Fat Accountant

As I am getting older I am getting fatter, my clother are becoming very tight and I do not feel good. I want to change all this. I intend to carryon working as an accountant in my 80s not relying on State support!

I want to be heathy. I need to lose 3 stones of excess weight I am carrying around. Excess weight as we all know is the key health risk the west faces.

We all know the risks of being overweight- heart failure, cancer, stroke, diabetes ...

I cycle 8 miles a day 5-6 days a week. Clearly I have put on weight since I eat more than I burn.

How do accountants manage to stay healthy? What advice can you offer? Something that lasts rather than just a fad.

I tried Light Life (starvation) diet about 6 months ago. I lost 2.5  stones and put these back on within just a few months. Waste of my £70 pw.
