I am a firm believer that "diets" don't work. Oh they might for the short term, but then they don't and you are worse off than before. On the food side, my opinion is that it takes a lifestyle change. Start eating real food, not processed crap. On the exercise side, I am no where close to an expert, but after almost a year of working out( with a time out of a few months when I fell off the wagon) I can say it has made me feel a lot better. I just started doing Amanda Russell workouts. You can find her on YouTube. Most of the time I go to the gym. Read through these forums. There are a lot of smart and inspirational people here. Stick with it, you can do it!
