Don't give up, I put on over 5000 miles last year and didn't lose a pound either :( This year I adopted a structured training program in conjunction with using a heart rate monitor (HRM) and I've managed to drop 20 lbs. since April. I'm still on the see food diet and on about the same mileage pace as last year, so it has to be the training structure that's making the difference.

Can anyone tell me how to lose weight by cycling. I rode about 2000 miles this summer and haven't lost a pound! I'm so hungry all the time, and if I don't eat right while I'm riding, I bonk. I am 5'4'', almost (omigod) 50 and about 40 lbs. overweight. I really want to lose a lot of that 30-40 lbs. by next summer because we have big riding goals. and I know if I was lighter I'd be faster.
So I'd really like some suggestions, please!:confused:
