Cycling Is As Good As A Weight Loss Plan

Save Time And Lose Weight

Studies hailing from Denmark have discovered that if people swapped the car or train for the bicycle to get to work they would lose as much or nearly as much weight as entering a weight loss plan.

Not only that, with today’s busy schedules, it can help you lose weight when you spend your time wasted on other forms of transport.

What’s not to love? Save time and lose weight. 

This is these are the promising results posted by Professor Bente Stallknecht, of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The study consisted of a group 130 overweight people between the ages of 25 and 40 who all had a BMI of 25-35 kg/m2, which officially makes them overweight.

The results of the study demonstrated that those participants of the study who cycled almost 8 miles per day commuting to work almost shed as much weight as those who enrolled on a weight loss fitness regime which consisted of exercising for 55 minutes per day over 5 days per week.

The difference between the outcome of both cycling to work and the weight loss fitness regime is a mere 0.7lbs.

Weight lost

Cycling to work:

  • 9.2lbs (4.2kg)

Fitness regime:

  • 9.9lbs (4.5kg)

Study Conclusions

These startling results are not only impressive for both forms of weight loss but highlight how effective cycling can be for weight loss on its own and also the potential time savings for that individual.

Combining exercise with a mode of transport will provide more time for people to spend on other leisure or family activities which can be the main reason for people not finding the time for exercise and fitness.

It will also have environmental benefits too, especially for air pollution levels in congested cities.
