Even if you can do for an hour, exercises are the best for women to control gaining weight. The primary cause of the problem for women is that they have been consuming far more calories than what their bodies needed, and their bodies simply stored all those spare calories.

By cycling for 20 minutes, you would be burning about 160 calories. Cycling for 30 minutes, 5 days a week, can help you lose about 11 pounds of fat. Cycling is also better than walking, as it burns more calories and can serve you as a means of transport and recreation. If you are a person who does not like cycling outside, then you can do 'stationery cycling' within your house. But for better results exercising in the open air outside is the best.

While helping you from gaining weight, cycling reduces the risk of heart problems, diabetes, and high blood pressure etc. Cycling is also economical as you reach your destination without the need for fuel.
