I work about a five minute walk from my flat
It's quite easy to lose weight very quickly, or even develop muscle tone, but there's no quick fix when it comes to getting fit, i'm afraid.
Probably just a standard mention of the Couch To 5k running plan, though. Even i found that reasonably easy to get into.
Constantly clench and unclench your buttocks while sat at your desk.
Eat some cake. Nobody cares.
thus creating time for getting fit
all the stuff i do is really important tho
...and how much time do you have?
The exercise was nothing more energetic than walking more. Every excuse I would go for a long walk. A pint of milk, a shop 2 miles away. I'd walk to and from work, a long walk in my lunchbreak. There is always time, surely your day can't be completely full from 7am to 11pm?
i think i need to get the spreadsheets out and work it out
Walking is an excellent way to lose weight. Running can be too high intensity meaning you don't draw on fat reserves, but a brisk walk doesn't have that problem. Walk anywhere you can. Get off a stop early. Leave early to go to things so you can walk there instead. If you combine it with general getting-about, it doesn't even take that much time and you're not dependent on showering / locking a bike up etc.
is spent doing cool stuff.
the tears have started
OR YOU MAN OR ARE YOU WORM?!
I hate getting up tho - but it seems like a good place to fit it in
You'll have to deal with some horrendous headaches, initially, but you can be healthy and not eat carbs. Its not a myth..
The weight will drop off you, so you wont need to exercise anywhere near as much.
unless he's so busy he can't find the time to eat, erm, fewer carbs
You can exercise as much as you want - if you're diet is shite, you'll get nowhere.
You don't need carbs if you eat properly.
Most forms of carbs have nothing of any real value for your body. Just energy boosting agents. They're part of the reason that you feel absolutely knackered after eating a big roast meal (aside from the food being broken down). Massive sugar rush in your blood stream, then a low afterwards.
Eat more protein and you feel more awake - have more energy. A few weeks back I basically lived on carbs - felt really tired around lunchtime and around 4/5 o'clock. Don't anymore.
like - how does that actually work?
they've all got carbs in, so ignore everything that I've said.

And that any early onset extra weight loss on a keto regime is just glycogen depletion (i.e. water loss), which can create up to a 13lb bounce back in a healthy male? -rendering it pointless in even the medium term.
So unless you plan to live the rest of your life eating only protein sources (many of which do have a carbohydrate element in most forms you might affordably buy them) - i.e meat, cheese, fish and erm ? then you might as well just be fucking sensible and work to a caloric deficit using a balanced range of nutrient dense food from across the food-groups.
This has little to do with getting fit, but it seems like you might not know what you are talking about.
you just need to get the good kinds and not eat so much of the bad ones.
essentially, what you're saying is you don't need to eat lots of bread, pasta or rice, which is true, but *some* brown bread, wholemeal pasta and potatoes can easliy be part of a very healthy, very balanced diet.
if you take carbs out of your diet completely, your body will break down. i tried it last year, and whilst i accept that part of the reason for that is acclimatising your body to be less reliant on bad carbs, salts, sugars, etc, it's still not healthy.
having said that, some days i eat ten packets of crisps, so take what i'm saying with a pinch of salt.
a low carb diet.
I've heard people advise others to drop all carbs from their diet before and it genuinely is counter-productive, unless you intend on doing it forever - which isn't a good idea anyway. Your body NEEDS carbs. Especially if you're combining the dieting with a fitness regime
you make the time. get up earlier, go to the gym/for a run straight after work, that sort of thing.
no excuses, man
By doing stuff like:
Stairs instead of lift
Lifting your legs up under your desk
Contracting your muscles while at your desk -particularly abs and butt
Drink more water
Go to the toilet on a different floor (and dont take the lift)
Buy some small weights and lift them while your watching tv
Do a plank and a few press ups in bed every night/morning
Lifting your legs up under your desk
I do this too
and raise your legs up to the underside of the desk. Then repeat
tell you what, give it a go son
30 secs of as many push ups as you can do.
30 secs of as many squat-jumps as you can do.
30 secs of as many of those things where you lay on your back and lift your legs up and down again.
Then hold a plank position for 30 seconds.
90 second break and then repeat the process until you've been through it three times.
Takes ten minutes. Three times a week. As it gets easier you can increase the amount of sets and change up/ add exercises to the routine. But I found it challenging just to complete at first.
There is an app called 'You Are Your Own Gym' that has loads of ideas for exercises that take no equipment/ only need a chair to lean on etc.
that sounds pretty good
Very good for increasing your metabolism too, so first thing in the morning and before bed its great for losing weight
For genuinely improving fitness, everyone needs some HIIT.
It's hard work. I'm so unfit.
I'm currently spending about an hour a week in the gym and am in near enough the best shape I ever have been. Proper diet helps too, of course.
Pitting muscle against muscle..?
I would wager you spend a lot of your time doing stuff that is less important than getting fit...
you have 40 minutes chris budget. probs.
WHAT ARE YOU THE WIMP?!
to cut down on belly fat...
Not too difficult to remember: much easier than counting calories or categorising foods by carb/protein etc. I stopped over a year ago, and lost a few pounds through no effort whatsoever. When you consider all the crisps you might eat in a year, and then don't eat them, then that's that much weight you didn't eat. Science.
Cutting one thing right the fuck out isn't too hard, and you do actually feel better for it. It's just harder making up the Boots sandwich meal deal; you have to get a Twix or whatever.
I do eat chips, though, I'm not a monster.
Then I stopped drinking one-litre bottles of banana milk, and that was beneficial too.
