The get fit, stay fit thread

Instead of beer, vodka and diet coke. You can drink something radiculous like over 100 cans of diet coke before you reach the calorie content of a can of normal coke!!

This is a very good point. The amount of calories in beer is atrocious, and it should be highlighted more by people seeking to lose weight. It's about 120 calories a bottle from the last one I looked at.

And yes physical exercise is good and keeps your body in shape. But instead of forking out for a gym membership, where you might only use the treadmill and bike machine, just go for a walk or a jog. Even walking or cycling to work when you normally get a lift or take the bus can make a big difference.

I walk a lot, most places but it doesn't cut the mustard if you're looking for proper fitness. It's not intense enough (and I'm walking quickly, up hills a lot) and even if it did would take too long or too far each time to acheive much. As soon as you have to step up the pace to a jog you'll be breathing out your arse again.

Small weight loss only needs combinations of good diets, some excersise and stopping the lazy attitude.

If your seerious about shifting weight I would recommend Scottish Slimmers recipes. Great food and you can still have good portions.

Thats right. You dont need to go berserk to get yourself fitter. The trouble is that people get discouraged once they decided to do something about their diet and fitness levels. They expect to see results right away and for most people that just doesn't happen. It takes a while and folk need to be aware of it and just try not to chuck it when they dont have a six pack within a fortnight. It takes a long time to turn yourself into a fat mess and it will take a while to shift fat off again. Eating sensibly and walking the length of yourself as often as possible will do the trick. You dont need to be sweating like a rapist to shift weight. My mate lost about three stones just by walking to his work every day instead of driving. He's probably walking about four or five miles a day which will be burning three or four hundred calories at least. He eats the same stuff he always did and still does his Norm out Cheers impersonation every night. But he looks like he did when he was twenty. A bald ugly b*****d. <_<

Yeah i could probably do with just improving a bit of fitness by doing some exercise, maybe a bit less fat but on the whole there's not much to change. I'm certainly not going out my way to restricting what I enjoy while I get away with it.

Just as well I'm smarter and more youthful. ;)

I'm better looking and the chicks love me. <_<

It won't even be an issue for another decade at least. I did start to get heavier in my mid thirties, mainly because I quite playing football with my mates. I was always able to pretty much eat whatever I liked too and I still do, although I'm active again so it doesnt matter at all. I'm fitter now than I was as a teenager or in my twenties. I do have to work at it now though as I was always on the go when I was younger. I didn't learn to drive until I was 25 so I was used to walking or cycling for miles daily. As soon as you start driving you get lazy. :P

I would disagree, they say that a brisk walk is just as effective as a normal jog. Obviously if you were to bring fartlek training or increasing the intensity of your jog this won't be the case. But a dog owner would lose the same amount of weight as someone who jogs 2 miles round a park at the same pace, by following a good diet and walking his dogs 2-3 times a day using a "brisk" pace.

This is only for people who would want to lose a couple of stone comfortably over a period of time without having to push themselves too hard.

You want to get under 10 stone?? Why? Unless you're a midget that's not healthy.

I was about 10 and a half stone about three years ago and was roughly the same height as now. It was on the edge of unhealthy but f**k knows why. I was still eating quite well, drinking (though not beer, which probably accounts for a lot in my case) and only did a really modest amounf of exercise. Though walking everywhere, especially in the summer, for miles.

It might work for losing weight (though bear in mind that a jogger should really cover more distance than a walker anyway, in time or effort), but I think you should work on a bit of fitness if you're going down the improvement route. It also means you can do different activities rather than walking, much easier.

Ye I agree but everyone has their own goals for weight loss. Some people want a "beach body" for the summer holls, others want muscle to get stronger but some might just want to fit into the trousers they had 10 years ago. Personally I'm in the gym up to 5 times a week just now but I like to follow different work outs. Like you said VT, it allows me to do a variation of activities.

5'8? You're tiny.

Do you reckon? I thought I was quite tall. :(

What a crock of shit.

I'm 5'8, weigh 9 and a half stone and probably have a healthier diet and exercise regime than anyone else on this site.

Edit: For the OP, I posted something on the weight gain thread about a healthy diet. The exact same rules will work for weight loss, with the only difference being that you need to take on less calories than you're burning.

You probably dont.

Jogging will eventually f**k up your knees and hips.

Buy a bike as great cardio vascular exercise and low imact on joints

Too right. Distance running is a fast track to knee and hip replacement surgery.

If you dont want to be out and about get a crosstrainer machine. All the same motion as running and uses the same muscles but it doesn't impact on your joints. Cycling is great too of course.

In all seriousness, my original comment was a bit wankerish and you were right to pull me up about it.

seems to work quite well, and i need to lose weight, generally being healthy would be fine for trying to keep my weight at a normal level. once i've lost a few pounds i can go back to eating those glorious luxuries in life like pasta or bread
