      +Fish Trout how about we just go for no food. A liquid diet. Water only. Not even gruel. Yep, that should help the weight melt off.😁

      No carbs after 7, one meal a day make it a salad, workout before breakfast, push ups and crunches before bedtime.

      If your starting out and ha e weight loss in mind you ha e to account for metabolic adjustment, your body is going to go crazy and make you want to eat and eat, in this "phase" you have to eat a specific type of food and don't over eat. Focus on lesser amount of good fats IE avocado, nuts, broths, and a larger amount of fruit and veg.
      As your metabolism improves eat a balanced diet of both and lean towards your focus IE strength or endurance. At this point you want to match or be as close to caloric output/input.
      This is not universal, everyone's metabolism is different so balance means to balance it to your metabolic "norm".
      I have a fast metabolism but I maintain 80kg average. A kg either side, if I do a lot if activity it drops and then I rest till its back up to 81 ish and then I go hard till I lose that "conditioning" then rest again etc.

      +Chris Eckersen thank you for your in depth reply. I don't think weight is a matter of simple mathematics because our builds vary and our bodies have their preferred set weight irrespective of the ways we try to manipulate it. I always advocate doing the thing which is least harmful to our bodies but I do get that elite sports may make opposing demands. All the best to you.

    While calorie totals are important, it's crucial to keep a track of your macronutrients. Carbs can trigger insulin spikes, which in turns stores and retains belly fat. Even if your'e equaling output, if you're eating a lot of carbs, body fat won't shed.

    It's the normal advice on food, eat everything that's often taste disgusting and only small potions that leaves you hungry and don't enjoy the pleasures of life like tasty fat food. But what's the point of living then if you can't have a pint or two and only feel miserable?

    I commute 3-4 days/75-100 miles per week. I know when I'm losing weight, when I start to think about really large meals, while I'm riding. I don't shy away from from fat. Nor do I consume just fat. A can(tin) of Spam is great for an after ride breakfast. Open. Slice. Heat. And, eat. 4 minutes, tops. Olives, nuts and some(a little) chocolate. And a lot of water. Electrolytes when it's really hot.

  • Peter H

    Really good video - nothing to critique. My tip is to spread meals out by eating breakfast late or do small exercise while reading or watching tv to keep the calorie clock burning. Bars and gels are too much for rides which aren't long enough. Banana and a fruit drink are enough for a couple of hours of mountain biking. Water has no calories remember.

    For those who struggle to loose fat with the outdated "calories in, calories out" paradigm: Check out the videos on intermittent fasting by Dr. Jason Fung here on TheXvid. Our bodies didn't evolve in an environment where eating highly processed foods every 2 hours was a thing. This keeps the insulin level high, which doesn't let us access the energy stored as fat in our bodies. That's why one can loose fat while eating the same amount of calories, as long as food intake is done in a smallish time window per day. The best part is: I don't get hungry (and hangry) every few hours and have to spend less time on preparing / getting food and have a steady amount of energy throughout the day.

    I train cyclist professional cyclist
    Doing the math been at work for you !
    There’s a simpler way to do this .
    First stop all alcohol consumption because you have a goal set in front of you!
    Next don’t eat until your stomach is crying for food .
    Eat a healthy diet .
    If you’re cycling for one hour and you’ve been doing it for months and you’re holding at X amount of weight .
    But your body is used to being on that bike for one hour .
    You’ve got to shock your body and increase that ride to an hour and 25 minutes!
    Next biggest thing is working on your air intake.
    You’re going to be riding up hills and you’re going to be in hills and exhaling as hard as you can for 30 seconds at a time this will increase your VO to Max !
    Next four times a week you’re going to do three sprints for one minute !
    All out sprints , this will increase your strength and your VO to Max at the end of your sprint you going to do heavy breathing and keep going .
    Most people at the top of the hill will slow down and rest.
    You’re not going to rest you’re going to push it harder and increase your speed at the top of the hill this is how you drop people. !
    If you use just the simple techniques your increase your speed of your cycling and drop weight. !
    Good luck !

    This all time concept of muscle is heavier than fat is rubbish. It's that old saying a ton of feathers and a ton of sand which is heavier? What should be said is that as you lose hopefully fat that you are creating muscle mass instead so your weight may still be the same. Great dietary info though just that one comment I didn't like.

    You increase your insulin levels when you cycle or eat. Best to have a window of max 6 hours for eating and exercise to achieve weight loss.

    Stop cycling and start walking - hill walking especially.
    Walking is proper load bearing exercise and you also get to enjoy nature a lot more!
    I'm almost 46 and thin - I walk and don't cycle - I also drive and make no apologies!
    Cycling disrupts the flow of traffic including buses and is a danger to pedestrians.
    When walking, you don't need all that lycra either - it looks stupid on grown men!

    Love this video.
    Ordered a Crescent Deca. I'm at 196 cm 135 kg at the moment. the goal is to gradually lose weight to reach the 100 kg mark or as you said in the video I may not reach that mark because well muscle weighs more than fat :) heck if I reach 110 kg I'd be very happy. I've experienced in recent years that I hit a wall once I reach around 123 kg mark. from there down to 110 kg seems to be impossible. Hopefully, some tough intervals training will help with that. Thanks for the video and cheers from Sweden!

    Weight loss is math. Calories are calories, no matter if you get them from twinkies or kale. So many trendy diets are worthless and unsustainable (and I live in the world's capital of diet woo, Los Angeles). There are no short cuts.

    It's not really about the calories though, it's about the hormones. Calories control the hormones but are only 1 contributor.
    I can gain a ton of weight on Steroids, for instance, while not changing calories. That's just a hormonal imbalance.

