    A great substitute for exercise is eating.

    I think that if you eat celery, you can actually expend more calories than you consume, depending on how thoroughly you chew before swallowing.

    I eat water. It sounds unreal, but there are actually no calories in it.

    Ditto, though these days, I find that I can really only do hard 5 days, and need at least full 1 rest day.

    This. You don't need a stinkin' gym membership. Plus, it works in even the smallest of abodes.

    Of course, there is also the risk of outgrowing your clothes due to muscle mass. Bet OP didn't think of this.

    Get a full-body chlorophyll tattoo, then your body can generate food through photosynthesis.

    So, here we go again... NOT ALL OF US ARE BLESSED YOU KNOW! Some of us were born with poor genetics, bad looks and an excess of body fat. In the UK, every street corner has a coffee shop selling mocha flake with whipped cream and marshmallows. In London, lunch can only be satisfied by hamburgers, chips etc. Trying to eat anything else is almost impossible. I challenge you to walk down Bond Street and NOT consume a nibble or two (or three) of luxury Belgian chocolate. I was tempted by such confectionery displays today: the shop on the corner of Burlington Arcade, one by the top of Bond Street and the one up that diagonal street, just off Brook Street.

    As for the gym, it's at least a mile to drive there (even if you could park), but obviously too far to walk.

    So, we cover the scaffolding with tarpaulin and hope for the best :(

    I totally agree with this. I do have a gym membership, in fact, 2 of them, but I've found I can get a similar work-out with:

    1. Home: TRX with a weight vest, Free dumbbells, push-ups, and pull-ups
    2. Cardio: Swimming laps, Rock-climbing, Running at the beach (the sand is a killer)

    At the gym, I usually end up doing set lifts but the gym is a lot more boring and I think periods where I do #1 and #2 frequently, I'm in better shape than when I hit the gym regularly.

    Especially when your tummy makes you stop at every corner for a snack.

    But here's the rub: they all employ beautiful young Russian girls. I feel as if I'm being pulled onto the rocks and force fed chocolate. No man can resist their siren call.

    I think the OP makes a valid point. Your fitness level puts a sort of upper limit on how good you can look in clothes, and what you wear defines how close you you come to approaching the limit.

    Before the cruelness starts, I'd like to remind you that some women prefer meat on the bones and sizable buttocks. They find a flat behind unappealing. As it is, I've always considered myself to be gravitationally stable. The excess folds on the front, are naturally counterbalanced by what's carried on the rear. One without the other makes no sense at all, as I'd probably fall over. Nature, as always, has its own way of keeping things in check. Skinny is NOT always best you know.
