    Need to shift the beer gut....

    Right, getting ****ed off with the beer gut. Just been to buy a new suit and I'm up to a 38in waist, always been pretty fit but over the last 5 years I've just stacked on about a stone and half. I struggled to get into my race suit last year, this year I'll have no chance.

    I sit on amy arse all day at work, and would struggle for time and with the cost of going to the gym. I like a beer, only really drink maybe once a week, diets fairly balanced but do like my grub. Not keen on running as I ****ed my knees playing football and cyclings a no go as I live at the top of a big ******* hill.

    Anybody managed to shift the beer gut and if so how ?. Apologies for the gay'ness of the topic, but I figure it's time to sort it out.

    I'm in the same boat. Trying to go swimming at least twice a week and see if I can fit in a session at the local leisure centre too.

    I'm in the same boat, beer drinking doesn't help. I think all I need to do is eat less crappy foods and lay off the beer. I was a skinny git before I started working in an office

    gonna try swimming either before or after work, quite enjoy it. Cycling not so keen on, nowhere decent to ride and impossible to build it up as I'm on top of a hill, basically every direction is downhill....so there a lung bursting uphill ride home..

    On the diet, I struggle. A decent dinner that fills you up for me is meat, veg and spuds. If I don't eat a proper dinner, I'm hungry by 9.30 and eating crisps and biscuits......maybe I'll increase the meat / fish portion, eat more veg and reduce the spud/pasta.

    but surely dogging counts as a team sport ?

    Knackered my feet 5 years ago and steadily been putting on weight ever since.. Used to run maybe 15-20 miles per week cycle about the same and had a gym set up at home which I used about twice per week.

    Why? Because in my job I eat and drink every day, taking punters out to get them to part with their budget!

    So, I now cycle twice per week, probably 30-40 miles, do a load of sit ups using one of those big balls, and have just joined a gym down the road to use their running machine.

    I found that the only thing that burnt off the fat was running, after 2 weeks on the treadmill I can now get into my suits comfortably rather than wanting to undo the top button all the time.

    If your knees are knackered get some good running shoes from a specialist shop. They will sort out the support, and then get on the treadmill. Much better on the joints than the road, after a week or so you will really see a difference. Plus you get to look at all the pretty young things in their skimpy gym gear.

    Pity I am such an ugly old git really!

    I quit drinking (not as bad as it sounds) after a month & a bit it doesn't really appeal anymore. I'm 27 & have had 10 years of 'binge drinking' I really can't remember much of many friday or saturday nights

    I run a few times a week, only a few miles at a time. I have a sit up bench & use a treadmill when the weather's crap. Tried to cut out as much crap food as possible & snack on fruit.
    Okay I believe you, but my Tommy gun don't...
