RIDING A LOT CAN MAKE YOU FIT, BUT YOU NEED A SPECIFIC STRATEGY IF YOU WANT TO ACTUALLY LOSE FAT.
Struggling with your weight loss goals? You are not alone. The blunt truth is that though daily exercise like cycling will improve your cardiovascular health, lift your mood, and boost your fitness, you can easily pedal an hour a day and not lose a pound. Much to your dismay, you might even gain a few. If you’re left wondering, Why can’t I lose weight, we’ve got some answers for you.
“Just adding exercise does not equal automatic weight loss,” explains Leslie Bonci, R.D., sports nutritionist at Pittsburgh-based Active Eating Advice and co-author of Bike Your Butt Off. “You need to be sure you’re not unconsciously eating more, not overcompensating with treats and sweets, and that you’re exercising in a way that encourages fat loss and builds lean muscle tissue.”
Don’t get discouraged (or hang up your wheels!). It’s not as complicated as it sounds. With the right adjustments to your riding (and fueling) routine, you can pedal off unwanted weight. Here’s what you need to know.
