1 hour of biking every day is pretty good.

I work 20 miles from where i live, I'm tempted to cycle it a few times a week as a commute, that would be a real kick in the cajones for those metabolic pathways!
Here's the dirty secret about fat loss: it's psychology. You know how to lose weight: eat right and exercise. If you do that you'll lose weight. Ease into exercise. This is a marathon, not a sprint. Slowly increase your exercise level. When you start, pretty much anything will work. It changes later.
It's pretty easy to do this for a little while. But you have to -- have to -- make these changes into new habits. Dietary changes are paramount. You can't out-train a bad diet.

Breakfast is three hard boiled eggs, an imperial pint of whole milk, and a small handful of nuts.
For lunch, I've got a mass of Greens, (collard, mustard, Anaheim pepper, and red onions) a big lean steak, and one slice of bread.
Don't have dinner planned yet, but it will probably involve more greens and protein.
Deserts are either fruit, or fruit juice. Occasionally I'll have a sweet of some kind, but that is rare, and is the only processed sugar I'm eating right now.
Drinking as much cold water as I can stand.
And today is resistance day! Going to beat my last workout for bycycle crunches, and pushups. I'm going to see if I can do some incline push ups. I used to be just fine with them, but I wasn't strong enough last time I worked out. I think today I'll be good, as I've had two days to rest, and my kung-fu feels strong!
Then a little cardio on the exercise bike to get the heart rate up and down a few times.
It's all good!
