It indicates words beginning with veg- and having different endings, as in vegan, vegetarian, vegetative.....

It's not a term I had seen before but glorked it to match /^Veg[a-z]*$/ in Perl-speak.

We used to do that, but even 6-inch/15-cm subs are pretty high calorie if you get something that tastes good too. Which brings me to this; are Subway subs labeled as 15-cm and 30-cm in places that aren't the US and those other 2 weird countries?

In any case, I was thinking that "vegX" was referring to some next-generation edgy hipster diet or something...


I'm guessing a more vegetable-oriented diet would be both lower in calories and more healthy?

Oh yes. And you can still enjoy meat, but stick with lower fat and relatively healthier meats like chicken, fish, and other seafood (shrimp, for instance). Beef and pork every now and then is fine too, but moderation is important.

One thing you can do for breakfast that helped me is to get some Yogurt (try Oikos Triple Zero--has 22g of protein in a 1 cup serving with only 8 or 9g sugars) and add some fresh fruit to it. The yogurt is tasty on its own, and you can use whatever fruit is fresh and in season. In addition to providing some good microbes for your gut, the yogurt, with its protein, will make you feel full for a while, so you're less inclined to snack.

Yeah, we eat a lot of red meats... Chicken is great but only my mom likes seafood the only fish that is remotely appealing to me is tuna.

I try to stick light with breakfasts. a couple of scrambled eggs and rice is the most I normally do, and I'll often eat less. Lunch is some type of sandwich and some chips, then a big dinner of what my mom cooks and typically some Caesar salad. I'll ask her to make a bit less than usual from now on, the portions she cooks are really big!

Looking into some sort of fitness regimen to get remotely back in shape. I used to run and row a bit, thinking about just walking an extra couple miles with my dog and maybe some calisthenics that I can do with my dad (pushups and that sort of thing). I just don't enjoy/look forward to exercise, so it's hard for me to stick with it. Any motivation tips?

I would highly recommend finding a local "Hash" (read: "Hash House Harriers", not the drug). See the Wiki for additional details. Their slogan is "A drinking club with a running problem", so you know it's going to be fun. A very welcoming social group, with chapters all over the world; there is almost certainly one near you. And, as an aside, the chicks are *hot*!

I joined the Barbados H3 about fifteen years ago, and by only running once a week I dropped from 84 kg to 66 kg in about a year. I used to wear 34" waist pants; I now comfortably fit in 29" (sorry for the metric / imperial imbalance).

(I also met my long-time girlfriend on a run. There's something quite motivating about watching (from behind) available women run....)

Hmmm, from what I found there's only one in Arkansas, 100 miles away in Little Rock

I'm sure I'll figure out a decent motivation. Maybe I could make the trip to Little Rock part of my workout!
