I exercise every other day for about 30 minutes. I eat more fruits and vegetables and I don't drink soda. Thanks to that I've went from a 14 to an 8. Eating right and exercising works wonders.


Cheers to no soda, but fruits and veggies! I remember when I started this routine, I not only felt, but looked better.

Exactly! More energy and reason to buy new clothes!

I'd loooove to exercise if only I had enough time in my hands. But since it's summer break, I guess I can finally squeeze it in my schedule (busy as always ). Plus the doctor recommended it for me, so yeah.


Just a warning, if you don't make it a part of your routine you will find it really really hard to stick to. I use the I am busy excuse all the time


Thanks for the advice

I lost about 4 inches on my waist, when I wear my jeans I have to put a belt on and I look a hobo wearing huge pants and holding them with a rope

Yes, I do.

- 5-7 mile walk everyday (even in the Winter).
- Gravity based workout daily. 25 chin-ups (palms facing me), 25 push-ups, 25 pull-ups (palms away), 25 weighted squats (50-pound weights).
- 1400 - 2100 steps at 1 minute intervals (1 minute of steps, 1 minute of rest for 20 minutes).

Here are some excellent Ab exercises that anyone can do:

At my age I don't workout to look good, but to maintain health, build bone strength and elevate my heart rate (20 minutes of steps). I would encourage everyone to at least walk 10,000 steps everyday.

BTW ... walking 10,000 steps (about 5 miles) daily only maintains your health ... if you want to assist in losing weight, you'll need to 12,500-13,000 steps daily (about 6 - 6.5 miles). But really, 84% of your total weight loss comes from your diet and food choices and not exercise, so choose wisely what you feed upon. And yes, when you turn 40, if you're still eating like you did when your were 18, 20 or 30 years old, you'll get crazy fat. FYI.

My three simple rules to a long life:

- Eat less (mostly plants).
- Don't smoke.
- Keep moving.



Seems like a lot of cardio and very little resistance training. If you are trying to maintain health, I think the extra resistance training could go a long way. It doesn't have the same degree of cardiovascular benefits (it still does benefit some, however), but the mobility and strength benefits are tremendous for anyone at any age. I'm not suggesting for everyone to become a bodybuilder or anything of the sort, but to give it another (or more thorough) look.

The whole idea of eating less is an interesting one, especially when looking at what happens in most animals, also. It is well known that eating less tends to force the body to focus on regenerative capabilities, which coincidentally allows one to potentially live longer. In the opposite situation, the body tends to focus on reproductive capabilities instead, which always require a glut of energy. I've actually restricted calories slightly in everything from dogs to fish and the effects are surprising. I don't see humans as being any different.

I love exercising though I can become lazy at it sometimes. I try to be fit, and I exercise at least three times a week. Plus at school I'm always on my feet about 6-7 minutes for 5 periods, so I think it's at least something.
I hate seeing and being obese. I worry about it because I know it's bad for people.

I don't really exercise, I do have ticks that I'll do when I answer the phone or when i sit at the desk. I always have to move in some form or fashion. Irritates the hell out of my uncle and whoever is near me.

I used to run a 5K every night after work.

I ended up loosing my job and moving to a different town.

I slacked off . . . gained about a hundred pounds . . . and now I get to take meds for the foreseeable future.

I started eating less and working my way back to the 5K a day . . . lost 15 pounds and I still have to break the 2.5 mile barrier during my workouts.
Being that I'm older, this has really been a bitch to get back in shape...
It takes longer to recover from each workout and if you skip an extra day you have a harder time picking up where you left off. AND if you something stupid and get hurt it takes a lot longer to heal up and be 100%.

The bright side is that statistically, the 50 year-old guy can do 95% of the exercise the 25 year-old guy can do . . . IF you keep in shape.

Strange, I am still breathing.
