This is the number one thing to bear in mind when starting out. Cos very quickly after you give appropriate exercise a go you start experiencing how much easier it is to eat sensibly too.

It's like your body suddenly starts telling you what to eat in a completely different way to if you've spent years lounging about. Food becomes fuel and fats become an insane prospect, cos your body knows if you try to exercise after fats performance will be compromised.

The biggest hurdle is making exercise become a habit. Once it's a habit it's enjoyable. But until it's a habit you're always faced with the task of overcoming that sluggish feeling that modern life tends to impose on us. The good news is habits can be developed within a matter of days, so you just need to get to the stage where you can exercise four or five days in a row. Once you're there you're away.

I've been having a proper exercise routine for about a month now. About 1 1/2 hours of football/ running each night along with 15 minutes press ups, 15 minutes sit ups and 30 minutes weights and bench presses.

I also went on a 3 hour walk this morning and it all feels great, along with changing my diet and reducing what I eat well the results are showing. I feel brilliant!

Also, ultimate exercise music:

Ditto.
Although it does warn you you've entered the "starvation mode" rather readily

If you dont mind me asking, how much/what did you have?

Its either got to be very calorie rich, or a vast amount.

I haven't had that message yet, I have to really watch what I eat to make sure that I don't go over each day!

I have 600 calories left for a snack and dinner which is doable.

Tesco Finest - Thai Chicken Soup, 600 g - 1 Pot 500
Tesco - Brown Seeded Homebake Baguette, 1 baguette 380
Real Mccoys - Ridge Cut Salt & Malt Vinegar, 50 g Bag 262
Kraft Cadbury - Philadelphia Chocolate Snack, 1 pack 170

Total 1,312


Not my healthiest meal, but I will be having a small dinner, and hopefully go for a bikeride or gym session.

My three things are:

Don't diet. Just eat properly. I'm no expert, but everyone I know that diets, fails in the end whether they realise it or not. They reach their goals sometimes, and just end up piling it back on in record time.

Never, ever, ever, under any circumstances, miss breakfast. (I like to do cardio before breakfast)

Exercise. Both cardio and weight training. I like to joke that there is "No replacement for displacement" and liken us to cars. More power needs more juice. (There is obviously a healthy limit in there though.)

Right then, need to put more holes in my belt. Just gone down to my last one. So far that's 4 holes down in 8 and a bit weeks which works out to pretty much spot on 4" loss.

Having one meal is far worse for losing weight and staying healthy than have more smaller meals spread throughout the day.
