I was certainly getting fat before I acquired my cargo bike. I sit at a desk all day. I like being thin, or at least thinner than I was. I have never been good at cutting down on food. And anyway it's a double fail. You cut down on food :( and cutting down on food makes only the most marginal difference to how much weight you lose :( :(
I can only speak personally of
course, but riding my cargo bike has, to my great surprise, taken off 5 kg of totally
unnecessary body weight in 5 weeks - and I haven't even been trying. I love that Sextus Empiricus.
