I assume that my genes think that by now I ought to be fully infested with a bunch of tapeworms and
such things, which doesn't seem to be the case for me.

I once read of somebody who was selling slimming pills that contained tapeworm eggs. They were the
only slimming pills that have ever worked, but they made him take the pills off the market.

HFBV?[1] An excellent but unconvincing excuse. I was 15 stone and a 40" waist; I went to a gym for a
paltry hour or so a day seven days a week for three months, at the end of which I was 13 stone and a
32" waist. I now maintain that by cycling. Whatever your genetic makeup, if you exercise well and
eat sensibly you'll not get fat.

Talking of makeup, why have Clonaid hired Arabella Weir in her "no offence" persona to be their
spokesloony?

[1] Human Fat ******* Virus - OK I made that up :)

No, it suggested *some* of us tubbies may have been infected with a virus. It said *some* obesity
may be as a result of Ad-36 infection. It certainly didn't use it as an "excuse" for all obseity. To
me, there was enough of a case to warrant further research. :)

No more than suggesting there's something wrong with *everyone* - we all have different "defects" in
our DNA, to a greater or lesser extent, for example.

Huh.

If you're rude about a coloured skin, you're considered highly offensive. If you're rude about
baldies, it's in bad taste.

So how come you can be rude about us paunchies?

Because your paunch says "gross moral defect" to all observers. (Mine says "bonhomie, relaxation,
and good company".) (1)

We could both do something about our paunches, but we don't. Moral defects may originate in your
genes, but they still mark you out for the hatred and contempt of all right-thinking people.

ROTFL;-)

Speak for yourself. I nurture mine, and it repays me by growing ever more ample as the years go by.
Bit of good natural insulation saves me being tempted to use heating, too.

There are also clear advantages on the bent. The rounded shape must aid aerodynamics.

No. No! NO!

I am well, I am healthy. The voices are good! They are good voices! They tell me good things. If
only I c'd twunderstand them! Who are they? Why do they tell me to eat chocolate? Are they my leg
muscles? Or do they come from my paunch? Or from the Dark Side? I am sane. And happy. My old MTB is
not calling me! Nor rusting to death, in tears. The lambs, the little lambs - so sweet, so juicy, so
tender. Chocolate, roasted chocolate. Coffee. Dunnykindiving is fun well seasoned. Ample... Oh God
I've said it, I've said it, it's banned, I'm damned uuurgh splash...

(much better now)

thank you

I stand corrected (NO not orthopaedic shoes!!). Yes, it may well warrant further research but the
standard equation of food in - work out must equal change in weight whether you have or have had a
virus or have specific genes or not. The laws of physics rule supreme. There are NO exceptions.

Eat less, exercise more must result in reduced weight.

Surely this is only as long as we *totally understand* all possible inputs/outputs/variations, i.e.
is our view of reality the only and correct one ??...not if the h*lm*ts threads are anything to go
by ;-) Dave.

Actually not. Exercise may decrease fat and make you slimmer but it also creates more muscle and
muscle is much more dense than fat. So you can actually eat less, exercise more, become slimmer and
gain weight.

However I have long ago accepted the advice of a medical friend who reckons I've reached the age
where my broad mind and narrow waist swap places.
