Weight loss requires both diet and exercise. Since you lose weight by burning more calories each day than you consume, exercise will help you lose weight faster. You could also consider limiting your food intake. Raise your metabolism and burn calories by riding your bike and you might also gain muscle.
Have a glass of water before you start eating a meal. It becomes easy to overindulge when you are hungry because your brain doesn’t realize your belly is full until after you’ve already eaten.
When beginning to monitor your diet, try to stick to no more than 2,000 calories daily. Look at the ingredients in foods you purchase to make sure all essential nutrients are being consumed. If you see any deficiencies in nutrients, consider changing your diet or taking multivitamins.
