How Doing Good (and Riding 300 Miles) Leads to Weight Loss






There are so many benefits of doing good beyond the act itself. Studies show that when we help others, we reduce stress, prolong life expectancy, lower blood pressure and increase happiness. All of this comes as no surprise after participating in a charity ride called Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry. I was among 235 riders who pedaled 300 miles over three days to raise awareness and money to fight childhood hunger.
It was amazing to be part of a group that raised nearly $2 million (they?re still accepting donations through June 30) for a worthy cause that?s helping solve a solvable problem in this country. We met the principal of a school in Oakland that is participating in the pilot program to offer breakfast in the classroom for students. She shared with us their discovery of the ripple effect of providing this simple meal. It was astounding: Children?s attendance improved, they learned, they behaved better in class and at home ? and the hope is that they?ll thrive, contribute and become our next wave of leaders.

THE NOTION OF ?ACTIVE HELPING?
If that wasn?t enough, a strange thing happened to us, the riders, along the way. There?s a secondary consequence beyond the valiant one of helping children. It?s that we got healthier, too. By doing this 300-mile ride over three days, we ended up making better decisions about what we put into our bodies. Maybe we passed on the second glass of wine (or even the first ? or is it the third"). Maybe we went easier on the dairy and sugar, and we opted for more veggies. Maybe we ended up losing weight, being less dependent on alcohol or worse things ? and maybe that subtle shift reflected on our loved ones and peers.

CHEF TESTIMONIES AND SUCCESS STORIES
At some point it dawned on us that by signing up for this event, we committed ourselves to getting healthier ? to taking better care of ourselves, watching our diets and following a training plan. After all, you can?t just pick up and ride 300 miles. No way. Most riders were chefs, a profession known for crazy hours, late nights, drinking and eating too much and stress. Many of these chefs used to be active but then, ?life got in the way,? and the pounds crept on.
Take Kevin Nashan of Sidney Street Cafe and Peacemaker in St. Louis, Missouri. He raced in several Ironman triathlons before having kids, then stopped and 70 pounds later, was introduced to Chefs Cycle. Now, after the second year, he?s 56 pounds lighter. ?I didn?t think of the impact at first. The kitchen is infectious ? if you party, the kitchen parties. If you?re healthy and active, then others get healthier, too,? Nashan points out. ?Everyone benefits from a healthy environment. But you?ve got to take care of yourself before you can take care of others.?
