    Dieting for IT Professionals

    I need to lose a stone in weight and keep it off. Any suggestions (liposuction is too expensive, I've checked).

    Near impossible to buy at the moment!

    How about an Easiteach dance mat? http://www.rm.com/Primary/Products/P...?cref=PD827441

    I'm sure it needs testing on a daily basis

    Next time you get a tech call out go for a jog and take the longest route to the classroom. Don't bother wearing a shirt; just wear a tracksuit with sweat bands... It's perfectly normal and no one will give you funny looks... honest.

    I'm in the same boat, the plan is either to start hill walking with an MP3 player or to set up a media centre type-thing in the spare room with one of those home multigyms, bach while benchpressing sounds fun

    I get plenty of exercise; our main building has loads of stairs. The server is on the 2nd floor, the ICT suite on the ground floor and my office on the 1st floor.

    Our site is on quite a steep hill and so moving between our buildings also gives me plenty of exercise! I lose the weight put on during holidays quite quickly once term begins!

    If you're like me and hate the gym/actual excercise but LOVE video games then I recommend you play copious amounts of DDR, the game is addictive and it'll make you shed pounds like nobodies business if you play it often enough.

    If you feel like a prat stomping on arrows then theres always the gym I suppose...

    I found the easiest way was to split up with my partner. After the month of drowning my sorrows in alcohol I have started going to the gym most days to make myself feel better and eating alot less chocolate.

    Bit drastic but the weight is flying off.
