My name is Randy and I am a Food Addict. Some people eat to live; I live to eat. I'll be 50 years old in June and have a pretty sedentary life. Mostly sit in front of a computer all day at work. I quit smoking 8 years ago and gained about 20 pounds, but after that my weight stayed pretty steady until about 2 years ago and I balloned up to about 230 pounds, a gain of about 22 pounds. I'd like to get down to about 190 and become more active. Wish me luck.

National Chain Restaurants
Ruby Tuesday has a decent salad bar. Also, They have a couple of fish dishes and some good vegetable choices as side items.

Red Lobster is a good choice for broiled/grilled fish.

A tablespoon of Chia seeds in some Chobani yogurt is pretty good.

A 100 calorie pack of Emerald Natural Almonds in your salad will give you 4g of protein.

I can pretty much echo a mixture of what everyone else has said. I like to break up my exercise into several small chunks throughout the day.

I get up in the morning and do 10 mionutes on the exercise bike and 20 minutes on the treadmill. I have an elliptical at work and I try to do 10 minutes at least twice a day. I also try to walk up one of our structures here(30+ flights of stairs; about 400 steps) at least once a day.

In the evening I try to do 10 more minutes on the bike and 20 more on the treadmill.

I also make sure I'm got my iPod or the TV going as it seems to help me keep my mind off what my body is going through while I'm exercising!
