Well it looks like despite what you said in your initial question, people still want to sell you something. Here is the bottom line. You must burn more calories than you consume for weight loss to occur. So you have a constant burn rate called your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) which occurs even when your sleeping, it keeps your body alive. Then anything you do on top of it, walking, talking, or exercise is additional calories burnt. So no matter what every day you must do something, even if it is small likely a quick walk, but preferabbly 20 minutes of cardio (so try an eliptical or stationary bike) 3 times a week. Lifting weights doesnt burn near the calories, thats why people that lift weights can be strong and fat at the same time. People that do cardio regularly will not be fat. Next you must avoid man-made sugars, simple carbs like white crap bread, and fied/fatty foods. This is actually easy if you stick to natural fruits for sugar, vegetables for fiber, and lean meats like chicken and fish for protein. DO NOT EAT FAST FOOD PERIOD or ANY PROTEIN DRINKS/BARS unless you truly no how to read the labels as most of them are also junk. Finely you should not eat three or four time daily, instead you should eat 5-6 times a day, small meals but just more frequantly as this is how your body is most effecient at processing your food. There that is it...the secret that either most dont know or dont want you to know and it doesnt cost anything except commitment on your part. This change is not easy and the more you do it the more it will become second nature. Over Weeks you will slowly loose weight gradualy, the safe and most effectively sustained way :) Good Luck
