I'll attest that even losing 10 pounds can make a big difference in fitness and legs, especially late in the game. Granted I could lose 20-25 pounds but I play a lot better at 175 than I do at 185.
Just read the doctor thing, I don't know if they're too polite but usually so long as I don't smoke they don't care what I do. At 5'8 180 they should probably tell me to lose 20 pounds so I'm not complaining about being tired or having poor circulation or coughing during/after hockey games, but instead they want to give me pills. Yet when I am working out and eating right and closer to 170, those problems "magically" go away.
good points, and some of the things you mentioned are things i should have mentioned when i started this thread. No, i do not drink often at all, i might have a drink once or twice a month at the most. I do not smoke at all, and no i don't get up frequently at night. sometimes i have a tough time falling asleep at first, but once i fall asleep i'm usually out for the night till morning. again, it all seems to be coming back to nutrition. like i mentioned, i am not badly out of shape by any means, but i could certainly eat a bit better and lose a few pounds.
