    my gut

    I've been riding my bike pretty steady now for about a year and have felt the physical benefits. But i still have a bit of a gut that i am pretty sure cycling isn't going to get rid of. So how do you guys do it?

    well I don't think eating less will accomplish it. I'm thinking intense abdominal workouts should do the trick. Or lipo......your decision.

    What will abdominal workouts do except make the abdominals stronger -- and bigger?

    If you're talking about spot reduction, there's no such thing. You lose fat by eating less than you burn. You lose it in a genetically-predetermined pattern.

    How much do you ride now?

    I suspect you just need to ride MORE. Also add in: walking and weightlifting.

    I had a similar problem. After riding for a few years, I was feeling great, had lost some weight, but got to a point where that last couple of pounds/inches wouldn't go away. After a bit I figured I had come to a threshold that needed to be broken, so I bit the bullet and started doing ugly climbs two times a week. Flabbies melted away in a few weeks.

    Read "Eat to Live" by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. Try his eating plan for 6 weeks. Gut will melt away. I promise.
