2018 diet.....

Recommended Posts

so - December was largely spent laying around, fiddling with cars, bit of Christmas shopping and lots of laziness and drinking.

the missus joined fat club last jan - and she’s done amazing - lost 3 stone over the year. She’s now being massively controlling and insists I’m fat. So I got on the scales last Wednesday 90.1kg. Hmmmm couldn’t argue the fact.

im not allowed to join her fat club session and I wouldn’t want to anyway. She does slimming world. So I’m freeloading off the book she has. You can eat like a pig - but on meat and salad and fat free stuff. I’m missing crisps, chocolate and kebab though.

weighed in this morning - 88.0kg. Going the right way at least. I have to be honest I’m weighing Day and night to keep myself away from the chipshop temptation - the local Greggs I’m now fearing will try and kidnap me .

lets see what this year brings - how long I’ll stay good who knows. But - and it’s a big but - owning an Esprit means getting too fat just ain’t an option.

I been doing a random fasting thing. Week days dont eat anything until 4.00pm. No breakfast no milk in your coffee etc then at 4.00 break your fast with fruit or veg then what the fuck you like until midnight. Cake crisps if you so desire. (funily enough though I get cravings for kale and steak?!)

Weekends you eat at anytime although you start to feel you dont need to eat much during the day.

Sounds bleak and too hard but its pretty easy actually. 

People often say if you eat a good breakfast you snack less etc. Well Ive always found when I eat breakfast I end up eating my whole pack lunch by 10.00 and have to go to the shop to buy extra!

One thing im sure we are all eating too much food. Much more than we need but when 5 jam donuts cost about 20p sometimes its not easy!

Oooh couldn't entertain either of those Ian. Have you tried Swimming and/or cycling? I was petrified that I'd clap the pounds on when injury put paid to my Fell Running 'career' but the swimming/cycling combo have kept the pounds off.

I'm sure I once read that if you loose weight dieting you have got to keep the weight off for a couple of years or it goes straight back on the minute you look at a pint and a curry.

Every morning I get up and think I’ll start the diet today followed by each night I go to bed thinking I’ll start the diet tomorrow. 

I’ve always been a yo yo dieter. Over the years I’ve gone through periods losing 4 stone, 7 stone and 3 stone to then put it all back on again. No getting away from the fact I like my food. (don’t we all) I feel great when lighter and life is great, more energy, want to do more things ect ect.

Reality for me is I start work at 8am and get home at 8.30pm then something to eat and slob in front of TV is the norm. 

Not a healthy lifestyle.


Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

I’m starting slowly, but making progress. I haven’t had a drink for five days, despite the wife bringing home.a couple of bottles of wine yesterday.

Anyone in any doubt about dieting or needing motivation to get thin - just look at how fat Clarkson has become - he's only 5 years older than me :)

I follow (not intentionally!) Buddsy's approach of not eating much during the day. By 5pm I'm chuffing starved though!

Love it! A thread on the Lotus forum about adding lightness! :D

Lots of good info there, Jacques. I'm feeling the same pinch. It's insidious. A pound or two a year and a decade on you've got an extra 20! Weather's crap here now so got me an indoor trainer for my bike and can now ride while I binge. It's a start.

Speaking of Wheels, It would probably be a good idea not to do as they do in a farting center - ehrm... fitness Club: spinning on bicycles without extra cooling.

So, for my home trainer, it's a apparatus from Tacx I have had for many moons, and that I attatch my racebike to, I place a fan slowly blowing cold air towards me, to cool me Down. If not, it's unnatural, and the body can overheat, which is very dangerous. Remember, spin up and Down slowly, also to get the Waste products out of the muscles. And soin lightly, not heavy gears. That will just destroy your knees.  Trust me on that. just my advice. Just don't get a Cold then ;)

And take an ordinary towel and place it on the floor udner the bike. It' s well worth it.

Kind regards,

jacques

ps: Barry: it would be a good idea for you to look at what you eat, combined with a Little exercise and drink Water, sleep enough etc. That way you attack the problem from all sides, and you'll feel better, as you can actually eat normal. and feed fresh, not exhausted. And in the beginning it's also loosing liquid (Water) from the body that makes it go fast. Later on, it's more stable fat burning. But cleansing ones liver is a very good idea. Both short term and long term. That is: the get rid of Waste products from the body.


Nobody does it better - than Lotus ;)

Jacques, on a scale of 1 - 10 of wasting your time talking about healthy eating and drinking, Barry scores 11.
