    Getting Fit
    I'm 35, male and 5'10. 3 years ago I has a 33 inch waist and weighed 170 lbs. I'm now about 194 lbs, and my waist has expanded to over 38 inches. I have a belly (my midsection really bulges out - all fat) and I'm getting a fair amount of fat around my chest. I don't mind being a little overweight, but I want to lose the excess fat - I've tried moderate exercising and healthy eating, but I'm not losing any weight at all. Any ideas?

    You need to start counting your calories accurately.  If your know how many calories that you are eating per day then you can reduce your intake and increase your exercise slightly and you will lose weight.  It is just a matter of physics.  There are 3500 calories in a pound of fat.  SO if your are eating 2000 calories per day and you are your weight is stable then you can lose a pound per week by cutting back to 1500 calories per day.

    If you exercise then you can lose weight even more quickly.

    So start counting those calories!
