Drink a lot of water, at least a galon a day, exercise, walk, run, lift weights, whatever you can, and stop EATING GARBAGE.

You are what you eat simply put.

Exactly! Eat whole, natural foods only that your body recognizes as food and can process it properly. Only shop in the outside circle of the grocery store. Fresh fruit and veggies, meat, dairy, bakery. Don't even go down the middle isles.

It's a very simple my friend.
Burn more calories then you consume.
Do not quit smoking cause it will make you gain more wait. Diet is not as important as your eating habits. First eliminate simple sugars right away. And stop eating after 7 pm. You will loose alot of weight without going crazy at the gym. Simple walks will initiate the fat burning process. If you get on shakes and other supplements they are designed to give you added boost for workouts. Therefore stuff you with carbs. Unburned carbs turn into fat. And the circle continues . Good luck. Ps. Do not follow diets in the books and magazines. In order for those to be effective you have to do 45 cardio everyday and a full workout at least 3 times a week. It is possible to loose lots of weight without hitting the gym. Good luck.
Ps. It is very hard to a achieve your 80lbs loss. Make sure you set small goals and do not get discouraged. I have friends that compete and they do cardio for 3 hours a day. Now that's dedication. Good luck

Great advice here...I recently lost 90 lbs and 17% body fat doing a 1000 calorie reduced "way of eating" until I reached my goal weight which was 190 lbs and a body fat % under 20% (I am 6'1). Diets to me sound like its temporary so I wanted to make a life change because for me it was all mental. Now I eat about 1600-2000 healthy calories a day which is a maintenace range, workout 2-3 days a week for 45-60 mins and never drink my calories for the day unless its all protien. I allow a cheat day of eating, even when I was losing weight so I didn't feel too restricted and give up, which most of the time is Sat or Sun and normally its the bad stuff we all love...burgers, fries, pizza, etc. The key is to think long term and life changing and not losing the weight as a short term fix...I keep a picture on my iphone when I was very overweight and look at it when I feel weak or going down the wrong path again. It has been 2 years so the plan is working and I don't plan to buy all new clothes again..lol. Congrats on the 50 lbs and keep going strong! You will be very happy when you reach your goal and feel much better health wise which is the most important benefit!

1) Stop eating sugar filled bread, especially in the evening/dinner hours. Try to significantly reduce glutens as pretty much all humans have a sensitivity to them. That means conventional pastas, many snacks, crackers, etc... Try gluten free alternatives. You'll feel better and your skin will show improvements.

2) Eat more organic vegetables and less meats. If you "must" eat meat, buy organic meats.

3) Portion size. Portion size, portion size.

4) No more beer. If you drink wine, reduce intake, its filled with sugar.

5) Significantly reduce your snacking and when you feel the need to snack, replace with raw veggies and the occasional small "treat" so you don't freak out.

6) Sugar filled soda and other sugary drinks must go or be seriously reduced. If you "must" only drink during morning/afternoon hours and in small amounts.

7) Exercise. Run, cardio, yoga. Something to elevate your heart and make you sweat for 20+ minutes at least 2x per week. Personally I recommend yoga. There's plenty of other benefits aside from weight reduction.

^ agree with all points except the beer/wine one. i'll take the hit. oh, and not a fan of organic (mainly from a cost/benefit perspective).

portion control is key. look at the europeans, they basically eat whatever they want, just less of it.

I just started to eat very lean protien (no sugar or fatty sauces, etc.) and researched what the weight of my cooked food translated into in terms of calories (when info on packages was not available) and kept it at about 1000 a day. Some days I added a fist size of veggies to one meal (mainly lunch). Also lots of water and VW Zero. The funny thing is, after about 1.5 weeks of just protien meals I started to last longer (not as hungry) between meals, so sometimes I had to make myself eat. I researched a lot about how many calories your body needs to live each day (based on activity levels and body type) and to never go below 500 calories a day to avoid your body going into starvation mode. Again, it worked for me so just do what works for you...and I actually enjoy food more now because I focus on what I put in my body and really really look forward to cheat days, but sometimes I save a cheat day when I know holidays/events are coming up....its about balance after you reach your goal. Also, don't forget to check your body fat %...that to me is just as important....some people appear to be skinny...but they are skinny fat (high fat % but low muscle and water weight). A little weight training, lean protien and good fats (omega 3, etc) intake will help with that.

Yes. I can almost crunch my bodyweight (6'1-6'2 @ 180). If you just sit down and start crunching all those articles about it being worthless are correct. Add some quality resistance and build on it and those articles are 100% WRONG. I do maybe 200-400 crunches with resistance 4x a week.

For those that are healthy (and will still be careful) pre workout supplements are amazing and I wish I'd taken them a long time ago as the energy for endurance lifting is amazing. I'm about a year into regular supplement use and its just outstanding.

Don't buy all that starvation mode crap. Even if you ate 500 if you did it long enough the body would start burning away. Flip side I did 500 when I was cutting for lifting and was told NEVER go below 700. I cheat plenty of days but as long as you're back on the program it'll be fine. I'd crush a pizza for my birthday after months of routine and within a week that pizza was nowhere to be found on the scale.

If you guys who are overweight really cleanse your body of the crap thats out there you will honestly get sick if you try and eat it again. If you've got the willpower to really eat good (even throw out meats) for say 2-5 weeks, then go try and have a pizza you'll probably be sick as a dog. I can't even eat a hamburger anymore (7-10 times) without getting ungodly sick.
