You HAVE to burn more calories than you take in to lose weight. For most people that is almost impossible to do. I know, I tried. Then I took up jogging. I met lots of new friends and my weight went down. If you are drastically overweight you may check with your doctor first for approval. Here is a site that is great for joggers with lots of good information. You can even do it with a jogging stroller or with kids old enough to jog with you. They will learn young the importance of a healthy body.

Good guidelines for healthy eating for the whole family are available from Bright Futures in Practice: Nutrition Pocket Guide at the HRSA website. You can find it by searching by title at the "search publication" tab.
