    Then you reach that age, 24 – 25… your muscles give up, they wave a little white flag and before you know it you’re suddenly a fat bastard.

    I’m 23…

    I’m very nearly 22, and it started happening to me over the last eight months, while I’ve been living in the States. I mean I’m not huge, but no, thank you – I don’t think I will let myself turn into a fat git. I’ve bought a bicycle, I cycled to work today (took me an hour and fifteen minutes, too) and I’m determined to lose the weight I’ve put on.

    I’ll be 42 this Friday and still take a size 32 waist in trousers, but I think I got lucky in the metabolic stakes. I do walk at weekends, and total about 30 mins walk into work every day (and 30 mins back). I don’t pig out on junk food (just the occasional treat), I do drink but not every day. I could do with more exercise, wish there was a swimming pool closer to where I live.

    I’m getting a bike this week to cycle to work, as I’m sick of being a fat ugly cunt.

    Unfortunately, it’ll only help solve the first one of the three.

    #121115
    Andrew

    And only solve it from the arse down – I’ve been cycling to work daily since 2001 and it’s left me with normal human-sized legs and the same fat gut.

    Anyone got any suggestions for exercise that will help get rid of my belly? I’m tempted to go down the Bottom route, and try liposuction with a vacuum cleaner…

    Swimming. Seriously. Once or twice a week, build up the number of lengths you can do each time, one of the best all over body exercises you can do. Mike signed on with a gym near where we live and it helped him keep his weight down.

    #121120

    I tried swimming for a bit. But the problem is that it’s something you have to actually get off your arse and do, rather than something you do every day by default, like cycling. But I guess there’s no other option. Ta for the advice.

    Robert Llewellyn would be ashamed of me.

    Don’t go to him with your fucking weight problems!

    #121122

    EAT LESS FOOD!! Smaller portions, eating more slowly to better register when you’re full, stopping when you ARE full rather than when the plate’s clear, less snacking, replace some of the snacks with flavoured rice cakes or cereal. (To be fair, all this IS slightly working for me this year. Just need to break some bad habits.)

    The problem with exercise is that you have to maintain it. Drop the thrice-weekly swimming sessions and it all starts to creep back on. I’ve upped my exercise to ‘a little bit’, I’m walking to the station rather than taking the bus, but nothing much more. Because I don’t have the will to keep it going.

    When I go full-time freelance (one happy day), I’m going to have to force myself to cycle for 20 minutes each end of the day despite working at home – just so I don’t hit blimp proportions.

    What I found really helped was focussing on a food’s calorie content rather than fat content.

    I always assumed…less fat means less weight put on. But n’est pas. Surprising foodstuffs like bread will make you put on weight.

    And natural fruit smoothies! Who would’ve thunked that?

    Bombay Mix is also incredibly bad. Worse than pork scratchings!

    #121124

    There’s your answer – eat more pork scratchings.

    ‘I tried swimming for a bit.’ translates to ‘I went a few times after a lot of nagging.’ I think we should resume badminton – we have the raquets and shuttlecocks, after all.

    FACT…

    You cannot, with any type of exercise, spot loose weight for a specific part of your body, ask any trainer or dietition.

    You can do specific muscle exercises, but stomach muscle buiding will not directly effect the fat on your stomach.

    Perhaps a G&T Fat Club. We can incorporate that Wii Tennis tournament.

    Mick is quite right, of course, it takes good cardio-vascular exercise to bump up your metabolic rate so you burn more calories. Muscle tone certainly helps, but you have no control over where you lose weight on your body. Cycling will certainly help fitness and is better for the environment, though!

    Forgetting to eat, having to walk up and down 12 flights of stairs to and from work every day and walking quite a bit (quite a lot of walking when friend or family member is visiting) is the excise I get and I weighted myself for the first time in about 5 years a month back and it turn out I’m still the same weight.

    As far as food goes, I think it really is all about the portion control. I’ve noticed a difference since I stopped just piling it on the plate (although I do still have trouble leaving things – I am a plate-finisher).

    Also, while you shouldn’t necessarily count calories obsessively (I do try to keep tabs on this at the moment, but that’s my own personal way of keeping on top of things), it is worth keeping an eye on the content of certain things. I used to love Chicken/Bacon club sandwiches from Tesco until I discovered that they were 700 calories. Chicago Town microwaveable pizzas are about 500 each – and they’re so small you can’t only eat one of them. I nearly bought a pain au chocolate bread and butter pudding from M&S the other day… and discovered that half the pack was 900 calories!

    Little things like that, really. I’m not saying you have to get all obsessive about it, but I think a lot of the time people are unaware of what’s a healthy amount, and what’s just piling it on. Cheese, for example, is quite ridiculously laden with fat and calories (which is really annoying when you’re trying to buy sandwiches and you’ve sworn off factory-farmed meat…)

    I’ve found that I’ve started to loose weight after eliminating dairy from my diet. I’ve also elected to stop taking the bus to work and just walk the 4 or 5 miles there everyday and then the same in the evening. Takes me about an hour and a half either way and tires me out on the way home due to a lot of it being up hill.

    I find stir fry a lot nicer when you use lard to cook it in. I like stir fried eggs the best…only without the stirring. Sunny side up of course

    I’ve been on a diet for the past week or so. I’ve lost half a stone in a week. Not funny or anything, just thought I’d mention it.
