Default 101 things to do besides EAT...

How about coming up with 101 things to do instead of EATING? Is part of weight gain, especially in the winter when days are short because of boredom?

I'll start with 1 then as you post put 2, 3, 4, etc until 101?

1 - Learn to play the guitar I just bought instead of EATING!

20: Exercise!

This is a great one because you can't really eat a big meal and then immediately hop on the treadmill. Nope, you have to stop eating 30 min to an hour before you exercise, then you don't eat the entire time you are exercising, then there's stretching afterwards, and if the gym has a sauna, well, you gotta sit in the sauna for a little while... If I really stretch it, exercising can account for a full three or four hours in which I am not eating!

And, as a bonus, I'm burning off the calories I consumed when I wasn't exercising!
