Make it Happen Mondays – 7 Minute Diet


I’ve dedicated all Monday posts in January to “Cycling for Optimal Weight“.  There are a lot of riders out there who are “cycling for weight loss” or using the bike as their way of getting themselves in the shape they dream to be in…..and I honestly can’t think of a better way to get there.  If you haven’t already downloaded our Loving the Bike Cycling for Optimal Weight min-e-book, I encourage you to go check it out. It’s a basic, down to earth plan for you to achieve your goals….and best of all, it will work.

I really don’t like the word “Diet”.  To me, a diet means something you do for a while but then revert back to exactly what you were doing before (or worse).  Nutrition and eating right is a lifestyle…it’s something that should come as second nature and not feel like torture.  Well, I came across a great program that shows you how to incorporate just a few simple “metabolism switches” that will help kick your body into a better fat burning machine.  Even though it’s called The 7 Minute Diet, it is really more lifestyle than diet.  It allows you to continue on your regular eating plan, but tells you how to make a few tweaks to your routine that will do your body good.

Of course, you’ll need to also get out there and crank the pedals as well…but I can guarantee you that if you follow the wisdom of The 7 Minute Diet and put on the miles on your bike, you will see fantastic results.

I was such a believer of what these guys were doing that I just had to get involved.  They have brought me on as a fitness consultant and helping their 7 Minute Diet members with the fitness side of things.  If you’ve ever wondered what you actually get by paying $49 to one of those website that promises you all that you’re looking for…..well, on this one I can tell you that you’ll get what you pay for.

If I’ve piqued your interest, Click Here! to watch a video that further explains what the 7 Minute Diet Switches can do for you.  If nothing else, I’ll guarantee that you learn something about your body by checking it out.  Give it a go, and let me know what you think.

Enjoy Your Ride

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
