| Diet and Healthy Eatery! |
| Rhodesy 17 / Apr / 2008 |
Just wondering really, As me and Jon spend all day in an office together we are bound to see each other eat from time to time...
Jonathan seems to take a more healthy approach to food, whereas I"m more of a "I"m hungry.. I"ll eat a cake" sort of person...
So.... do you watch your diet? exercise? care about your body? work out?

| Well, I have been dieting and exercising (mostly walking daily) since October. We had a "The Biggest Loser" Contest at work and it ran from October till December 21st. I ended up winning a couple hundred dollars, losing 50lbs. I'm still at it and have lost 96lbs and am going to continue.

| Wow! Well done Jason, that's a phenomenal amount of weight!!! You must be feeling pretty good after all that!
In answer to your question Ste, I'm both.... I flit from being obsessively healthy one week to moderately unhealthy the next... unfortunately being a desk-bound type I don't do anywhere near enough exercise to burn it off. That said, with Jason setting such a good example I'm going to have to bite the bullet once and for all and get properly healthy once again!

| Actually, I have been strictly having 3 meals a day, no snacking, and try to take in less calories. I have been doing it since the beginning of 2008.
I have been doing some exercises to tone my belly, but since I'm now working, I don't have much time nor energy.

| Lol, as stephen mentioned I tend to eat very healthily during the day at work, then enjoy a decent meal at home in the evening. I like to cook, so this helps balance things out. I plan to start cycling again very soon, as in this next week!
Stephen eats liek a pig! and tries to force feed me cakes. lol
Well done Jason! thats damn good going!.. like 6-7 stone.. BLIMEY!

| Yeah, Jason, that is great! You had told me about this when we talked, and it sounds like the contest at work motivated you, and keeps you motivated afterward .
I try to walk 3 miles a day, and started working out with free weights for about a half hour every morning for the past three weeks.

| I actually don't do much, but at college it's a 10 minute walk to most of my classes + dining hall, so I end up walking an hour and a half on weekdays haha.
I don't try and eat healthy, but I don't eat much usually so I think it works out. I actually gained 4 pounds over the last two weeks which kind of ticks me off, I don't know if I'll have the motivation to go cycling though to burn it off. I'll let nature do it for me ^^

| Congrats, citzen, I suppose you now feel like flying without those 96 lbs.
What's your BMI folks? I've never considered changing my diet to lose some weight, just because I never had problems with overweight etc. I spend almost half of my day sitting by my computer, other half at my classes. But even while eating junk food in terrifying amounts my BMI never goes over 25, http/www.thebmicalculator.com/ tells 21 at the moment.
I figured out theese things help my health a lot:
1. Eating some fruits between the meals - apples, grapes or raisins are better snack than pack of chips.
2. Using bicycle as my transportation device (whenever possible) - I cycle about 15 kilometers daily Mon-Sat.
3. Playing football (soccer) couple of hours every week - it's fun, relaxes my mind after intellectual work.
4. Drink half liter of sweetened tea with lemon after major exertions - good fuel for body, and obviously cheaper than most of common "energy drinks".
Oh, since sport was mentioned, who do you think will win Champions League this year?

| My BMI is 22.5.... puts my smack bang in the middle of the ideal area, I don't tend to watch what I eat... Last weekend I had about 6 donuts in a day... bit over the top I think.. |
