    I'd suggest that the advice here:

    is pretty damn good. Worked for me, though i'm now gaining weight due to my better half's inability to cook inedible food, a trick i'd managed to perfect

    Sounds like a quality justification to the Mrs for getting a media-centre!

    I like the plan

    I remeber a while back there was a bit of research done that said if you fidget alot at work it could burn some ridiculous amount of calories.

    Its my excuse for constantly tapping my feet and/or desk!

    Re: Dieting for IT Professionals

    Get a bike and get some tyres that are better suited to road as opposed to mountain bike tyres or you'll soon give up because you'll find it too hard on longer rides.

    I've been taking a house mate, who's after loosing some weight, cycling. Don't chicken out at the steep hills and just try and build up a tolerance to it. I find that it helps keep the gut under control. Of course, mine would be in better control if I wasn't a student and hadn't had both dominos pizza and two curries last week. But....i'm not fat so i must be doing something right.

    Eat sensibly (ie no snacking in between meals and eat proper meals ... maybe a bit of salad) and get some decent exercise.

    I do cycle (I have two bikes) but like everything it's finding the time to do it on a regular basis. Apart from drinking bottles of maple syrup I do eat a pretty balanced diet with very few snacks or treats. The main problem is at work where I tend to spend 5 out of the 7.5 working hours sat down in front of a PC. Perhaps I need to replace my chair with an exercise bike!
