  1. I've recently started doing a lot more exercise, I'm struggling to keep weight, and my trousers, on!

  2. I lost 11 lb in three weeks just by switching from coca cola to water.

  3. wieght loss?The bike shreds fat.Fat cyclist WTF?

  4. Hi GCN I do road cycling with are you tips on my diet

  5. great trying to tense dan lol

  6. Guys, Muscle does not weight more than fat. A pound is a pound. I think what you mean is that muscle is denser than fat, taking up less volume.

  7. Great channel guys, inspired me to get back out on my bike, thanks!

  8. GCN. I am new to cycling and have been watching your videos for a few weeks now. Thank you for all of the information you provide. I have learned a lot over these few weeks from them. What beautiful scenery you guys get to ride in. I assume that's the English countryside. I am just stuck here in New Jersey dodging cars. Thank's again and I will keep watching.

  9. 4:50 watch those elbows! that is a dangerous way to do push-ups

  10. I lost 30kg whith cycling, sadly I only found your video afterwards. It could have been a great help to me, you give some very useful tips. Right now I'm also rowing a lot, but I still love cycling so whenever I have the time I love to go out with my bike πŸ™‚

  11. matts running made me lagh.

  12. I just went for a jog/walk, jogged the most ever in my life, hurt my legs like hell but I really enjoyed it, so hopefully when I buy a bike, I should be good for starting πŸ™‚

  13. I just started with calorie-counting and what confuses me a bit is the following: To loose weight, you take in less calories than you use, for example 1500/day. And as far as I know, you have to maintain a certain amount(baseal metabolism). So what exactly is the benefit from excercising, if you replenish the burned calories again ? I could just eat the minimum and do nothing at all ? ( apart from better cylcing performance πŸ™‚ )

  14. Stopped cycling 8 years ago when I was at my best, then started some mild weightlifting which added 10 kg to my upper body. Then I got lazy and fat. now wheighing in at 118kg whereas I was at 73kg when I stopped cycling as a junior. I've set a goal to get under 100kg this year and get to 85 kg eventually so I can be better than I was back then. it's a long plan that might take a few years but your videos are all great inspiration. Keep it up πŸ™‚

  15. Would it be wise to ride with ankle weights on? Would doing that actually help me gain muscle safely or would I just end up hurting myself?

  16. It's a bit ironic that Dan is the one suggesting cutting down alcohol…

  17. As expert, I think Fenoboci Diet Plan is great way to lost a ton of weight. Why don't you give it a chance? perhaps it is going to work for you too.

  18. Great appetite suppressant, no jitters. Am 62, was ill and hadn't been able to walk my five miles at least four Times per week. Gained over 17 pounds in a year. Started this Weight Loss Idealiss pills nearly two months ago. Plus started walking again. Great results. Try it, you'll like the results.

  19. 01:38 Matt you're drinking San Miguel beer? Haha!

  20. Dear GCN,
    I just wanted to let you know that you changed my life. Your great videos encouraged me to buy a road bike last spring and gradually increase my fitness. My wife has recently got a road bike and started cycling as well (she has just finished a turbo-trainer workout with one of your videos). As an additional motivation to improve our fitness and lose weight we booked holidays in Mallorca and will be taking our bikes with us. As a result I started cycling more, eating healthier and today my scale has shown me 17kg less than what it showed on the 1st of January! Even though I am still far away from my target weight, I feel great already and am looking forward to climbing Coll dels Reis.
    Thank you GCN!

  30. If I make it to pro cycling, you guys are worthy of my gratitude.

  31. (>β€Ώβ— )✌ So many tips to follow – can you cycle to find true Zen?
    Β "With our eyes on the horizon, we do not see what lies at our feet"

  32. Does "increase intensity" also apply to drinking alcohol???

  33. I saw this combo on CNN a while ago and still using the combo. I've been using the products for about 6 wks (Garcinia Cambogia came first, had to wait for an extra day). Honestly, this is unbelievable, all I have to say is WOW. I to order this is there https://plus.google.com/105336423714741356802/posts/Gvzd3k4heVE

  34. Thank you for this great and informative video. One program I might add to this is to try Body For Life by Bill Phillips on the off season.

  35. And the best way for cyclists to lose weight is…. *drum roll* … Ride your bike more. :3

  36. gcn know cherry coke is where its at!

  37. Muscle does not weigh more than fat, 1g of one is the same as 1g of the other – fat takes up more volume

  38. Diet Plan called Fenoboci Diet Plan kept showing up here on different videos and I thought they were scams. However after my work buddy follow it, and finally lost a lot of weight with it without starving herself. I'm persuaded. You should not take my own word for it, search for Fenoboci Diet Plan on google.
