malnourishment on the long tour
Do any of the long distance touring cyclists out there suffer from the effects of malnourishment on your trips? Last year I did a 2,500 mile, four month tour of SE Asia and found travelling through rural Vietnam and Laos hard work due to a lack of nutritous food, noodle soup and bananas being the only thing available in some places. Apart from the loss of what little fat I had to start with the other effects were a deterioration of my eyesight and a weak bladder, both conditions got better a few weeks after getting home and eating some good food.
I would be interested in hearing of other people's experiences and how they deal with the problem on very long trips.
