Ted was a gifted runner. He was not just a jogger. He would finish in the top 500 runners of running events where there were upward of 25,000 runners.

There are a lot of rules for losing fat. One of those rules often mentioned is to eat small frequent meals throughout the day, as many as five or six small meals. I have been able to lose the last ten pounds I needed to lose following the six meal-a-day regime. Under such a regime there is a tendency to munch of snack foods that might not be best.
