Styleforum Top Pickspost #84137 of 1090549/17/13 at 4:36pmThere are magazines like Harry Rosen's one for example, where most of the 'ads' are actually their own photo shoots with product they sell at the store. Those pages I enjoy looking at, because at least someone took some effort to style the clothes and go to a location, etc, instead of generic ads that are just there to create a brand impression, now that I resent. What bothers me is that it turns what probably was, or could be, an informative medium into basically a picture flip book for adults where the producers make money by charging customers and by selling ad space instead of making good content people will want to pay for. I don't expect the Economist, but gimme something I can actually read and get something from. TBH, most of what I read and learn from nowadays is SF, and even then, the 'content' is hit and miss.post #84138 of 1090549/17/13 at 7:02pmpost #84139 of 1090549/17/13 at 7:18pmQuote:
that's ridiculous. my body is basically the same now as it was graduating college (~10y ago). vary maybe 5-10 lbs depending on how heavily I'm rowing
far from impossible...but closer to inevitable depending on how active the person in question ispost #84140 of 1090549/17/13 at 7:31pmQuote:
I want one.Quote:
my situation is similar to you (i weigh a few pounds less than I did 10 years ago) so indeed, far from impossible, but most people's bodies do what Fok said.post #84141 of 1090549/17/13 at 7:34pmpost #84142 of 1090549/17/13 at 7:36pmAlmost 30 pounds in 6 months is pretty serious weight gain dude.Quote:

I graduated college in 1997. Ten years after I graduated from college, I was actually at my lowest weight ever, between, 150-155 lbs and 7% bf. No, it's not impossible, but I think that you'll find that you'll have not only just stay active, but monitor your diet more regularly if you are going to keep in shape. And not only that, but nearly everyone I know has equilibrated to a higher natural weight as they grow older, no matter their diet or exercise, or general fitness levels.Quote:
Were you lean then, though? If you've made fairly drastic changes in diet and exercise, and you did not start at optimal fitness levels, they yes, all bets are off, obviously. I'm talking about active people who maintain their activity levels and keep about the same (at least decent) diet. I exercise hard, but I love food, so that's why I am not at an optimal weight. I could easily lose about 10 lbs.Quote:
I remember cutting 15 lbs, shaving my frame down from 160 and bits to the cutoff 145 lbs weight, in about a month. It's a PITA, and you think about food constantly, but it's reasonably safe and doable. On the other hand, I hear about guys who fight at 155 lbs, these days, cutting down from over 190 lbs. It's getting more and more crazy, and I personally think that some measures should be put in place the way they are in boxing, to ensure the safety of athletes. Cutting 30+ lbs in just way too much strain on the body.post #84144 of 1090549/17/13 at 8:40pmQuote:Originally Posted by LA Guy

At 31, I'm the probably the fittest I've ever been and around the lowest weight I've ever been as an adult. But everything you say is true. I used to be able to eat just about whatever I wanted at this activity level, but now just a little bit of straying off my standard diet and I definitely feel it. No more large pizzas by myself on a Sunday while watching football. If I did that these days I'd be sporting a muffin top in short order.post #84145 of 1090549/17/13 at 8:48pmI'm one of those lucky assholes that seems to be able to eat whatever they want and never work out and still stay rail thin. Practically in exactly the same shape at 29 as I was at 18, save for a slight bit of extra arm definition from lifting for a little bit a couple years ago.post #84146 of 1090549/17/13 at 8:51pmQuote:Originally Posted by Noctone

It'll catch up to you eventually. I didn't notice much of a change in my metabolism until this last year or two. You might be able to fight it off a bit longer than most, but it all ends the same way.post #84147 of 1090549/17/13 at 9:08pmIt's worth noting that one's exercise of choice makes a big difference. Serious endurance athletes--runners, cyclists, soccer players, etc--who start those sports in their 20s or teens and continue almost always stay leaner longer assuming they maintain at least a certain of level of that activity and don't just let their diet go to shit.
I'm 41, 6'3"/175 and have been a serious cyclist since I was 19 or so. I've literally not varied my weight more than about 10 lbs in either direction for nearly 20 years. I eat healthy but I love food (worked in restaurants and wine for years) and don't obsess over my food at all. I dont go to the gym these days but have off and on over the years. Mostly for core strength stuff.
At my fittest when i raced for real I was ~167 lbs and that took a lot of food attention. At my heaviest when I lived in NYC and took 18 months "off" of riding (minimal but not none, and no racing) I was 183-5. It felt odd, but more than one person told me they thought it was good if gained some weight. Now I just eat what I want and ride as I can (having a 3-yr old hinders that a bit). I'm sure my metabolism plays into this to some degree.post #84148 of 1090549/17/13 at 9:09pm
Listen to LAGuy and Fuuma, all you young dudes. I'm 41, and even though I'm a club-level triathlete and runner, train hard and eat a very modest diet, if I am out injured for even a month, the weight starts piling on my quicker than it ever did and getting it back off is harder every year. This really started to be noticeable around 35 or 36. Before that, I was just like all of you saying they didn't gain weight ever. I was just out of 6 months from July last year and I'm still not back at what I'd consider a high race weight yet. I know one or two skinny-as-a-rail hardcore endurance runners who are as light in their 50s as they've ever been, but they are very unusual in the general population.post #84149 of 1090549/17/13 at 9:13pm
