Hello fellow diet and weight loss enthusiasts! I have been really busy lately, so this update has been somewhat delayed. Some good news. I weighed myself this morning, and I have lost another 3.5 pounds! The same regimen has been followed as before. Exer-cycling for 15-miles on Monday~Friday each week, adding a couple miles of walking per week as well.

Before I started on the exercycle, I was walking 3-miles per day, every day, but I was not losing the weight I was expecting to lose. The exercycle burns about 1200+ calories at 15-miles, and at about 39~40 minutes per workout this totals 6,000 calories per week burned.

The cholesterol-lowering project will continue into September, as I feel that testing the premise that 1/4-teaspoon of ground cinnammon, twice-daily will have had sufficient time to prove it's worthiness. I will then schedule a cholesterol screening, and we'll see what has occurred!

I must say that I have recently enjoyed greater energy, mowing the lawn and taking care of my own yard has been made easier by the increased stamina provided by exercycling. I am also sleeping like a baby, no doubt due to the increased physical activity.

My doctor has stated that walking is another excellent form of exercise, however it takes me approximately one-hour to walk three miles, and I do not know how many calories I am burning in one-hour of walking.

Suffice to say, I am pleased with the results of my diet modification and weight-loss experience to date. If my cholesterol screening returns with a positive report, then I will be doubly pleased!

Thank you for reading this blog about my diet and weight loss program. Please do leave a brief comment below, I promise to respond.

Respectfully, Nicholas
