We spend too much time sitting down in all sorts of ackward positions while facing the monitor This is causing a lot of physical ailments such as arthritis,cracking necks,fingers, eye sight problems
marital and family and social problems such as isolation.Let us hear from the experts such as physiotherapists, diet experts, dieticiens etc what their recomendations are to keep us "top guns".Links to recommended sites would be very usefull.

Ha...at 54 tomorrow...my blood pressure is 104/64...my cholesterol is 120 on average...never higher than 130 in the past year and I'm 10 lbs underweight.

I attribute this to never leaving the computer to eat,drink,smoke or take recreational drugs.

I never get colds..I'm thinking the monitor radiation kills all germs.

Well, my 2 cents contribution:
At 51 spending hours and hours every day on this louzy sim I´ve found the need to do some walks, streches to keep minimum fit to face air fighting added to what italians for centuries suggested for a men healthy life: Mangiare, dormire e chiavare ( eat, sleep & f*** ) !
Best,

Eat plenty of red meat (preferably grilled to carcinagenic perfection over open flame), fresh vegetables, and Coke or water. Coffee hagen-daz with chocolate syrup at least once every two weeks. No elevators. Have sex as often as possible and run at least 20 minutes 3 times a week.

I haven't gone up an inch in my clothes sizes or had my BP more than 120/70 (and that's when excercising or stressed) in years and I have a "stressful" job and raise 3 girls!

The only approach to true "fitness", not cosmetics and all the hoopla you get at commercial gyms nowdays.

My metabolism is like a furnace. I can eat pints of Blue Bell and Ben and Jerrys with no weight gain, though I do prefer nuts and fruits and cereals as they are just great tasting to me.

Eye strain is more my concern. A couple months back I pushed my LCD monitor back farther on the table. I'm sitting about 24 inches away from my 17" screen now, feels better.

I exercise every day cos of this, although lately more work is keeping me fit.

Anyway, have you discovered that your fitness effects your performance online in IL2? I used to notice that if I exercised a bit before going online I would be always more alert (and therefore getting more kills), than if I was sitting there like a slob doing very little for the body at all!

Exercise! It`ll improve your kill ratio! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

cool pics, thanks for sharing


on the fitness side and this sim I can share some personal experience.

Well I use to do this sim all the time, work the rest of the time, and not enough time with the family. I was overweight, ate poorly, too much coffee, cigars, beer, etcc


Last fall I joined a gym and starting rowing on a concept2 rowing machine on a regular basis. I cut my food intake very hard, switched to tea, little cigars but still some beer and I still sim but I admit allot less.

Too tired from rowing now to sim much but still I do feel great. Rowing 5 days a week now. When I do sim I think I enjoy it more now.

Trying to work hard on my rowing times to compete this spring and get better on 5k times. Allot of the Brit rowers set the bar high, and also when it comes to flying in this sim.

The Brits were onto this a long time before we were in the States. As a matter of fact, they weren't calling it "The Atkins Diet", they were calling it "Eating Right". High carb/lowfat meals are what is recomended by the USDA "Food Pyramid", which most farmers can tell you is exactly the diet that they use to fatten cows and pigs for slaughter.

I really envy them people who can eat all they want and gain NOTHING.

My metabolic system is so slow, I'm thinking about having a checkup to see if there isn't anything wrong with my stumach or something because just for example, me and my mother we eat the same food, now if we eat at 18.00 and she has problems of going to the toilet much at 20.00 I'll have the same problems at say 15.00 hours the day after and I don't think thats healthy at all.

Bonus is I can actually skip a meal a day but my mother won't let me, she thinks it'll be bad for my health....

So I ENVY, really,really ENVY them people who have metabolic systems running on nuclear fuel....

Actually I started the whole IL2 stuff when I got so much work to do I cannot call me friends to play football daily.

But the game isn`t even the 3rd grade reason why I put up 5kilos sitting all the time studying or gaming.

Lately I lost 12kg and still losing it thanks to some pointers I made up for my diet.


1.No eating after 6 o clock even if I didn`t eat anything through a whole day.
2.Max 800kcal per day.
3.Lots of vegetables and fruit(got salad?).
4.Water/tea/light drinks(no cola - 48kcal per 100ml!)

I`d like to work out or play football but I really have no time for this.

I think because of new dots I will need glasses in early future.

Actually atkins has been around for about 30 years. It is only in the last 2 years that everyone here has jumped on the bandwagon. I think atkins takes the low carb to extremes, but its basic message of how bad sugar and refined flour are should definitely be taken to heart. The whole low fat/ high carb trend that started in the eighties (encouraged by the government noless) has destroyed our collective waistline.

I think that you are "spot on" there. Yes, I agree that Atkins is extreme, but if you follow the diet exactly, it can be very safe. The problem is, that nobody wants to do that. It requires you to replace the missing ingredients in your diet with supplements.

I personally have lost 60lbs in one year by simply avoiding sugars. I allow myself to have a small treat once a week, though. I eat alot of salads, ignore the "don't eat fat meat" warnings, and try to get some exercise. It's hard to beat a half hour a day of situps, pushups, leg lifts, and curls.

800 kalories a day is way too close to the limit,if your health is perfect fine but you lost 12 kg so watch it,1500 kalories is fine and you will still loose wait.Multiply your height by 30 and you have your maximum intake kalories per day when not on a diet.
