Pedal Off the Pounds: 8 Reasons Cycling is a Great Way to Lose Weight
Losing weight is a challenge. It requires discipline, hard work, and major changes in your lifestyle. So, what if you could make losing weight a bit easier? I’m not talking about a magic pill or anything that comes without effort, but just the simple comfort of exercising in a way you already know how.
It’s safe to say that most people learn to ride a bicycle when they are young. And obtaining a bicycle is not difficult. So why not use those 2 wheels to get out there and shed some pounds. Cycling can burn as much as you want it to. You can start slow, and push yourself harder as time goes on.
To further discuss the ways that cycling can help you lose weight, I chatted with Deborah Orlick Levy, M.S., R.D., Carrington Farms Health and Nutrition Consultant and Maik Wiedenbach, Professor and Personal Trainer. Both are avid cyclists who love the sport, and appreciate the ways it keeps them fit and healthy.
