30 Bananas a Day!

So how much do you guys exercise per day? (to keep from gaining weight)

So how much do you guys exercise?
I swear I have one of the world's slowest metabolisms, yet my appetite is huge for someone so lazy.

I've been vegan for 4 years now, and 2 of those years as HCLF whole foods vegan. But even using the HCLF vegan diet (which is the most-filling diet around), I have such a massive appetite that it's really hard to keep weight down.

I dream of the magical day I can eat until satisfied and not gain any weight.

Anyone else finally find the magical balance between exercise and food quantity?

Stop focusing on food and exercise. Are you satisfied socially, intellectually emotionally....? Do you engaging in life or are you just doing stuff?

So basically your advice is "Give up" on being athletic-looking, instead of skinny fat.

No not at all, eatting whole foods and challenging your body phisicaly are supper important, but they are only a piece of being healthy. From my experience, when other components aren't being fulfilled I can eat and eat and eat and never feel satisfied. In contrast, when I'm excited about life and feel satisfied with my life, I don't need to find fulfillment from eating.
rather than eating until satisfied, try eating when you are hungry and stopping when you are no longer Hungry. Stop looking at excercise as a means of loosing weight, but rather as a way to get stronger, faster and challeng yourself.
I always go hard and push myself when I Excersis. But if I'm overeating because I am staying to find satisfaction, when I am unsatisfide with my life I. Overeat. Then I gain wight. If I am busy, interested in other things besides food, connected with people and challenging myself physically,mentally, socially ,ect.... I am no longer interested in food. I dontcare about eating.
I'm not saying it's easy to figure out, but when things fall into place it is the most amazing joyful feeling. Life feels so easy.
I apologize if I am wrong and you are completely fulfilled in every other area of your life.

I just haven't found that magical balance between how hungry I am and how much I exercise. It's not like I'm getting obese, I seem to stay around BMI 22.0, but I'm definitely skinny fat. The only time I got lower (in body weight and body fat) was thru calorie-restriction and starvation, but we all know that isn't a long-term solution.

I think anyone can be "normal" range BMI (or "acceptable" range bodyfat) if they eat HCLF whole foods, even without exercise. But to get further than that, to push bodyfat lower, that's where there's some sort of balance between hunger (calorie intake) and exercise.

I exercise as much as possible, always doing things I love. Walking/hiking peacefully in a nice place, rock climbing, surfing, snowboarding, running or cycling (when I feel like it), and calisthenics. I feel good doing all of these sports and exercises and find a perfect balance rotating though out them. I can't imagine an inactive life without fitness/sports. 

I weight lifting six days a week, along with cardio before my lifts, also I practice yoga but not as often as I'd like. if you haven't really been physically active in the past and find yourself to be "lazy" then start small go on a 30 minute walk the sun will boost your energy and you will just feel happy after, try doing yoga YouTube is amazing, or try some weights. It is all about that first step of getting off the couch and moving your body, once you do it'll be a snowball effect and you'll start to look forward to your next work out or walk 

I hope this helps
