You can have 10 kilos of mine. Then we will both be supermodel thin.

I have a couple of friends with the same problem and no sympathy because everyone thought that was great.

One of them proudly told me the other day she had put on 2 kilos. She still is about 5 underweight. And still smoking! poor devil!

It's not that I dangerously thin, I think.
I'm 195 cm and 70 kgs, so with 10 more I'd be pretty much right where I should be.

What is debargearsification?

I lost 60 pounds in 4 months once.
I got a divorce.
Stress is a good way to lose weight!


just kidding... I'm on a diet myself. Need to lose about 40 lbs.
I tried slimfast, but that got too expensive.
Now I'm just watching what I eat, take vitamins, etc. Lost about 5 so far.

De-barge-arse-ification. To remove one's barge-arse (a colloquialism for having a rather more ample backside - more junk in the trunk - than one desires).

Cheers,

How about exercising. You can eat as much as you like as long as you balance it with training, the hard part is that if you stop training you would have to decrease your food intake accordingly, but this problem is more immediate amongst weightlifters and bodybuilders where the body requires a considerable increase of food. Running is good for burning calories, anything that keeps you in activity will burn calories.

Excellent advice. Also, if you're exercising (cardio and weight lifting), your body assumes it's summer and you're out on the Savannah chasing down lots of food and, consequently, it doesn't need to store any.

First priority should be cardio four days a week. And, although swimming is excellent cardio, it is not very effective for weight management. This probably owing to the water temperature and the fact you are essentially weightless.

Strength training with weights is also important, ironically, more so for women than men. When you lift weights it causes a breakdown in the muscle cells which the body recognizes as inflammation in the blood vessels. It responds to this by releasing a chemical that cleans out the mess you just made.

Then, periodically your body has a staff meeting and the first issue that would come up is, "What if she does that again tomorrow?". To deal with this the body then releases a chemical that rebuilds the muscles. What's so good about this process is that it doesn't just strengthen the muscles you exercised but also the connective tissue and makes the bones denser.

This is very effective for dealing with arthritis and other joint problems. And, since women are more prone to osteoporosis than men, the increased bone density is very good. And you don't have to worry about bulking up; your estrogen will see to that.

An excellent book on this subject, for men and women over 50 is "Younger Next Year" by Chris Crowley and Henry Lodge. They also have a version for women ("Younger Next Year for Women"). Check them out here http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...t+year&x=0&y=0

Also available in eBook format.

But don't you have to run a marathon to burn off a Mars bar (or something like that)?
Not eating the Mars bar means you don't have to go out for a run.

Excercise is good in lots of ways, but I'm not sure it's brilliant for weight loss.

Correct, you still have to eat sensibly. But, if you are exercising regularly, it is easier to manage your weight. It is a lot easier to get weight off if you're doing high and low heart rate cardio four days a week.

When it comes to training I would suggest training as much as you're comfortable with so you still feel like training tomorrow. Most people just through themselves in to heavy workout right away and after a couple of weeks loose interest. Better to train less at a regular interval than a lot and then suddenly stop. Training shouldn't be punishment.
