Diet: All the diets in the world will not work without motivation. Suggest you start by eating three meals a day and leaving the table satisfied but not feeling stuffed. Totally eliminate snacks and sugar containing soft drinks. Begin a regular exercise program and have patience. This may take time to work. It is simple arithmetic. If you take in less than you are expending you will lose weight. ...Read more

You'll feel better. ...Read more
