So my roommate has his mind set on joining the armed forces this year. He's applied and the next step will be a physical. So he wants to get in shape. We eat a LOT of junk food around here, and he's got a VERY big appetite. He's asked me to help him out - try and get him to eat the healthier choices when we go out, not get fast food AND popcorn when we go out to a movie, and to get him to work out every night. I know I can remind him to work out every night, but the food part will be tricky for me - I'm as much a sucker for the unhealthy stuff as he is!
We're not going to be super anal about this... just try and cut back on the bad stuff and eat more of the good stuff. No hardcore work outs (he lifts weights for awhile at night at that's it), no crazy diets... just simple changes.
But I know it'll still be hard for us.
So does anyone have any pointers? Any ways I can remember to get him to workout, or remember to workout myself? Any healthy recipes that'll still be cheap and taste good? Or how do you overcome choosing the smaller meal instead of the supersized Big Mac meal? I'm lookin' for anything!
