    Double-breasted that is. Just wanted to make sure everyone was in the loop.

    You're so skinny that most jackets will be double-breasted on you! (envious!) :p

    These days I gotta WORK at it though! Lol.

    I miss the days of pasta for “dinner” and then donuts at 3am after the gig and STILL somehow being thin!

    I was slim until I started traveling for a living and it only gets harder to stay in shape the older you get but it is so much more important to stay on top of it.

    Looking sharp Tony. How many hours a week you spend in the gym or working out?

    I don’t really follow a routine or a schedule. My wife and I walk quite a bit, and I keep the weights close by at home so I can grab em whenever. Lotsa push ups too. I only eat two meals a day(I don’t eat past 8pm, and lunch is my first meal), and try to watch what I eat. Life is all about balance.

    My recipe to slimmering is annoyance. I usually lose weight when there is sorrow and trouble around me. Lost 20 kg that way and still got a too-big belly.

    I was doing keto but have found intermittent fasting tasting to work as well just not as quick when I have carbs in the mix.

    I used to be skinny---had a 32 inch waist until I started having to use steroids for COPD. I could also blame Mrs. Slim's cooking.
    Maybe I should change my moniker...

    Good for you, Tony! Enjoy the thin while you can!

    Diet is about balance, I agree. For example, after a bag of salty potato chips I like to counter that salt with a bag of candy loaded with sugar.


    I am of course kidding.

    I don't know. I've always liked the look of double breasted suits, but I almost never button my coat, and don't care for the way they hang unbottoned.

    I must admit to having a 5lb bag of Sour Patch Kids hidden in the pantry.
