Enough, that's why I changed my diet to improve my health. The doctors below are advocating diet primarily to improve your health with significant results. Plenty of people still have heart problems while being cyclists.g-boaf wrote:What's your health worth to you?

I totally agree. And to do that diet is more important than exercise from what I've seen of the evidence so far. Also by doing long distances you expose yourself to greater risk (just by exposure time) to having an accident that may ruin your health or ability to stay healthy through exercise. It's more expensive too as it cost more in food, bike parts and bikes. A 400Km per week commitment is hard to keep doing over a 10 year period.g-boaf wrote:There is a point where you just need to try to make changes and look after yourself.
Good for you that you are doing something for your health. But for most people it's cheaper and easier just to change their diet and exercise moderately.
