i notice if i eat the right foods at the right times, meaning carb loading before a good workout, and staying away from tons of protein, i eat oatmeal or some kind of cereal for breakfast, a mid morning snack which is one piece/serving of any kind of fruit i have, then lunch, if i am going to eat junk food this is the time i do it as a snack in between lunch and dinner, and i keep it light for dinner and no desert. after that i try to do anything for 30 minutes a day on the off days, it can be anything from a light/low pace ride, down to just walking, most people here call them recovery rides, and without them you tend to buck up and just keep on adding muscle, which as we all know adds weight. don't worry so much about weight, worry about how your cloths are fitting and how your muscle are starting to show, you'll find you hit a balance point where you just can't seem to lose anymore weight, this is when your cloths start fitting better and your muscles start toning up. and if nothing else cut out simple sugars, and add complex sugars, cut out fruit juices(unless you make them yourself and don't add sugar to them) soda and sweets, if you want something sweet eat fruit.
