Eat less.

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. (http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2007/04/06/how-to-lose-20-lbs-of-fat-in-30-days-without-doing-any-exercise/) 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?

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.

i eat just about every two hours when i am at work and on the weekends. i try to balance my carbs and consume close to 100 grams of protein a day ( i weigh in at 128). I also keep my cals relatively low because I am out of training due to injuries and cant train like i used to. Cardio is key. I still do weights, though. Using light weights, high reps...but that is just because my sprained wists, rotator cuff and bad knee are severely limiting me. But I also do mainly kettlebell workouts/compound/supersets/ going from one exercise to the next with short rest periods. keeps my heart rate elevated and it's still somewhat of a cardio routine. We'll see how well it works. I'll have to see how much body fat i drop...because to be quite honest...i could care less about my actual weight as long as i am solid and lean...which i'm not at the moment..but i WILL get back there again!!! Stoopid injuries...

YOU CAN ONLY LOSE THE BELLY IF YOU CONSUME LESS CALORIES THAN YOU ARE USING.KEEP A GOOD AMOUNT OF LEAN PROTEIN IN YOUR DIET TO RETAIN MUSCLE MASS.WHEN YOU ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR BODY MAINTAIN YOURSELF BY SLIGHTLY ADJUSTING YOUR CALORIE INTAKE IN REGARD TO WHETHER YOUR LOSING OR GAINING WEIGHT WEEK BY WEEK.KEEP THE CARDIO UP BUT ALSO REMEMBER IT DONT MATTER HOW MUCH CARDIO YOU DO IF YOU EXIST ON CREAM CAKES,CHOCOLATE,AND PIZZAS.GOOD LUCK

Weight lifting can certainly help with weight loss, and more specifically reduction in bodyfat %.
Cutting all fats is not a good idea. Eat healthy fats (i.e. omega-3 rich fat like extra virgin olive oil, the oils in fish and the fat on lean 'game' meats like Venison) rather than unhealthy fats (like industrial-grade vegetable oils, synthetic hydrogenated fats like margerine) and avoid combinations of fat and high-GI carbs like the plague (i.e. white bread and cheese or butter, potato chips, fries, egg-fried rice etc..)

Well, I was being slightly glib. I did Circuits (5 x per week) for 12 years before I was persuaded to undertake a Weight Circuits Class. The sports centre introduced a "machine room" and were trying to inveigle users to drop Circuits, Aerobics to amplify their cash-flow.

For Weights. I still do them up to Thrice weekly. I have more than a passing knowledge.

Running. Still do it but not as much as I would like.

Cycling. Broke my 20+ years (everyday, Winter etc) commuting/touring Claud Butler last year. Replaced with a superb MARIN hybrid, which was stolen from outside the doctor's surgery while I was having my shoulder looked at.

Like I said, I was being glib, as I'm fairly sure you already knew.

go to your local military branch and act like you want to sign up, they'll give you a weight loss plan to get into the right fit bmi (they do the right BMI tests, not the stupid ass weightxheight ****) and just follow that. It worked great for my buddy Paul who went from 220 to 175 in about 3 months
