    Easy weight loss

    I watch what I eat. It is working.
    I ride my bike daily. It is working.
    I drink loads of water and no soda. It is working

    But the best thing I have done is add a heart rate monitor. Before i focused on miles. Now i focus on working my heart, then recovering. To get my rate in the target zone requires some serious effort, but not necessarily tons of miles. My fitness and cycling ability is growing faster than ever before. If you are at a plateau, as I was when I purchased my HRM, give it a shot.

    I hate to leave, but im nearing the end of my Clyde days, at least in terms of weight.

    Can you give more info... I have lost 20 lb and have hit the big plateau. I'm riding 3 days a week one being long the other 2 being 25 miles. I just can't seem to drop. I have a watch style HRM and was thinking about giving that a try. What are you looking for?

    That article is pretty good. I can't give you more info than that Insanity. What I can tell you is that watching your heart rate stay in the right zone gives the positive reinforcement that slowly shrinking size cant. Every time you look at the HRM you know you are doing to right thing. From there, its only a matter of time before you start to realize results.
