Though, it might prevent you from gaining more weight. If you're not used to exercising, start small with the idea that you'll gradually increase the intensity or duration of the activity. It's a good habit to get into. ...Read more

When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Is there a specific amount of weight loss for running two miles a day for two months?

Depends on your size: The more you weigh, the more calories you burn for each mile of walking or running. You lose 1 lb for every 3500 calories used (and not eaten back). A general rule of thumb is 100-150 calories burned per mile walking (150-200 running). 2 miles daily for 60 days should burn 12000-24000 calories (3.5-7 lbs), as long as you don't make up for the exercise by eating more. ...Read more
