losing weight is not rocket science, burn more cals than you take in, doing its the hard bit and you have to find a system that work for you and that you can stick to.

Some of you may remember about 2 years ago I lost 30kg in 4 months (172kg to 142kg), Ive managed to keep most of it off, Im about 146kg at the moment.

I used a medically supervised meal replacement, optifast, and lots of walking. The system I used was really only for people who are very obese, I was replacing all meal with the optifast shakes/soups, only 800 cals a day so that even without excercise you lose weight. As I said the plan i was on was radical and really for people for whom it's more important to lose weight quickly than in a healthy way and I was supervised by a Doc. Optifast used to be prescription only but you can now buy it over the counter. For those who are less obese you can mix and match the optifast stuff with light meals & excercise and lose weight in a more slow, healthy manner.

Im girding myself up for another big effort this coming summer to try and get under 130kg

I can sort the main meals, but when you're watching telly eg. and you'ed have a cuppa and a TIM TAM. Rice cake maybe? I really want to find something low fat that I can eat lots of with no consequences. Dried apples? Yogurt?
when i was dieting I found Coke Zero good, a bit sweet and the bubbles fill you up, a BIG drink of H2O and eating a tomato or 2 is also good.

i really should stay out of this thread but...

i find every time i start to put on weight its as a result of poor food choice, i also find that when i want to lose weight i just become a bit more conscious about what i eat (as opposed to eating less)

works for me.

good luck fellas, its a bit of the old mind over body stuff - i reckon exercise is mainly a short term solution

Good work SDTKBob!

I have "fallen" already - 3 beers and four ports after a beautiful dinner including dessert (good most of today though!)

Good news is that I have 5 consecutive days off (from sitting on my arse being chauffer driven) and these will be spent tiling, grouting, decking and flooring = lots of Kj's burned- yahoo.... 90kg's here I come!!!

Cheers
Ian

BTW - ATGreg - you can DO IT........easy....!!!!

You're kidding it was cold. I rode the DR and froze my arse off.

Getting on the pushy next week and back to riding to work.

I hope it warms up

Good stuff Dave. I love my morning walk (used to be a run back in the day). Absolute best time of the day and I feel a million dollars when I get back and have that double espresso

I'm in! I am far to heavy at the moment and I need to lose some weight drastically. I have to admit that I have cheated, I saw a dietician a month ago! She recommended I cut my carbs right back and excercise for half an hour.

We don't eat badly, it's just to many carbs which are the hardest to burn. I can eat all the meat, vege's and fruit I like but only 4 serves of carbs a day. It's harder than it looks, all the good things like pasta, rice, potatoes, ect are carbs!

I weigh 138kg and I am 6'5 - 196cm.
