    Clyde with a food question...

    Some background first... Due to work I couldn't ride for about 4 1/2 years. Before that I just road for fun and cheap local transportation (5-15mi per day average). Now I am getting back into riding but this time to loose weight (and for fun). When I first made the decision (just after this last Christmas) I was 351lbs and could barely ride 30 minutes on flat ground at any pace, now I am 340lbs. and I see a ton of muscle definition coming back to my cafes and starting to see the muscles starting to show threw the fat on my thighs. I am riding 6 miles first thing every morning then as long as its not raining I do another 2-8 miles through out the day making my rounds to places I want to go. Sometimes I go for another evening ride if I feel up to it.

    If you have stuck with this post this long I thank you; now my question...

    My main goal is to loose weight. In the morning before I make my 5mi ride (I'm making this longer) I have a piece of fruit and a large glass of water, ride, then a small oatmeal (no salt, butter.. ..raisins for flavor) or 2 eggs and more fruit and if I ride at night I only allow 1 to 1 1/2 servings of fruit before I sleep (I have a heck of a hunger about 30min after a ride). Am I doing right? My main goal is fat loss, is there something I could change? Or better yet, something that would help promote better fat burning during exercise?

    I am open to any suggestions.. ..thanks in advance

    Some good fats will keep you satisfied a bit longer. Try avocados or walnuts and see if it helps? Not right before the ride, but just daily, in your diet. Tuna fillets in those packets are helpful too. (for me)

    1) Eat a healthy diet. This may mean eating breakfast before your ride. You want to avoid triggering raging hunger.

    2) Walk, when I lost 50 pounds, walking was a big part of it. This could also be called cross training, but I found it hard to call walking to the store for some milk cross training

    3) Fruits and veggies. Eat lots.
