OK first off, I'm just starting back cycling, and I really havent done any physical activity since a soccer injury last summer (hence why I'm taking up cycling again). Before starting, about a month ago I was 6'1", ~155lbs and 10.2% body fat.
Now I'm trying to eat better, and get into shape but everywhere I turn around, I'm getting heckled about "dieting". It mostly comes from non-active friends and co-workers and happens when I pass off a Budweiser for a Mich Ultra, or Coca-Cola for water, or ordering stuff on healthy side of menus. I try to explain my situation but the barrage is constant and getting old.
Are there any other cyclists out there getting hounded for trying to shape up while already being "skinny"? I hate how America is so fixed on the "football player" style of physique, I joke back with my friends/coworkers that its really the "wrastler" (fake wrestling) physique
