All this 'diet' crap is funny.........and just that, crap.

We have reverted to the thinking 'if granny couldnt buy it, we dont', and bloody hell its good, plain old meat & veg, rice, pasta etc, but the flavours you can bring about with herbs and/or spices are amazing.

Having said that, we move a lot more since being here, but l still drink too much beer

It might be hard to accept, but being overweight is due to being lazy, lazy with food preparation and lazy with movement.

Almond 'milk' is pretty much flavoured water... 2% almond in the last one I checked

I watched "That sugar film" the other night. Not usually one to walk away from something on the box with any kind of hard thoughts or opinions. But a lot of it really hit home. Good documentary that didn't seem too skewed or biased and included some scientific information to back up the findings. Obviously you'd have to dig for the factual evidence, but everything rang true, not only with me, but also with what I see in the family (particularly relating to the mental/emotional side effects).

As such we've implemented a few changes in diet. Nothing hard or fast. Nothing aimed at losing weight.. but simply eating more whole foods and less "sweetened goods" (which are most things that come out of a box). Getting back to where treats were treats, and not part of the daily indulge. Good thing is that the missus and young fella have taken it in their stride and imo that is half the battle won.

We've always cooked quite balanced healthy meals though, so its really just cutting the softdrink out of the rums, knocking back the bad boxed snacks for more fruit/eggs/nuts, and having the coffee without sugar. That alone should make a pretty significant difference to daily intake.

This 'man shake' crap is just that, crap. It should be called 'Lazy fat bastard shake'.

If you're too bloody lazy to get up 1/2 hour earlier, eat a decent brekky and pack some healthy crib for yourself, then you're doomed to being a fat bastard all your life.

When I see the effect that a bit of self control has had on Arctra and Rocketrod then there's no reason for anyone without a medical condition to be a fatty.

Dean and Rod both posses great intelligence and a strong mind, I guess that's the REAL key to it all.

I already get up at 4:30am each day, no way I'm getting up at 4am and cooking eggs and a healthy breaky! and I don't have the option at work to do cook a healthy breaky.

Fairly easy to prepare some oats / fruit / yoghurt the night before ?

Well, that's what you just have to do Wayne. I get up at the same time (4am), the A/C is set for 3:55. Nice brekky, clean up, pack lunch and off on the 115km ride to work at 5:30.

I just go to bed 1/2 hour earlier, it's all just a matter of time management and motivation I guess. Surely we can all shorten our evenings by 1/2 hour for the good of our health?

It's good to see a few of my closer riding buddies making gains with their health, special mention to Echidna, he rides so much better as a bonus. If you want to keep riding into later years, keeping your weight under control is imperative.

Not many O/55s still riding regularly...

kwakas and jallopy are inspiring 60+ riders, they're both pretty lean and they still have great flexibility and I don't hear any moaning and groaning from them on rides...just the occasional outburst of ^%$^#%@%# when the bikes go down for a nanna nap after lunch....

Only another 14 months and then I can join the +55s club....surely we should get a discount on our NSW rego ???
