I can eat a whole lot and not gain a pound. So I eat at my leisure.

That's the plan Stan.

That will change, starting in about 15 years.

Yep, but that's a long ways out! I don't really eat A LOT. But sometimes I will go a little crazy on a buffet, but not an everyday occurrence.

I monitor my weight by taking the scale about once annually. Meanwhile, I'm at the tightest fitting on my belt, and the pants keep wanting to fall. Thinking of getting suspenders, a shorter belt, or narrower pants. That's fine. Won't begin to worry unless I lose another 50 pounds (lost 10 in the last year, another 20 would be great).

I run 2-3 miles 2-3x a week out at a local park. It's hard on my feet and knees, and it damn near kills me while I'm doing it, but it sure feels good the rest of the day.

I'm not fat at 6'2" and 185lbs, but I'm not liking what gravity (and too much beer) is starting to do to my body. 😄

For exercise, I walk, bike, and scuba dive. Spearfishing and lobstering while cold water scuba diving is a strenuous workout. Eat a simple healthy balanced diet with lots of fish during the summer (go figure). Don't smoke, watch no more than 1 hour of TV per day and limit alcohol to no more than one beer per day.....usually. Drink lots of water. Avoid pain killers, vaccines, and sanitizers unless absolutely necessary. At 6' and 165 lbs., it still works for me.

I'm a runner, about 15 to 30 miles a week, depending on how busy my work schedule is and if I am at home or on the road. I'm 50 years old. I run in Vibram five fingers. I've been doing it now since 2007 with no running related injuries.

Cardude, and the others that say jogging/running is hard on the joints, that is old school thinking that is not based on any sort of fact. Most modern studies actually show that running is good for your knees.

If 2 to 3 miles is tough on your feet and knees, you should consider trying some simple exercises to strengthen your lower extremities. Stand on a step with your heels hanging over the edge and lift up onto your toes. Do 25 reps before and after you run. Do 20 squats twice a week, keeping your knees behind your shoe laces. Stand barefoot on an old towel and wad it up with your toes.

Get someone to look at your form and give you some pointers. That does NOT mean to go to your local running store and run on the treadmill while they video your feet. Look for a coach. Or, here is a great site. Dr. Nick's Running Blog - Running injuries, foot pain, shoes, heel pain - Your source for all running related questions!

Then ditch your big stiff shoes that some shoe company with a vested interest told you were the latest, greatest thing.

Over time, arch support makes your feet weak and should only be used while you are rehabbing an injury. Too much cushioning makes a shoe unstable causing twisting which IS hard on the knees.

Gradually transition into as light/thin/flexible shoe as you can. It's tough in the beginning but oh so worth it in the end.

This unsolicited advice holds true for all you walkers out there as well, it's just not as critical.

I'll get off my soapbox now. Thanks for listening, I hope I helped at least one person. :-)

I think diet is primary.
Read the book "Wheat Belly" and buy into it considerably. Eating more meat now less wheat. Two slices of whole wheat bread produces more shugar in the blood than one full sized Snickers bar. Once sugar and wheat is largely gone healthy eating is mostly achieved. I never drink pop and rarely eat deep fried things. Wine and beer once and awhile (every month about) and lots of apples and oranges. At least half our fruit is organic and Chris has a big garden so kale, carrots, grapes, kiwis, mulberries, zucchini, corn and potatoes are frequently eaten .. especially in the summer.

My sin diet wise is that I miss the most important meal .. mid day about half the time. Very few restaurants offer healthy food. I'm drinking too much coffee again .. not more than one cup a day though. However it's almost always at Starbucks so not weak coffee. Boat work dosn't help.

We read labels on food packages and know carrots contain lots of shugar and celery lots of salt ect.

I was working out at least three times a week. I like what I call the muscle machines. I use about 15 of them and it's great that we use lots of muscles that otherwise don't get used or used very little. When I was young I thought cardio was where it was at but now I feel mussels and mobility is more important. Need to get back into the gym regularly. The gym isn't boring to me as I work at it some and only spend about 15 minutes a visit. No significant sweating so I'm in and out quickly. They say every other day is best.

The rest is mostly work around the house (built several car ports) and work on the boat. With my arthritis work on the boat frequently isn't good for me. Now if I can get back into the gym and do lunch every day .............

Thanks for this tips.

As far as form, I do think this is part of the problem. I catch myself "plodding"at times and extending my feet too far in front of my body I think. A running coach would probably help.

I run in some Asics shoes. Pretty big looking. Click image for larger version

But they have "Gel Cumulous" and "fluidride"! 😳

To be clear, I'm NOT a runner by nature and don't usually enjoy it, unless the weather is nice and not 100% humidity like it was today. It just seems to be the best exercise I can do in the least amount of time. I hate walking for hours. And when I say "running" I'm really just jogging at a 8-9 min mile pace.

One more tip, Bill. It would probably not be a good idea to parade around in front of Oliver with those shoes.

I've kept the same shape for about the last ten years , 20 lbs overweight .I work for a lumber company and I ride this bike at work . It's the best way to get around here . I work on the boat a bunch and that helps keep my limbered up somewhat , but I hurt like hell when thru with a project . I should walk more .
