Weight Loss Through Cycling

My first intention of getting back into cycling was to help me lose weight. With eight months into the year gone I haven’t seen the results I would like to have seen. Basically, I’m stagnant. I’m not gaining any weight but I’m not losing anything either. I need a better approach to using cycling as a means to shed the pounds. Just going out and riding haphazardly is not going to cut it anymore. I’m going to need a structured plan or at least move in that direction. Don’t get me wrong, I have gotten better, ridden longer rides and feel better about it. Those are good things, but more is needed.

A trip to the book store yielded some possible books for me to look at. Even further searching on Amazon produced one that is on the Kindle format so I purchased, Ride Your Way Lean: The Ultimate Plan to Burn Fat and Getting Fit on a Bike by Selene Yeager. I’m in the process of reading it now. I’m hoping it can jump-start things for me and get me going in the right direction. Only time will tell. Let’s hope time brings good news.

Happy Cycling!

  1. Ray, that’s a good book. I’m currently following the Big Weight Loss interval plan. In addition to following the interval plan I have really had to crack down on my eating habits and getting a handle on how many calories I’m consuming. Cycling+eating right = recipe for success (in my opinion)

    • Hey Bryan,

      Today, I’m starting a food diary and I’m already shocked as to how much sodium schlotsky’s puts in a sandwich! :/ Now I’m eyeing everything I have been eating for lunch. Some sort of sctructure is really what i’m looking for and see if I can implement as much as I can. Hope to see some results in the coming months.
