the only time that I have been very effective in losing weight was when I did the Atkins diet. Not even the "WHOLE" Atkins, but an extremely reduced carb diet. I was never one to eat 20 pounds of bacon and cheese and think it was healthy just because there were no carbs...
I have only been into cycling for about a month...and started mainly too lose weight but I also really enjoy it...which should help. In talking with my DR he seems to think that I am intolerant to carbs. I have done other exercise programs and diet programs, and I am never very successful when it comes to inches or weight. in 3 months I worked out 6 days a week (3 days of lifting and 3 of cardio for 30 mins) and I lost 2 pounds and 2 inches. this was in conjunction with reduced calorie diet and eating 5 -6 small meals etc.
So I think that I want to go no/low carb again, but my concern is this...with very limited carb, how will that impact cycling? does anyone have experience with that? I thought the carbs were needed for activities like cycling. Thanks.
