Hello - less of the bloke diet bashing. I think you'll find that us male lardys find it just as difficult to shift the excess bulk. I think a lot of it varies from person to person. I know its just a simple equation of energy in versus energy out but I really do think that some people have it naturally easier.

Roll on lunch!

(sorry count)

higher metabolic rate = more energy out. so yes some people do have it easier.

(ps blokes require more calorie intake for the same weight as women - ok i've stopped now)

Why do men require more calories and can apparently drink more alcohol (although I've proven that wrong enough times)?

Have we got a special gland....and before anyone says anything crude (cause that's my job) not that one!
14/01/2004 at 10:53
coz you're bigger, generally.
14/01/2004 at 11:02
so surely its should be based upon size and not gender...If that is the case then surely its misleading as a taller person will require more than Ronnie Corbett etc.
14/01/2004 at 11:04
Yes - but I said 'generally'.

I'm sure there are more complex physiological reasons, but WildWill's not here at the moment.

I've lost 0.2 of a pound - yay!!
14/01/2004 at 11:14
no - i meant a bloke of the same weight needs more calories than a girlie. i'm assuming its metabolic rate related again. Michael Keeley did a link to the website for calculating how many calories you need and its totally different for men and women.

but obviously not everyone is the same. some men will have slower metabolic rates. but in general.
14/01/2004 at 11:14
Isn't it something to do with females carry more fat cells than men, so that why is easier for the guy's to lose than us.

Or am I talking a load of B's

Gonna have to put it here or I'm gonna blow it. Have a brokers lunch today, how the hell do ya be good with that one, must try tho.

TL - tell them your on antibiotics and then no one will question your no drinking motives.

That's what I need...a bl00dy infection!
14/01/2004 at 11:20
its perfectly acceptable not to drink.

if you tell them you're on antibiotics people will wonder what you've got!!!!

about 2 years ago i switched over to no alcohol at lunch meetings and minimal alcohol at evening meetings (except internal ones obviously!)

no-one batted an eyelid at it.
14/01/2004 at 12:00
If I go without alc everyone gives me that raised eyebrow look and asks if I have something to tell them.
14/01/2004 at 12:01
I do as well Lista, I always get, but your an aussie!
14/01/2004 at 12:03
LOL Lista!

Leave them guessing!
14/01/2004 at 12:04
I tend to get irritated quickly when people give me "why aren't you drinking?" attitude. the down-the-pub-after-work culture can be pretty suffocating sometimes.
14/01/2004 at 15:26
OK was really good (did help that said broker doesn't drink, which is a first for me).

Had fish for starter and main course and fruit for afters.

Wot the rest of you had then.
