I would like to lose 40 pounds in the next 6 months.
I'm a 240#, 51 year old who has started cycling again. I'm spending about 90 minutes cycling (about 20 miles) almost every day. I'll start depending on the bike 3 days a week as transportation to work. Soon I’ll have a 10 mile one-way commute.
I’m concerned that if I also reduce calories that I will feel it during the work day. I’m happy to cut out fat, sweets and junk food, but I don’t want to be low on energy or hungry. What should I eat? Should I avoid serious weight loss & dieting at this point?
