24 Thoughts to “Cycling Tips to Drop 5+ Pounds of Body-Fat

  1. If you have been trying to burn calories fast, you should search google for Atomic Fat Loss. That can help you get the body you deserve.

  2. This is interesting. After Ramadan (muslim fasting) I still had fasts to make up. So I would fast for 4 days and then on my ride day, 2 x weetabix’s with a banana and I was a lot more powerful and fast and had better thinking etc. on my bike.

  3. He may not be grossly overweight. You know nothing of his somotype. I could never be 70kg (I haven’t weighed that since I was 13). I’m 5′ 7 and weigh 195. I coulf probably get to 185 with a very strict diet. I still hit sub 24mins on a 10m time trial after only three months of training.

  4. Yes, thanks– i need to drop 10-15 lbs, i like too many carbs even though they are good carbs still fattening– i can ride at a decent pace on level ground but i cry on long hills– i went riding with a few more serious and yes younger friends and they killed me on hills– i need to practice on hills more

  5. I am at the point now where I can’t exercise unless I am on a completely empty stomach, it just becomes habit to go without.

  6. Will be getting my 2012 CAAD-10 SRAM in about a week, upgrading the wheels to Mavic R- SYSTEM so a big weight savings there- it will be my middle of the road bike vs my System Six


  7. @Roadracerash lol i would be dead if i was 70kg. Its not essesntial to be super light to ride anyway. Their is always an optimum power to weight ratio for each individual.

  8. I can think of a good reason to drop down from 92kg: you’re grossly overweight. Especially for a road cyclist. A better target would be 70kg.

  9. Too long; didn’t listen. I’m just gonna stick with Brad Wiggins’s advice: “Stop eatin’.”

  10. Before you hit the road have a good breakfast. Eggs or cereal too much food will result in you getting tired fast. Eggs are the most GREAT source of protein and you will be full longer. So if you are ridding for 4 hour day, durring your ride load up on some hammer gel or Cito max, electroics, take a break than eat like a bananna, or bean salad. hit the road and keep your water handy….People think thay have to eat the huge breakfast and not eat for the rest of the day not good. Also stretch

  11. I don’t think diet is going to make a huge difference for this dude. His smoking though. That is problem with cycling. Take a deep breath guy!

  12. from a weight training pov you always want… high protein/high fat/mod carb. but to lose body fat you need to alternate the fats and carbs on training/rest days.

    What you are saying about training cv on an empty stomach is not exactly correct.
    very light cv while fasted is good for you and will trigger fat burn and raise growth hormone levels but HIT or any other very heavy form of cv while fasted over stresses the body raising cortisol levels and reducing growth hormone/ test.

  13. Im 6ft1 and 200lbs weight train 3 x a week and only just bought my first road bike and im smashing pb’s every ride and increasing my mileage.

    I was thinking about dropping from 92kg down to 85kg but I can’t see any reason to.

    I rode with a mate who only weights 81kg and is a good rider(been riding yrs) and I was quicker every where much to his dislike.

  14. if a person who does cycling regularly stops after a year will he put on weight in near the thigh region??

  15. Hello, have you seen this program called the Fat Blast Furnace? (do a google search). My dad says it helps people get thinner.

  16. Yo, have you tried the Fat Blast Lifestyle? (check google). My father insists it helps people get thinner.

  17. Back in the 70’s, when I was a Competitive Cyclist, I had no fat to lose. I had to eat all the time, because if I didn’t I would lose weight. And that weight was muscle. I could not afford that. I often worked out 8 hours a day, seven days a week, all year. Off season, I would swim, run, hike, circuit train, anything that pushed my heart rate way up. Most people don’t know how hard being a top level racer is. The recovery factor required to be competitive makes you one of the fittest guys alive!