  • Raw Vegan Performance

    For me there are just two reasons, after 15 years of Training 2 - 4 hours / day multiple kinds of Sports: Training to less (I mean to short - not intense!) or eating to much. While you Train the Body makes what he Needs out of what you ate, no matter what. Mind over Body. But if there is not enugh time for your Body to transform during the Training, nothing happens, or, if the Digestion is to full, and to much Energy is needed to Digest, theres no energy left for transforming the Body. I know a helathy eating can help - thats why i call me raw vegan Performance - but after all, it just raises your consciousness, and what you eat, doesnt matter any more.

    There's an argument too for simply working on your power. A rider putting out more power over a given time period will burn more calories than a rider putting out less power. If as your ftp improves you don't consume more calories then you should get to the point where calories in are less than calories out.

  • Glenn
    Glenn 5 days ago

    one tip I use - sure I like ice cream but for me - a greek-style plain or raspberry yogurt tastes just as good so I swap the good one for the not so good other - also - there is this crazy thing that when you are riding yourself into "form" your body STOPS craving cookies and starts looking for healthy alts to feed the heightened demand - if all you want is treats during the season then you are NOT doing enough to get into form and might consider upping the daily / weekly rides to get there - happens for me all the time - if I am looking for cookies at the checkout I KNOW I am not in form and workout harder !!! - lastly - people just do not realize that having that one small chocolate bar or donut a day is killing their calorie count - in many cases that single hit is all it takes to go from deficit to overspending - sure one day is no biggie but if you do it 3-5 times a week its 3-5X hit that adds up quickly so after one month do the math - fattie you eat fattie you get - the other thing is that if you do get in form your fat will turn to muscle so don't expect the scales to dive - weight measurement is for losers - so are diets

  • Glenn
    Glenn 5 days ago

    good well-balanced discussion - pretty much hit everything I would say if I gave the same chat - spot-on comments throughout - one thing I would say is this - if you have ridden your bike enough you will get to a stage where you are "in form" - this occurs when you naturally find yourself attacking even the slightest incline instead of going backwards - your legs are spinning on auto-pilot at high cadence and it feels effortless - you do not feel winded even with big climbs - in short it is a nirvana-state the makes you feel like the k's just slip by unnoticed - it takes a LOT of effort to get "in form" but you WILL know it when you arrive - also - when you are not in form you know it - point being - throw out your weight scales since this whole video shows just how false an indicator it is of form - focus instead on getting in form and you will find when you are there suddenly your body is "healthy" for you - what your weight is at that moment is inconsequential - most riders will take several months of concerted effort to get themselves in form - so you need to be patient and put in consistent rides - in short - what you weigh means nothing - whether or not you are in form means everything to indicate your health level and in the end that is what riding is about - a healthy recreation for most

    its really important here to bring up the menstrual cycle. Through the cycle, the weight fluctuates very significantly. Hereby, women should only weight and compare the weights at one specific point in the cycle!!! A few kilos more before your period starts is a totally normal thing one has to accept and consider #womenarenotsmallman #trainlikeawomen

    I think losing weight cycling is a dumb idea. There are other much more aerobically efficient activities, cross country skiing, roller skiing, martial arts (thai, karate, kwondo etc.), basketball, whatever. If your knees are gone or something I can understand it but otherwise I wouldn't use cycling. Maybe If I lived near a mountain where I could climb 2000 meters or something.

  • Neckelism
    Neckelism 5 days ago

    I'd say my first tip is buy a calory counting watch to get a relative feeling of how many calories you burn. Even if the absolute count is not dead-on, you will see that a bit more moving (I am working in an office), produces impressive differences. Otherwise, I lost 21kg by stopping eating the "big label" sweets and stuff like potato chips and salted nuts. Replaced the sweets by dark chocolate and fructose based cookies. In the evening, an apple, orange or avocado, and if I fancy something salty, I have small dried french sausages that go well together with cherry tomatoes. Then, what I have given up years ago is carbon rich food (spaghetti and the like) after a ride. I am eating before a ride and cookies/water during the ride. After the ride re-hydration, and light food such as a mozzarella salad, and magnesium/vitamin b to avoid cramps. Also, funny enough, and if I can trust my calory counting watch, a walk around the hilly parts where i live in the evening after work for 1h or so burns 900kcal whereas 45min on a home trainer only burns ca 350kcal. I'm 49 by the way, and the bad news is it doesn't get easier with age ;-).

    It's not only about how many calories you eat vs burn, but WHEN you eat. Our circadian rhythm allows us to produce digestive enzymes for a maximum of 12hrs per day. If you limit your "feeding time" to less than 12hrs, ideally about 8hrs (eg, 10am - 6pm) and extend your non-eating time to about 16hrs you will metabolize calories much quicker. If you fast, you will be purely burning fat after about 24hrs. I recently did a 72hr water fast and dropped 20lbs and now I intermittent fast (8 on, 16 off) every day and feel amazing. Your body gets used to the new eating schedule quickly and I rarely feel hungry. Late night snacking is the worst for weight gain.

    The easy solution is for him to bike until he is so exausted he sleeps the rest of the day. That is the only way for me.

      In its most simplest form; weight loss is about creating a calorie deficit, if you're consistent with that then you'll lose weight. Have a calorie excess then you'll put it on

    I'm 5'11"(180.3cm) and 155 lbs(70.3kg) and havent lost weight in over 2 years. Stuck at that number and I just assume it's my healthy weight. Not too sure if I should try to lose weight of not. Anyone else with the same issue?

      Not sure if you want to lose weight? The question should be do you feel like you need/want to? I'm the same height and I have a good 19kg on you, if I was your weight I'd want to put some on
