Fat Cnut ? Want To Loose It For Free ?

#1
Ive been a desk jockey for some years now and until recently getting very little exercise ,3 stone overweight and late 40`s ,so 4 months ago I decided to do something about it .

First month walking 2 -3 miles every other day with the dog , fast pace so getting a sweat on , second month 5-6 miles and month three 6 + miles every other day with the odd 20 miler once or twice a month, no running or anything else other than a bit of stretching.

From month one I cut right down on carbs , cereal for breakfast , lunch is crackers with tinned fish / lean meats and plenty of tomatoes and fruit , evening meals pretty much the same as usual , meat and veg but cut down on the potatoes , hardly eat bread at all, I have a pig out day on Saturdays and eat what ever I want and drink plenty of real ale .

Result : I`ve lost 3 stone in just under 4 months ,lowered blood pressure, no longer get back trouble , just a few knee twinges hence Ive avoided running ,but now Ive got the bug I do intend to start running maybe twice a week but on soft terrain ,now the nights are closing in I`m thinking of re joining a local gym which should strengthen my back and upper body even more .

So fat cnuts who want to loose it you have no excuse , it cost me zero on special foods , supplements , diet books or gym fee`s to loose 3 stone.

How women tend to exercise/diet.

"I've just eaten a whole cake, I must do some exercise"

* does 10 mins in front of z-list celebs workout DVD, phone rings...spends 2 hours exercising gob*

"oooh, that workout was hard...I shall reward myself with a cake"

No honestly they do, men burn calories faster then women so when each sex decides to deficit their calorie intake by the same percentage the men still expend more kcal. They also use up more calories when exercising than a woman would.

Men are built to use up energy fast and easily replace it, as Neanderthal man had the tools and strength to go out and catch the higher calorific foods. Women are built to store energy easily incase they loose their food source or are unable to go out and collect nutrition due to child rearing.

I mean obviously modern day living means counteracting this is very easily done with a healthy lifestyle and exercise so it's not a excuse to be fat, but studies have shown men can loose weight faster than their female counterparts. I'd link you to a academic journal but you wouldn't be able to access it so it would be pointless.

A few years ago I managed to get rid of several stones of ugly fat.

She's now known as the former Mrs CB.

I have not drunk any alcohol now for three weeks (and one and a half days, to be precise!) - joking aside, the weight has just dropped off and I've lost about 2 inches off my neck and round my paunch :)

However in about six hours time I will start celebrating Trafalgar Night so I imagine that all that good work will be undone in one fell swoop.

If all that makes you feel better about your fat ass, so be it.

Well done for losing it OP, it actually really isn't that hard to drop weight and get in shape, I don't understand why some people make it out to be the krypton factor. Fair enough people have different metabolisms, but making the right lifestyle & diet choices and sticking to them goes a long way.

Have to concur, I have lost 6 stone in 12 months. Still have a stone to lose and that is proving the hard bit. It has taken a lot of hard work, sweat and some pain and anguish. Started off on the couch to 5k program and haven't looked back.

So what exercise are you usually doing and what are you eating ?

My best technique is not to become a fat **** in the first place. Keeping off a couple of pounds is a hell of a lot easier than shifting stones. Oh, and good genes, **** yeah science.
