I am in for this. Need to shed a stone at least. Am I the only person in the world who has trained for a marathon and put weight on? After my long runs I ate like a pig. I guess that defeats the object. Going to take this seriously though.

Anyone else in for it?

Yeah, I forgot to mention all the Fosters and Stella.

Do I have to give that up as well? Oh pity me!

I get really annoyed with the running clothes manufacturers - they seem to assume that we're all twiglets. The small size clothes might just fit an 8 year old. The medium is about a size 10 and a large is apparently a size 14!!!!

well if they think Puma bint on the right is typical of a woman who runs or does exercises you can see why!

Pavement plodder - which brands do you buy out of interest?!? I do think that size 14 being a large or extra large is stupid (this one got me when out trying to get some trousers for skiing - the size 10 was a medium, the 12 a large and both were on the small side!).

Mostly I find sizing is standard though (i need small / x-small tops and look nout like an 8 year old - its the 30DD chest that does it me thinks!).

One thing about article - a healthy BMI is normally classed as 25 and under not 24 and under.... Hmmmm

Otherwise nice to read :)

btw, I'm starting up on the "you are what you eat" brigade diet.. with a penchant for more 'bad' stuff than recommended in it, but it all makes sense (unlike Atkins, Points-systems etc..) so I'm prepared to give it a go :)

Some good stuff in this article :)

am I the only person in the world who believed the 'at last, a diet where you never feel hungry and loose weight' promises of the GI diet, got bored witless and nearly ate my blotter after 3 days and gained weight?

Have tried to follow Dr Gillian's recommendations but I have an overriding weakness for chocolate.

Do feel better for cutting down on caffeine, drinking more water and cutting right down on the old saturated fats (except chocolate).

On behalf of the food police :

Stop eating you fat b@stards :-))

Are you the same Trinity I bumped into just before GNR?

I beleive there are two of you. I didn't think you needed to lose weight.

I just want to have slimmer legs. Because now I have a to slim waist for any pair of trousers. Or my bum is to fat for my waist.

I must keep away from fast food :). And run more (but that won't be for to soon, because of injury).

I read somewhere that Gillian McKeith has no qualifications in food nutrition at all and qualified nutritionalists say that her views are far too extreme and not terribly healthy.
