Sensible is the answer.Sensible eating and sensible exercise.

Just got in from a visit to the main hotel in the town, i have never seen the car park so full no room at all. When i asked what was on i was told that it was the first weightwatchers meeting after Christmas and New Year, the receptionist said it was like this every year but not to worry their would be plenty of room in a couple of weeks!!

Walk everywhere. If a car journey is less than 15 minutes, then walk it. Stick to that and you'll be fine. Oh, and stay off the pies.

Unless your required route is up the M1. You'd need to jog, at least...

15 minutes? That's about 10 miles. That'd take nearly three hours; more if laden with a week's shop from Morrisco.

Cheers

Isn't the speed limit 30 in built-up areas in UK ?

15 mins in a car in most areas of England gets you about 4 miles these days. And if you did that hiking each time, the pounds would drop off. Except on the M25, where the fear would make you shed more than the pounds

Anyway, you pedantic lot, it's the sentiment that counts. Cut out the short car journies. And if you can't fit the weekly shop into a rucksack, get it delivered.

All hail Ocado!

What's a built-up area? Is that like suburbia? Average speed 16 mph? Gee, glad I don't live there

Whilst the sentiment is laudable (and I would agree in theory), walking is not practical for a lot of people; there are vast tracts of rural England which are remote but inhabited. I can walk to my next door neighbour's and I can walk to the pub. I cannot walk to the nearest shop unless I devote all winter daylight hours to doing it There is no street lighting so personal safety needs to be considered.

Sure, if you're pushing the red line on the bathroom scales

You can always find an excuse

Pies... they've a lot to answer for.

mini discovered pies in Zimbabwe of all places, on the shelf (back when...) too easy. Went there a lithe, toned chap... returned a slob (nowt to do with the evening steaks...)

Never really got over it..(106Kg 5'10" at the mo, too old for the front row)

If you wish to lose fourteen pounds, try substiting bread and dripping for the pies.

As it says in the Bible, "as constant dripping weareth away the stone............"

Eliminate anything white:
- white flour
- white sugar
- white pasta
- white rice
- white potatoes.

These raise your GI (glucose index) which will not only cause weight gain, but will inflame cellular structures leading to disease and premature aging.

Fruit juice is not a diet food. It also raises the GI. Have the whole fruit instead, but try to avoid high GI fruit like watermelon.

I have found that a high-protein/ low carb. breakfast will stave off my hunger pangs for most of the day.

122kg? Wow!

Endoscopic gastric bypass. Go for it.

I'll nip & tuck the eventual excess.

I don't have a weight problem and I don't have to watch what I eat - the secret? ...

I don't gorge myself, I don't eat more than I need.

I eat enough chocolate/McDonalds/curry/pizza that it is a nice change when i have them (except for the McD-that is never a nice change). I eat sensibly and make only what food I will need (e.g. I don't make 3 sandwiches thinking "I will eat 2 this morning and save one in case I get hungry later"), I do however carry a cerial bar and/or a piece of fruit with me most of the time.

I rely on public transport as much as possible (easier here than in Blighty, I know) and walk the mile from my house to the city centre from where I can get to anywhere (even though I could simply catch a bus just 100m from my house). Doing this a couple of times a day (walking at a brisk pace) goes some of the way to an excercise regime (or in my case goes ALL of my way to an excercise regime).

Lastly, don't drink more than you need to just be sociable. My understanding is that all the calorific alcohol you put down your neck will cause your body to say "what the hell am I supposed to do with this? OK, fat it is then."

Thats me, my life and I have never had a problem with weight.

RIX

p.s. Mrs RIX and I do most of our cooking from first principles. Packaged stuff from a Sainsbury or Iceland freezer may be a quick fix, but it won't do too much for your waistline. Better to buy a cook book or two and get a new hobby that involves a lot of fresh fruits and veg.

p.p.s If you stick with some of this advice, don't expect it to come off overnight, however once it does come off it is more likely to stay off if you stick with a regime such as this (as opposed to a crash diet).

Here in N. America, lapbanding is very popular. From what I gather, it is not as invasive as the bypass.

Since the new year, the American lap band clinics are advertising their services like a fire sale! I don't mean to sound trite - obesity is a huge problem here - but what worries me is the fact that many are becoming flippant about their weight because they can resort to lap banding eventually.

I do respect all health-care professionals, but I believe 110% in prevention when possible - especially after my one and only surgery (which was a relatively minor procedure) almost killed me due to an error on the part of the anaesthesiologist.

Now I am very worried.

Thanks for the suggestions guys.

Fish pie for supper, exercise "stepper" on its way, dog lead ready, baman on strict orders to refuse my request for real ale- here goes. Watch this space.

(PS is it worth setting a target weight- I'm 6 foot 4?)

Fish pie
Ginge hun, it may have fish in it but it's still A PIE Mashed potato and a creamy sauce for the fish isn't going to be the most slimming meal I'm afraid.

I sometimes get post-baryatric surgery patients to tidy up. Lotta work.

6'4"/1.93m and 122kg/268.4lb makes for a BMI of 32.7 which is well into the Class 1 obese category (30-34.9)

"Normal" BMI is 18.5-24.9 - Taking a target BMI of about 22 and a height of 6'4"/1.93m gives a target weight of 85kg.

Hmmm. I'd be realistic and aim at a healthy 95kg.
