I love pies, but I don't need them, and so I eat them occasionally as a treat (and I really enjoy them much more).Since I got back home to a routine (November 2012), I have lost 10kg.

I have not been on a diet, just eating more healthily, walking, and changing my attitude to food. Diets are for a set goal, and then you go back to old habits, which is why they don't work. A change of attitude and lifestyle can be permanent.


I used to live to eat, now I don't.
I start the day with coffee, and don't breakfast until I am hungry. Usually about 10-11 am. But I will also eat at about 9-10pm as well. I eat chocolate, and take sugar in my coffee. I have just cut right back (not out) on sweets, fried food, red meat, and bread.

If I am hungry I eat, if not I don't. The only regular meal I have is dinner with my family in the evening, and that is more to do with being part of a family. I eat smaller meals or snack about 4-6 times a day.


I also walk about 60-90 minutes everyday. This doesn't leave much time for TV.
Someone once said that the biggest killer is a sedentary lifestyle. It is also one of the biggest causes of diabetes.
I read somewhere that if you are diagnosed as pre-diabetic, an hours walking a day can put things back to normal. Not running, walking. Even chubby guys with bad knees like me can manage that (just wear suitable shoes for walking).

I'm riding my tandem bike with the mrs. And enjoy exploring the town.
I'm also changing my life diet to vegan but with some fish.
The movie "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" was a real education how to make changes.

it's my wife's birthday today and at 56 she'll probably be less than thrilled to be offered a bicycle for her birthday - I intend to get two so we can get some outdoor exercise together.

First time I have ever seen my wife speechless  %%
Anyway she wants to think about it for a while.

Hi Dave you had better be in good shape when you get here in the summer. At 3500 ft above sea level it soon sorts the fit from the half dead. Never mind that I would have to reinforce the bed, I can hear you puffing from here(I am not much better) at 14 stone & 5ft61/2ins.I too am way over weight I should be about 11 1/2 stone but health has a lot to do with it having no Thyroid Gland anymore drugs don't really do the job. I have lost 30lbs. in the last 6 months & would be happy to do a weight loss competition on the forum with the money going to the RNLI. Regards, Mick B.

Mick I would be quite pleased if I was as fit as 'half dead'  :embarrassed:
Jury is still out on Jenny's bike but I am getting one soon.

Never had to worry about my weight in the 40 or so  years since I left the Navy BUT I stopped smoking in February 2012
and I didn't notice the extra weight sneaking up on me. Used to be 6ft and 11 1/2 stone now 5'9" (damaged my spine)
and was 14 stone before Christmas but started diet already and lost 7lbs so far. Aiming for  12stone.
I wish you all the best of luck in your diets or fasting days.  I so miss those M & S luxury mince pies.

TWIMC the latest Radio Times (26 Jan - 1 Feb 2013) has an 8 page pullout about the 5:2 diet, now called the Fast Diet.

It is now being 'sold' as a weight loss diet, possibly because it has worked that way for a lot of people and it seems to be going viral too.

I wondered why I haven't seen you for awhile. Perhaps I did, but just didn't recognize you. BY.

Since moving here 3 and a bit years ago I have put on probably 10kilos or 22lbs in old money
I actually feel better for it as well! I now shift from 78-82 kilos depending on the season.  A bit like seals we gain weight in the winter as insulation.
Just need to quit the evil smokes now!
