    I think e-bikes can be a great tool for weight loss. They make cycling more accessible to a lot of people who might find traditional bikes a bit daunting.

    Hey there! It's great to see you're making progress on your weight loss journey. It's interesting that you're considering using an e-bike as part of your plan. While an e-bike can be a helpful tool, it's important to remember that sustainable weight loss involves a combination of factors. These include exercise, diet, and overall lifestyle choices. There are various approaches people take to enhance their weight loss efforts. Some individuals may choose to explore options such as incorporating the best fat burning steroid into their regimen. It's essential to prioritize your health and consult with a healthcare professional who can provide guidance on the safe and responsible use of such substances. Remember, everyone's journey is unique, and finding what works best for you is key.

    Using an e-bike can be an effective tool for weight loss, for sure. But it should be combined with a healthy diet. Btw, the guys from Bethlehem PA Weight Loss Doctors may help with it. Regular exercise is needed too. Remember that weight loss is about making sustainable lifestyle changes. These include healthy eating habits and regular physical activity. An e-bike can be a great way to make exercise more enjoyable and help you reach your weight loss goals. Yet, it should not be relied upon solely.

    I'm not going to argue with calorie counters.
    Do your own research.
    Ketogenic diet.
    Time Restricted Eating.
    I'll enjoy my Bacon Eggs and Avocado breakfast at noon.

    Yup, I agree about limiting what's going in the pie hole. Not so much what, but for how many hours pie hole is open for eating per day. When I can stick to only eatin for 8 hrs per day, I lose weight. Over holidays I started stretching it to 10 and 12 hrs eating, (not excessive, just stretched out), and started putting a few pounds back on. BOO hiss... back on 8 only, and heading back down! 260 a yr ago, 188 today. I ride as often as possible, and pedal not so much

    Biking won't hurt. But if you look at the average calories burned, even modest physical activity is remarkably small. Biking for an hour... ~300 calories ... running for an hour ~600 calories. E-biking would likely be even less than 300/hr - unless you have assist at 'zero' and are actually working against the extra weight of the bike.

    Trying to lose weight or at least not gain more? Find out how many calories are burned by an hour walking, swimming or using the elliptical.


    A typical fast food burger/fries/soft drink is 1300-1500 calories... or 5 hours of biking / 2-1/2 hours of running (@ 5mph is essentially a half marathon!) . ...after which you'll probably be "starving" and want to eat something else!

    So moral of the story is that you will never 'out exercise' a bad diet. For true and lasting weight loss you have to cut down on the carbs going into the 'ol pie hole.

    Water is more alive than you think.
    Emoto’s water crystal photographs prove thoughts, sound and intention impact the living consciousness in water.

    My local pathologist cut open a bunch of beer drinkers over the years. Squeaky clean arteries is what he found. The hops does the trick.

    Water has never been alive but I'm going to make an exception for it LOL

    Seeing as beer is barley, hops and yeast which were all alive at one time - I'm good

    I just came up with the worlds cheapest bike mod for mid drives.

    I have a couple donor bikes with mag wheels, and a Nuvinci 171b CVT hub that use the dreaded threaded on freewheel format. With a Bafang mid drive do I even need a freewheel at all? There is a 1 way clutch in the cranks and another at the motor. Maybe it's time to just weld one of those useless suckers solid? One hidden

    Are you spending all your $ on new bike parts too? I'm finding having no money left to buy food is keeping me from putting much in my neck hole

    I'm doing that too. It has other benefits. Less time digesting means more time cleaning and healing.
    You should try and only eat things that were alive at one time (not just meat, plants too). Chemicals and GMO stuff are "incoherent" to the body. Grass fed beef is good too. Cows don't eat corn on their own. It makes them fat for the slaughter. Then we eat that meat and guess what happens to us? For cheese I use sheep or goat products to avoid the corn question.

    I've been doing the only eat for 8hr out of 24, and It's kinda crazy how much weight I have lost in the last couple months. about 40# since june. It really ends up being 2 meals a day instead of 3, but the extra time off for your liver -16 hr- makes ya go into a fat rejecting state- so they say. Anyway, that and super distraction- (more like Obsession) having a new Eclipse, and the couple months deciding, waiting and prepping myself for it has done a lot towards getting off the couch and back into fuller life as well.

    Cutting off the bad foods and consuming the whole good stuff has also been part of my newish routine, AS well as spending ALL my money on bicycle upgrades instead of bad food on the lazy boy in front of the TV!

    Just installed my new MT5's, motorcycle flavored, right front stopper - no switches.... damn these things let ya go real slow real quick. Am I hearing the spokes growling a bit when I get on it hard?

    Ketogenic diet here. When I retired I blew up to 260#, down to 205# now. Ride to lunch and skip the bread, sugar, and taters. Meat, cheese, eggs, and veggies. Nuts for snacks. I go off of it every now and then but generally that's what I eat. Just about impossible to become diabetic doing this.

    I would go with the distraction theory. I for sure eat a lot more sitting on the couch. I hardly ever eat while riding my bike. No sugar on the bike either because biking I only carry water. I don't think that works for everyone. I see a lot of bikes at the brew pub near my house.
