    Is there anyway to lose some weight, and tighten up some flabby body and heavy stomach for a somewhat lazy guy?. Quickly get tired and bored of all the hardwork usually needed, and get back to old ways, cos it's always too difficult to go to the gym everyday, or walk around the block when I have a hot ride. I need some advice guys.....any easy way that will be fun will be nice....Wii Sports? more like my thing but still get boring after a while. HELP!!!:eek:

    Welcome to the forum, xtradas!

    If there were an easy way, everyone would be slim and fit!

    To maintain any fitness regime you have to do something you enjoy doing. Anything that you find dull or too much effort will not last long enough to have any effect.

    But the most important thing is to eat right. No amount of exercise will undo bad eating habits.

    So look at your diet and see what you can do to clean it up. You don't have to count calories or anything, just eat whole, natural food - nothing processed, refined or 'man made'!

    There is no easy way. It takes time, dedication and patience. You have to first decide what you really want and then go for it.

    The easiest way i have found is exercising in a swimming pool. If you can swim fine do some of that. But stretching and gentle movement really works. The bonus is that the weight of the water supports your body while you are exercising so there is far less chance of straining yourself, particularly in the beginning

    Totally agree with Derek. Find some type of exercise you enjoy but your diet is more important. Even if you exercise to get a six-pack, it won't show unless you eat well to lose the fat.

    You have to do something you really enjoy, most men love to Boxing, I get clients that generally hate exercise but when it comes to hitting the pads they really go for it! There must be something you enjoy doing which gives a good workout.

    You can go on whatever sports do you really like. Swimming and cycling are also good exercise, it is a full body exercise which helps you to tone your muscles and lose some weight. It is very fun to do especially when you have someone to be with you when you are exercising.

    Its not easy, I just eat child portions. I have lost one stone down from 12stone to 11stone, just by eating less. I think it is the only sure way to lose weight.

    I find it easy - because I only do "exercise" I love. For instance, I play tennis, practice tai chi and play a lot of dodgeball. Find a sport or activity that is enjoyable and the weight will just fall off but you won't even notice how much effort you're putting in because you're having so much fun. :D

    How many calories do you tend to eat a day if you stick to child portions? I quite like the idea of eating child portions as it's always smaller than adult servings.

    Obviously there is no easy way, otherwise we wouldn't have a problem. But the good part is that it's totally worth it.

    It is easier for many people who hate exercise to diet first. Having a smaller, lighter body makes exercise easier. By diet I mean eliminate the cause of your weight gain - are you eating double portions, too many sweets, stress eatiing, etc. That is a lifestyle change. No starvation diets necessary. Keep calories reasonable, i.e. around 1500 if woman or 1800 if a man. Lots of fiber like vegetables is very filling.
