if you exercise a lot do you feel you deserve a lot of chocolate biscuits?

or do you eat salads and fruit to fit with your healthy regime?

Not biscuits no. Nice bread. And wine.

I eat a fair amount of chocolate and sweets and dried figs and dates before and during excercise, because I need the instant energy boosts.

Chocolate essential.
IMHO I need the energy wink

Chocolate all the way.

Rarely eat biscuits. Wine is my sin.

low calorie diets are for people who don't excercise.

Obviouslyt as well as the sweets and chocolat and wine I eat lots of fruit and veg as well.

I'm a chocolate and biscuits lady. Obviously the calories are fine - they all get burned off and I'm happy with my weight (which is the same age 39 as it was aged 19). but I worry a bit about the cholesterol etc. I also eat butter and not the olive oil or sunflower equivalents. dh and I are the same - we both work from home and after lunch we need a biscuit with our cup of tea. recently we decided to try to cut it down a bit - mainly because it was rubbing off on dds who expected biscuits all the time. I'm just torn. love my biscuits but don't want dh or I to keel over and have a heart attack in 20 years' time...

I go with the theory that I can eat more biscuits because I exercise a lot. I also recognise that I am not the weight I want to be because of the biscuits, and that I would be a lot lighter if I ate salads post-gym rather than hobnobs. But I reckon I'd also be much more miserable. I justify it on the grounds that I'd probably eat biscuits even if I wasn't doing all that exercise - the chances of me going for a purely diet-based weight loss plan is minimal. Or something.

I spent two hours in the gym today and through this afternoon have eaten a whole tub of chocolate cornflake cakes - exercise makes me so hungry! But I'm not overweight, I generally eat pretty healthily and don't drink much these days.

I don't exercise to stay slim, I exercise because I enjoy it and it improves my stamina and strength. But it does mean that I don't have to watch what I eat as much as I think many people do as they get older.
