good morning people. Ever since i started cycling, I'm always hungry.:sick: I cycle for about 9kms in the morning and for about 10kms in the afternoon.

I guess this is a sign that the metabolism is hard at work. or i am wrong?:rolleyes:

I think I'm also seeing some positive results... i will post pictures soon... i have the before and after pictures... :D

Cycling is much easier than running. Try running a marathon! That deserves a medal.

52km is nothing.

Try doing 200km - I almost died.

The most I can do (without training) is the Argus Cycle Tour (109km)

I did my best time last year and I didn't even train ;)

When i am doing proper training i also am hungry all the time, which is why my meals are usually split up to around 5 throughout the day....i eat something every +-3 hours or so...

I know the feeling.... everybody else seems to be off food when finished gymming..... me, i can eat a horse. What is worse is there is a very nice steakhouse next to the gym.

I try to hold out for at least an hour after training but it's hard cause i'm hungry...:eek:

Try taking in fluids while cycling then you won't feel hungry afterwards.

Eat allot of Carbs and keep your body full of fluids. You just kick started your Metabolism and it will stabilise after a while.

At the risk of seeming mind numbingly boring, cycling is incredibly efficient and uses some of the largest muscles in your body and consequently burns lots of energy. You should therefore always carry an energy bar or something with you as hitting glycogen depletion is extremely unpleasant on a bike.

Just legs actually. Running requires you to drag your entire body weight with each step. Running > cycling.

Try increasing protein intake. It works for me. More protein means I'm less hungry. - I'm not talking about a kilo of steak, just a protein bar or shake extra in the morning or after you ride.

The before pic is slightly more important than the after pic I reckon.

Sort of true. It mostly works out the legs, but also has an effect on the back, stomach and triceps...

I still need a lot of training for that. And a proper road bicycle. :D
