Tour of Diet - Cycling for Your Health


The last seven years, or so, at the Tour de France has shown a success story that is very uncommon. Winning seven Tour de France championships is a feat that will be extremely hard to duplicate. Lance Armstrong knew it could be done, even overcoming a life threatening bout with cancer.

While admiring the great courage of one man, we can learn from his experience. Many of us struggle to maintain our weight and keep our diets in top form. We cheat with snacks, fast food, and overindulgence. And it shows in the mirror.

Cycling is just one form of exercise that we have to choose from. The benefits are enormous:

  • Anyone can cycle. Regardless of ability, we could all take a stroll around the neighborhood.
  • Bikes for everyone. A bike can be purchased by even those without legs. There are no limits to what bike manufacturers have developed. You may have seen some of the new styles.
  • Family activity. Kids love to bike, and they love to bike in packs. Join the pack.
  • Cycling is transportation. It is possible to live without a car. Bike to the market, school, and work. It's not as far as you think.
  • A way to meet friends. There are probably cycling clubs in your area or certain rides to partake in. Check a local bike shop for the ongoings.
  • Affordability. Bikes range in price from one hundred to thousands of dollars. Used bikes are great alternatives as well.
  • Addiction. Not a bad habit to get addicted to. You'll get exercise, fresh air, and a chance to explore.

Cycling is a great example of a way to get out of the house and get fit. There are many other options though. It just takes initiative to get going. Local health clubs, YMCAs, and communities sponsor recreational leagues throughout the year. They are a great way to help your diet and get some exercise. The camaraderie in itself is uplifting to the soul.

Finding ways to get out and about is the key to mental and physical health. Many of us spend much of our day sitting. We look at computer screens for hours at a time. It really cannot be that great for our health. Obesity, especially childhood obesity, is on the rise all over the western world and the cure lies in the hands of each one of us.

Take a lesson from those that are admired. What do they do that makes their achievements seem superhuman? If you met Lance Armstrong, there would be no superpowers to discover, but a soul that is connected to a higher meaning of life. That soul connects to the ultimate potential that each of us has the ability to tap into.
