    My friend has some kind of tapeworm or something. He's short and thin as a toothpick, but eats candy and junk food 24 hours a day, constantly. It's almost scary. He is active, but not as active as some, well, chunkier people I've seen .
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    Stay away from carbs! It is harder than it sounds but it does work. I mean ALL carbs. Just 2 full weeks with no carbs and you will be amazed!

    And yes eating less or exersizing more or both is truely the only way to lose weight. Exersizing has the added benifit of releving stress also.

    Don't listen to this. Eat a balanced diet. Carbohydrates, in moderation, are part of a balanced diet. They provide energy, which you should be burning off with daily activites and exercise. In the long term, fad diets DO NOT WORK for the vast majority of the population.

    THIS IS HORRIBLE ADVICE! Your brain requires carbs to function. I have seen first hand the effects of carb depletion and it is scary. You ability to reason, think clearly, drive, control your emotions, and hell stand up stright will go right out the window.

    Food just like pretty much everything else is all about moderation. Too much of anything can be deadly and too little of most things can be equally deadly.

    Join an African music quartet. Tell them that you play the bongo drum and can bring it at short notice. Trust me, if you slap it enough times it will take the hint.

    Alas. It seems there is no alternative for me than to go jogging/other form of easily accessible exercise. So generally, how long/how far/how often do you need to jog if you want to get into shape? I heard if you do 1 hour of exercise per week, you can stay in shape if you're already fit - but that was referring to aerobics and 1 hour of straight exercise, which I have neither the time nor patience to complete (in jogging) in one stretch.
    Just Google It. √

    Second, I cannot possibly believe you lack an hour of free time a week.

    The new recommendation is one hour to 90 minutes of aerobic exercise per day to maintain.

    Of course, I'm just too lazy to go see a doctor Which is part of the problem. And I don't lack an hour per week, it's just that I don't know if 1 hour spread over a week is any different than 1 hour all at the same time.

    @Thantos: Ouch, that's a lot of exercise.. looks like I'm doomed to eventual obesity.

    Well that new recommendation came out last week or the week before. I heard about it on the radio.

    Yes. You burn the most calories once your heart rate gets up to a certain amount and stays there for awhile.

    I also mispelled relieving okay really it was just a typo!

    It's not as if I suggested you should quit carbs for life, just for a short period of time.

    Two weeks without carbs would be very bad.

    LIPOSUCTION.

    and with all the fighting about carbs (a la atkins, south beach, the zone, etc. etc) you should probably read up on them a bit more.

    none of these diet plans say to completely abandon carbs (i.e. intake of 0 carbs). what they do say, however, is that the intake of carbs should be limited to (depending on diet) 20 to 35 grams/day during the first few weeks of the diet, and then slowly add them back in.

    everyone probably knows that it is easier to convert carbs into energy for the body. however, when the intake of carbs is reduced, the body has to resort to using stored energy reserves (i.e. fat).

    also, these diets help those who suffer from Acanthosis Negricans.

    (had to do research for this for a presentation for my medical anthropology class).
