Constantly! Especially when in the car so I think it is mostly out of boredom! Solution - don't bring food in the vehicle.

Usually when I feel hungry or at my regular meal times , and of course when I have to plan and shop for meals. My thoughts tend to stray to food when I'm bored, cold or lonely, but that is not very often.

I thought it was less than 80 cm (about 31.5 inches) for women and less than 94 cm (about 37 inches) for men, but since that is not an option I'd pick the closest answer, which is 35 inches or less for women, 40 inches or less for men.

You all are smart (or good at looking it up LOL)

Answer:
The maximum amount of oxygen you can use during exercise
VO2 max is also referred to as "maximal oxygen consumption." It's basically a measure of your capacity to generate the energy required for endurance activities. In general, a higher VO2 Max indicates a higher level of fitness, and you can improve your VO2 Max through fitness training. While VO2 Max can be estimated, the most accurate way to test it is through an all-out effort usually done on a treadmill or bicycle. Because this test is so rigorous it is usually performed under a strict protocol in a professional sports performance lab and is used as a training tool by professional and highly competitive athletes.
