Are you trying to lose weight as a cyclist to improve your power to weight ratio and frustrating by the rate of progress?

Our Ask a sports dietitian question of the month comes from Jamie who asks: "I am struggling to work out why I'm not making any progress with my weight loss. For some reason this morning I weighed myself and I'd put on over a kg. Why do you think this is? What am I doing wrong?"

As a sports dietitian, I regularly have conversations about weight loss, 'lack of progress' and the thoughts, feelings and emotional responses that follow. Listen in to hear what I recommend when weight loss progress isn't what you expect.
