Eat less & exercise: Fastest is not the best! it's best to make permanent changes for slow & steady weight loss over years. I like dr. Furhman's diet: www.Drfuhrman.Com/library/foodpyramid.Aspx dr. Weil has useful info: www.Huffingtonpost.Com/andrew-weil-md/carbohydrates-weight-loss_b_1937312.Html- see his "discuss that" link in his article.Exercise helps- take brisk walks for at least 30 min. 3-4x/week. Good luck!

"Dieting" in the sense of a crash temporary diet DOES NOT WORK- people almost always regain the lost weight rapidly after ending their diet. That is why long-term diet changes that you can maintain for years works best. Dr. Fuhrman's Eat To Live diet is not only great for weight loss but excellent for overall health and one that can be maintained. The challenge for you is that if your job as a truck driver keeps you on the road it will be tricky, as it is hard to eat this way at fast-food places and truck stops. So it will take some extra effort and planning, but it can be done!

To Lose Weight...: To lose weight you have to change your life. You are setting yourself up for absolute failure if you think you cannot exercise. If you want to save your life and lose weight in any valid manner you have to move on a regular basis along with changing the way you eat and what you eat.
