It’s not about the bike


I was always a chubby kid……adult too for that matter.  I’ve recently gone back to a (basically) grain free way of eating.  I’d done it once before with pretty remarkable results.  I’ve tempered my approach a bit this time ’round with the expectation that I will be able to make the change stick.  Permanently.

The point of this missive is not to push one “diet” or another.   The indisputable fact is that if you eat real food, positive things will happen.  I’ve been able to lose a pretty remarkable amount of weight with little or no exercise.

The point of this?   On a weekly basis I talk to folks that want to buy a bike to lose weight. While I will never be the one to begrudge someone a bike ride, it’s not going to do much for your waistline.

Ride a bike.  Please.  Do so often.  Do it for your health.  Do it for fun.  It’s one of the few things we did as children that is still acceptable to do as adults.

Wanna lose weight?  I can tell you from experience that it all starts with what’s going into the end of your feeding tube.

For me it all started with Mark Sisson and “The Primal Blueprint”.  If you’re interested.
