Everyday Systems: Systematic Moderation for sustainable good habits

I have gone through the same not so long ago, and I can relate to your problem because weight loss is not an easy task, exercise and work outs do give results but it requires a lot of time and patience. If you want quick results without any kind of side effects, you might want to try the Access Bars from Melaleuca. They are scientifically proven to burn your body fat, helping you to lose that weight quickly. More details here in my signature given below:

Cut out bread, pasta, rice, noodles, cakes, sugar etc. and replace with more veggies.
It is really good for what you need.
Once you have lost the weight, you have to go back to a balanced diet though, as it isn't healthy long term.

^I don't really recommend the Atkins, although an increase in your protein ratio will help you lose weight. Eat less carbs, and more protein, fruit and veggies. Do cardio that raises your heartrate for at least thirty minutes building up to an hour per day. Do cardio and weights to build muscle tone. Combining both will help you lose weight faster. The afterburn of working out will increase the calories you burn, even at rest. Consistency is important, trust me on that one. It is a decent amount of weight you want to lose in that time frame. You may lose less or more depending on how big you are to start with. Good luck! p.s - drink lots of water.
Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.
^ Yes, some good sense there.
All it really takes is determination and hard work. Reduce the amount of fattening food you consume...eat mostly vegetables and fruits (with a lot of protein - fish, tofu, chicken BREASTS...mmm...).
Try to start out with cardio and work your way up to weight training. I suggest doing your cardio on an exercise bike (low impact). Train for at least 30 minutes. Do that for about a week or 10 days. After that, you could up the time to 40 minutes and train twice a day instead of once (that's two sessions of 40 minutes). Keep doing that for another couple of weeks. After that, introduce some weights and start doing push ups and sit ups. Continue exercising like this and eating right for the next 3 months and you will lose at least 8kgs. Remember to drink lots of water.
Finally, it's not always the weight that is the most important. Look at yourself in the mirror. Do you like what you see? Can you fit into the clothes you want to wear? If yes, then you have achieved your goal.
Good luck..I just finished a six week holiday and will be getting back to my workout regime. Gained about 8.5kgs...will easily lose that in the next 3 months. I'll post back to update on my progress...
I forgot to mention that setting a goal is very helpful. For example, if you are going travelling during the summer months...you could set a weight and fitness goal...that way you'll be able to take your shirt off and not worry about man breasts...
I don't know one diet from another, but I do know that Coke and other soft drinks contain just heaps of sugar. Same goes for ice cream. Since ice cream is a frozen confection, it must contain lots and lots of sugar for the sweet flavor to be tasted. This is my roundabout way of suggesting you stop drinking soda and eating ice cream if you do so.
The Atkins Diet; full stop.
I have been eating low carb since about late 2002. I lost 40 pounds within a few months and have kept it off.
And without exercise more strenuous than frequent walks; sometimes short, sometimes long.
And when I booze, I try to stick to the clear hard stuff (gins, soju, etc).
It's 2:30am where I'm at and I just drank about 750 ml in Coke Zero and washed it down with 2 eggs, cooked in loads of butter, a half-tin of Spam, and a giant wedge of cheese...and I'll still be fit as fuck in the morning. And thereafter.
Because anyone who preaches that low-carb earing is "not good for you" longterm is talking out of their ass; most carbs are shit. They are just loaded with sugars, which fuck with your insulin levels, etc, etc. How could one not be healthier omitting most carbs, and to almost the greatest degree possible?
And I look younger now at 36 than I did at 28, roughly the age I started eating low carb...
Give it a try...just read the book cover to cover first.
Healing circle around 8' ish?
