    1. Keep calories down to around 1500 a day.
    2. Stick to real food. Avoid all cereal grains.
    3. Do 2 HIIT sessions a week and 2 sessions of kettlebell swings a week.
    4. Have a breakfast each morning of sausages* and bacon, 2 of each. It will kill cravings for crap food and provide meaningful nutrition.
    5. Basically, it's about keeping actual nutrition high whilst keeping calories down.
    6. Have one day a week where calories are higher, but still with real food. I might have a large mixed grill for dinner one night with a lamp chop, a pork steak, 2 sausages*, half a steak and a large salad on the side.
    7. If having more starch, have less fat and protein. If having more protein, have less fat and starch. If having more fat, have less protein and starch.

    *the sausages I have are Harrogate 97% pork sausages containing only pork shoulder, balsamic vinegar and seasoning, in natual sausage skins

      Eat plants, meats, seafood, as fresh and unprocessed as you can get them. Stay away from the wheat products. Eat sweets in moderation. Do cardio, lift weights.

        You have to have a long term approach for permanent fat loss. There are many methods for losing fat and they all work. But for it to really count, you have to keep it off for life.

        How to do that? Have a realistic weight you want to be at. And every step along the way, check the scale every week. When ever you end up slacking off and gaining a few lbs, catch it before its too late. A 5 lb gain is ok and normal. Any much more than that and you have to start taking big steps for several weeks to drom some more weight again.

        That's the only real way as I see it. If you don't do it and end up eating too much, you could gain 10-20 lbs back in no time, and by that time it is too late. You've already killed all your hard work. So you have to watch your weight.

          I would say to avoid carbs and processed food as much as possible. Having lost a lot of weight almost ten years ago on the South Beach Diet, which was very low carb for me, and recently learning about Eat to Live -all vegetarian, and now Mark's primal/paleo perspective, cutting out carbs, sugar, and processed food is the best strategy I think for losing weight and moving to better health. It has worked for me

            Remove all grains, dairy, sugar, and anything that's processed. Learn to cook. Lift heavy things 2-3 times per week. Sprint once in a while. Walk as much as you can. Get plenty of sleep in a pitch black room. Don't drink your calories. Never snack. Find some way to reduce or eliminate chronic stress.

                  Take a holistic view of what your goals are and how you will achieve them. Don't worry if you slip up, as long as you get back on the horse. Embrace the 80/20 concept. It's a lifestyle change. The weight wasn't put on overnight, and it won't be taken off overnight.

                    Eat paleo and cut your carbs way down, in conjunction with resistance training.

                      Consistency in working out which includes sprinting and heavy weights
                      Get at least 8 hrs of sleep every night if possible.
                      Variety in food/cooking.
                      I weigh myself every couple of weeks and adjust my caloric intake if I'm gaining.

                        Eat less and move more. Remove any food that might make you overeat from your home.
