Lay off the maccy Ds and other take out type things, have a special day once a month you can get yourself take outs and crap.

Otherwise, potatoes, meat, bit of salad, plenty of pasta, chuck some fish in and gallons of water and you'll be laughing.

Eat lots of fruit and veg.

Avoid anything processed.

Avoid carbonated drinks, especially diet varieties with aspartame as that is poisonous.

Avoid anything that has been fried.

Start running now to get fit and harden your feet.

If you are getting thinner, this is a sign that you are burning more calories than you are consuming.

Poisonous? Not quite, but it has been suggested that aspartame actually increases the appetite.

I lost over 3 stone by just cutting out the crap and staying active.

No chocolate, no booze, no fast food, no fizzy drinks, no sweets.

You get the idea.

I can give some advice, don't make silly targets.

My beloved West Ham could help me today with my New Year resolution of getting in shape and losing some flab. I said to myself in jest that everytime Reading scored a goal I'd eat a mince pie. I'm now stuffed to the brim and have keep-me-awake heartburn.

When I started training I cut out the crap, started running and visited the gym three times a week. I picked up strength fairly steadily (enought to sail through the PFT sit-ups and press-ups anyway), but I have lost a lot of weight too. However, I am also finding that my endurance/CV isn't improving as much as I hoped. Someone has suggested to me that I might be running too fast for too short a period of time. Are longer runs at a lower pace the answer? It has also been suggested that getting a heart-rate minitor and finding out my 'training zone' might be a good idea. Any comments?

I wondered if anyone would question that. IIRC correctly, aspartame contains 10% methanol which metabolises into formaldehyde in the body. I'm no chemist but that seems to be a bad thing. Hopefully this link will work.

This website may not be everyones' cup of tea but I find it interesting.
