This isn’t a joke. I’m serious.
If the goal is to lose weight, and you’re an ordinary person, then quit exercising.
Exercising makes you hungry.
Running around in circles (or cycling, for you, Bruce) burns calories, which is great, and it definitely helps you stay healthier in about ninety million ways. Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
But most people get really hungry when they exercise. And although, as I mentioned, exercising does burn calories, it really doesn’t burn a whole lot of them. Most people want to eat a lot more than they just burned.
SO. If you have great willpower, then exercise. Sure.
But if you’re not so sure, this is what you do:
Do not exercise more than normal. If you normally exercise a lot, I’d say to take it easier for a bit.
Snack a lot (on low calorie stuff).
For people without really good willpower, I betcha you lose weight faster than if you exercised.
