    Going to a gym or sitting on an exercise machine is one of the most boring things I can imagine.

    Much prefer to eat right and keep physically active. Both are easy enough to do and though I found it hard to eat well for cheap in the US it is far cheaper than eating junk here.

    Exercising and dieting is enough to stay skinny/healthy but if you want to build muscle you have to use weight resistance. My goal is to gain muscle mass since I am a skinny guy so my dieting pretty much consists of eating 4,500 calories a day and pretty much stuffing food down until i feel like I am going to throw up.

    Dieting is a hobby?
    That's kinda sad.

    I practice different martial arts for fun. Nothing specific. I just like to learn different moves that various martial arts use. Most of my exercise comes from my punching bag. I'm not overly concerned with staying super fit or getting jacked.

    If you are already skinny then yes it is a hobby lol because there is no particular use for gaining weight since I am already skinny besides vanity. I am really trying to get jacked.

    I don't lift or diet. I'm below average weight, anyway (for my age). I have tried to get into it, but it's just not my thing. I do enjoy running though

    ATM I'm in Insanity and running, lifting seems like one of the most boring things in the world, and there's a lot of other ways to build up muscle without those kind of exercises.

    Between insane and insecure
    I don't lift or diet because I don't find either of them enjoyable and I find wasting my time doing another boring task to be a waste of my time. Plus I have an immune system disorder where my immune system attacked my nerves, so adding anymore unneeded stress to my arms and back is just out of the question.
    I am also allergic to meat, so I can't even eat that. So I stuck on a vegetarian diet, why hinder my diet more?
    Basically, adding something like more lifting and dieting just isn't going to help me, isn't fun for me, and isn't worth my time.

    I'm too lazy to train. I eat decently though.

    Anyway, I'm always running at work (literally), so I'm in an average good shape physically :P
