy bars and the like. I ate only fruits and complemented it with Hammer Heed along the way, and I was completely fine (enough calorories and no digestive issues). My understanding is that you can only process 250-300 calories per hour while exercising, so this was a perfect combination and in line with a paleo diet, I believe.
