    Seriously, you need to give more info than that. Also this has been posted before. I would suggest reading more of the archives and elitefts/other fitness websites etc. and come up with a plan and then ask for advice. However, I would assume that if you stopped eating crap (you should know what this is), then most of weight problems are resolved on your own.

    Reduce your daily caloric intake by between 300-500 calories. Buy a large variety of very healthy snacks that you enjoy, and make yourself eat a little bit of something ever hour or two so you're never really "hungry," but your blood sugar remains fairly constant. Cut your meals in half and eat twice as many times. Excercise. Stop eating really shitty food except for one day a week. Intentionally overeat your favorite bad for you foods on this day (candy bars, ice cream, whatever) one day a week, so you're sick of them for the rest of the week. This ensures that your body doesn't go into starvation mode, which is bad.

    And that's about as specific as I can get with your "Tell me how to lose weight . . . ENGAGE!" post.

    Edit: Here's a link to a diet that, if you stick to it, will help you lose a ton of weight quickly without destroying your body:

    Evil Diet Plan. It's not enjoyable, but it'll do the job quick.

    Tell me what you eat and when and we'll talk.
    Do you really want to lose or are we talking about dropping?
    Have you tried an enema?

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    1. Eat less (as has been said). Cut all fats/junk food, as much as you can so avoid having a few drinks and getting that Doner Kebab as you stagger home from the Pub.

    2. Do more cardio. Don't take the bus if you walk. Run up stair cases. Run regularly (vary terrain if need be) for 20mins or more each time. If you're tired from an earlier training run, try Fartlek. You could also use a bicycle if you travel miles but remember to raise the intensity - cadence, gearing - because cycling is a very efficient method of travel and could make you lazy.

    3. This should all work in a reasonably short period of Time. NB, if you start with Weights, you'll **** it all up as you'll start building muscle and this will be signalled by getting hungry so it'll bring you back to your food intake/diet.

    Hope it helps.

    Hey, besides what's been said before, I'd mention drinking a lot of water/tea (no sugar).

    It clears you out and stops you from eating all the time to compensate for your added workout load. Or, at least that helps to curb my hunger.
