I started doing a diet in July. I have actually stuck with it and have lost 25 lbs. I’ve got another 25 to go & I’m not a diet person either. It’s slow sometimes but I’ve made it my routine and it’s really not hard anymore.
Riding more just never really helped me lose weight because I’d just eat more than I burned. Lots of “you deserve it” flavored ice cream and pulled pork, etc.

Jodycb what diet are you on? Amazing results for you for 25 lbs!!!
I’m doing the South Beach diet. Basically focused on foods with a low glycemic index. Lots of veggies less bread, pasta and rice.
I think like anything, consistency is the challenge.
I am kind of wondering how to adapt my diet as I start doing longer rides. I wonder if I’ll be more likely to bonk or if I’ll be ok as long as I eat nuts or something far enough in advance of when my body’s going to be looking for calories.
