    Eat less. Do more. Read the stickies, they will answer all questions you might have.


    Keep your shopping cart on the outside of the supermarket, try to avoid aisles.

    Do cardio... run, elliptical, sprints, etc 4x a week. Eat less then you eating now and when you look at the plate, the majority of it should be lean protein.
