I've read all on this post--or at least tried to understand some of it!--and am still frustrated and confused. After seeing my weight loss go drop 15 pounds a month the first 3 months to 10 pounds over the last almost 2 months, I am ready to scream!
And, I've tried it all--more calories, less calories. More carbs, less carbs. More riding, less riding. Faster riding, slower riding. Interval riding, non-interval riding. Nothing seems to click. Oh, sometimes I'll get a drop of 2 pounds overnight or 3 pounds in a week--then back to no loss for weeks at a time.
I am beginning to wonder if long-distance (long to me!) cycling is compatible with weight loss since I have to eat more to power my rides. I'm doing between 100-130 miles a week now, and I have to begin to question if that is what has stalled my weight loss.
Please--other Clydes and Athenas! Tell me it ain't so! I love to ride and don't want to go back to 15 mile rides all the time. But I am really at the end of my chain here.
