Zawodny’s Cool Diet Tips

I noticed with interest that Jeremy Zawodny of Yahoo! fame has been posting some of his personal dieting tips on his blog. These are really pretty good tips, IMHO, for all of us in the IT industries who work desk jobs and are constantly fighting the “Battle of the Bulge”, as they say.

I find it interesting that I have generally been following most of these guidelines by coincidence, though I’m not nearly so disciplined (nor anal-retentive) enough to be tracking my weight in spreadsheets and such. I don’t even own a scale!

Even if I don’t track measurements, I’ve never fully devolved into lazy habits, and I’ve kept up with moderate exercise and such since high school. Just a couple of weeks ago, my sister and I participated in a charity 5K run for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure near here in Plano, and I’m fairly pleased to’ve clocked in at a respectable 31 minutes.

Jeremy’s dieting tips seem really pretty good to me — I highly recommend them.

    I don’t want to be rude, but 5 kilometres in 31 minutes?! Is that a mistake?

    I’m overweight. I weigh about 200 pounds. However it only takes me 30 minutes to _walk_ that distance. Admittedly, I’m a pretty fast walker (nobody ever overtakes me when I’m walking) but even so, I’d expect someone slimmer than me to be able to run it in a lot less than that!

    Phil, 5k equals approximately 3.1 miles. A slow to average jogging of one mile could generally be done in 10 to 11 minutes.

    Even considerably fast walkers are unlikely to do a mile in 10 minutes.

    Walking a 5k would probably end up taking around 45 minutes.
