Eat after you are done riding. Try it a few times.. If you don’t eat you won’t get hungry. Your body will go into ketosis (burn stored fat)during ride. Thinking you need to start with 3000 calories is all mental.Holy crap, not eating before riding sounds nuts! lol I bet i'd crash on the way to the hill without breakfast... let alone try and ride my sled. I know that on any given ride day 2-3k calories get eaten and im starving the next day from complete calorie depletion. Then again coming home with more then 1-2 gallons of gas is rare too.
Taco bell bacon breakfast crunch wrap times 2 for breakfast.... Or if im cooking at home. 3-4 eggs, sausage/bacon mixed in and some peppers and onions. little salsa and sour cream gets a guy ready to rage. Then lots of snacks for the day.
NO TP needed. Nice solid getup and keeps you rocking.
I've also gotten some of the pedialtye pouches you dump into your water, helps keep you way more hydrated and flavored water is a lot easier to pound for me then just straight water. 1L of water and a pile of electrolytes etc keeps you from cramping up and floundering.
I understand the KETO diet, but it is not for everyone. It is also NOT a good thing to try for just one day, especially if you have trained the body to work well in a "fed" state. Ketosis is something you train your body to do over a period time and to work well in a "fasted" state. Then it does work and work well, provided one eats properly, and at the right times, and with the correct amount and composition of calories. It is a LONG and complicated way to live and eat, and there are MANY opinions on the proper way to go about it. This just the tip of the icebergEat after you are done riding. Try it a few times..

Taco Hell is the worst thing you can eat anytime of day!
You only need WATER for a single day ride at ANY exertion level. Eat on the drive home. Take a protein bar on ride in case of emergency.
I mean there's no reason not to have a beer for breakfast too...I drink a beer on the ride home; that is of course if I'm not driving. Wait...I thought this thread was about breakfast? Should probably start another thread talking about what to have on the way home. haha
