They didn't have a lot of fresh food up there, so when they got it, (Book/Jayne) they probably ate it all. Maybe they ate a lot of those bars Cap sold to Patience.

Seems to me the biggest factor in the fabulous physiques of our BDHs is a high protein diet, with fruits and veggies as often as they can lay hands on 'em, and lots of physical activity on and off the ship. Spending days, weeks, etc... confined to Serenity would definitely leave me looking for as many activities as I could find to occupy my mind and body. They also have as much fun as they can while doing it!

Ha ha.. The "companion" workout.. Blushes.

Im sure I could get Mal to go running with me.. :)

Rummaging through garbage land for old emergency vehicle stuff for hours has got to count for something...as does running from Reavers.

Hmm... (Hey I think all the ladies were asked to gain weight, even slender River is MORE slender away from the show.)

Opportunities to stay fit abound on (or near) Serenity:
-Lifting and loading cargo.
-Running away from bad guys.
-"Companion" WORK is probably a workout in itself.
-Running up and down stairs all the time.
-Weight lifting
-Special workouts learned while training for the war could still be used by Mal and Zoe.
-Doesn't J do a bunch of pushups all the time?
-Vigorously cleaning guns
-River's aerobatics around the ship probably burns some calories.
-In port there's lots of walking around.

And I like the ones everyone else has mentioned so far too. :D

she was skinnier for Serenity. and you can tell a bit. 20 pounds on her frame was still totally gorgeous and attractive. and really, my goal is 160, i have NO doubt that by the time i'm at 180, i'll be thrilled and blissful. :P 20 pounds is relative.

One thing I think's interesting is that Jewel Staite - who plays Kaylee - was actually asked to gain 20lbs for Firefly, they wanted someone who looked kinda healthy and wholesome rather than "Hollywood actress super-skinny". For me I can't imagine Jewel Staite any skinnier than she looks in firefly, to me she's just perfectly gorgeous as is.

*runs out to find some bellydance and pilates videos*

i wonder what zoe does to keep her curvey yet tonedness? i just loooove the idea of looking "athletic" but i rather despise most sports! (except for hockey. the reasons for this are numerous and strange...) with zoe, maybe its all that married lovin she does. would explain wash as well, seeing as he just sits around mostly.

Inara definitely has some martial arts skills ... and she is a damn good fencer/sword fighter too, as we learned in "The Shindig." Plus the companions probably have a very disciplined work out schedule, and don't they have to pass a fitness test every year?

Inara definitely does Pilates, Yoga, Tai Ch'i in that shuttle of hers. And I think one episode it's mentioned in passing she's proficient in dance (I picked up on that as I'm a bellydancer myself), so maybe she does some form of slinky, temple-dance stuff.

Running after River's gotta be a big calorie burner for a lot of the crew!

I am waiting for when they can make any food taste like chocolate cake but have the nutritional value and calories of broccoli.

I guess Kaylee keeps fit by always working and fixing equipment and following Simon around- lol :)

same calorie burning cardio exercises i can imagine helping the Mal with, i'm sure...
Inara does know how to use a sword, maybe she fences?

so many of these things seem to require a partner..

I can't imagine Inara on an elliptical machine- I am sure she was a yoga type gal. Although she seems to have some martial arts-type skills in the movie.

River just probably danced and hung from the ceiling a lot.

Now I could think of some fun aerobic activities to do with Jayne emoticon

Well there was a lot of running and gun toting ... that had to count for some calorie burning right?

So i was thinking the other day, ignoring the fact that they were usually too poor to eat, how would our big damn heroes stay slender and fit?
We saw Book and Jayne lifting weights. and we saw a wonderful game of.. whatever that was.. with the hoops and the ball in the cargo area..
was inara one of those impossible women who stayed gorgeous simply by continuing to exist? or did she do yoga or tai chi or something?
so? if you were on Serenity, what sort of exercising would you do? maybe thinking about this will motivate us to think outside the box for some workout ideas. maybe its just my own random silliness :)
