    Unhappy Operation 'fit into drysuit by April'

    So I've porked up a bit since the summer and need to lose a bit of weight. As part of this I have agreed to run every day and if I miss one I have to attend a spinning class (I'd rather have my fingernails pulled out). I'm just having a little public thread here as an additional motivation. 1st run today, 33 minutes. I think it's about 3 miles, but it's also 60% fields with the rest being tarmac. Am listening to 'His Dark Materials' - not much of a beat, but brilliantly distracting!

    Eat less. If you run you will be more hungry and eat more

    If you need to lose a lot quickly, look into Keto diet.
    I lost 14kg in 4 months, dropped three sizes on my waist!

    Still do-able, particularly if you eat eggs and dairy.

    That's hilarious - I'm used to seeing the weirdness of all vegetarian food being 'fake meat' and this is full of 'fake bread' recipes - I particularly liked the sound of 'it doesn't have the texture of oatmeal, but it tastes darned close!'

    I will have a proper look!

    Bread is the one thing I really miss; decent bread that is.

    Eggs, cheese, avocado, leafy greens, oily fish, nuts.

    It works.

    If you miss something the chances are you will start to eat it at some point again. That's why most diets are yo-yo but with varying periodicity. If you can lose some then stabilise you really have done well. For long term body mass control it is important to eat well but only as much as you need. Exercise is good (good for the heart and makes you feel good) but you really need a lot of it to burn many calories. A colleague of mine used to cycle with me and decided he "needed" to stock up pre-ride with food for "energy". He ate more than my normal lunch as a pre-ride snack. (Yes he was and still is overweight).

    I was somewhat overweight as a kid (mum's cooking) but stabilised at more or less normal in my 20s. No eating between meals and no sugar. And yes, I'm hungry - in this weather all bloody day long am I hungry.

    When we lived in Italy it was so hot you just couldn't eat and we both lost weight without any "diet" or desire to lose weight. I have put on a few kilos since we got back to UK from France - shit food here. Almost impossible to buy decent bread in UK unless you have a artisanal bakery near you.

    Had mini pork pies for lunch. Horrible. Greasy. Shit. Hydrogenated vegetable oil - mega shit. No wonder people are all chunky.
