    New York Times:Exercise: Bicycling to Keep Off Extra Pounds
    By RONI CARYN RABIN
    Published: June 28, 2010

    Bicycling for exercise may help women control their weight during their 30s and 40s, a new study says.
    Related

    Brisk walking has the same effect for slim, overweight and obese women, researchers found, but slow walking does not.

    The findings are based on the second Harvard Nurses’ Health Study, which is tracking 116,608 female nurses who periodically fill out questionnaires about their health, weight, diet and behavior. The new analysis, published in the June 28 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, looked at weight change and behavior from 1989 (when the nurses were 25 to 42 years old) to 2005; to isolate the effects of exercise, the researchers controlled for other obesity risk factors.

    They found that women who increased physical activities like brisk walking and bicycling by 30 minutes a day during the 16-year period maintained their weight and even lost a few pounds, but those whose exercise was slow walking did not lose any weight.

    Women who decreased their bicycling time from more than 15 minutes a day to less than 15 minutes gained about four-and-a-half pounds on average.

    “This is not suggesting that if you bicycle for five minutes you will immediately go back to the weight you were when you were 18,” said Anne C. Lusk, a research fellow at the Harvard School of Public Health who was an author of the paper. “If that were true, bicycle sales would go through the roof.

    “But it’s highly suggestive that bicycling is highly beneficial in women.”

    I wonder if these ladies knew that if you actually start busting your ass by putting some intensity in your rides, you can actually start LOSING weight.

    But no, "Oh my god that'll make my thighs big and overly muscley!"

    No, that's the Dunkin Coolatas you have every day and the fat that makes your thighs big.But the fact of the matter is: Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!

    Are we really at the point where "slow walking" is considered exercise?

    They really shouldn't worry about that.

    the thing is, i'm sure that research could just as easily be applied to men. moderate amounts of moderate exercise means that you don't gain weight over time. "duh", as joshua said.

    however, the study happened to be based off of a sample population of nurses and clearly you don't have an appropriate control if you're using males and females. so, they probably picked just females to look at. it has nothing to do with women in particular, really. it's pretty common sense and easily applies to everyone.

    then tristan goes off on a tirade about his presumption that these ladies (or women in general) have a fear of bulking up and are drinking a shitty dunkin coolatta every day, which has absolutely nothing to do with the research or findings or any of the ladies around here, and was completely unnecessary. they weren't involved in a weight loss study. tristan, you're like the less charming version of gary. and he's not renowned for being a charmer. so me and captain jean luc picard are in agreement with respect to his comments.

    Seriously, I've met women who think if they lift any weight beyond those pastel colored 3 pound free weights (or do any exercise that doesn't involve some stupid fucking balance ball/yoga/pilates/*insert whatever fad workout of the decade) that they'll instantly become this:
