As we reported yesterday, a survey of women who exercise regularly said the second most effective weight loss exercise is walking briskly. New research has shown walking is particularly good at helping overweight premenopausal women reduce weight gain – a classic symptom of PCOS.
But cycling proved to be the most effective weight loss exercise when researchers looked at 18,414 women from a survey called the Nurses’ Health Study II, which began in 1989, continued until 2005 and covers 116,600 female nurses aged 25-42 in the United States.
Overall, 29% said they spent time walking briskly and 48% reported cycling regularly.
“Unlike discretionary gym time, bicycling could replace time spent in a car for necessary travel of some distance to work, shops or school as activities of daily living,” the authors concluded.
“Bicycling could then be an unconscious form of exercise because the trip’s destination, and not the exercise, could be the goal.”
