Big lesson I have learned: for 50 years I have struggled with compulsive eating and weight problems. All the while I knew that my real desire was to eat healthy and overcome the tendency to eat compulsively. Now I know that I must take responsibility for my actions and that it is possible to eat healthy.

Here are my thoughts and my routine. After having 4 stints for clogged arteries 4 years ago I got much more serious about my exercise routine. I have attempted to do a work out on a daily basis and I probably average 4 days weekly. I alternate between a cardio routine on a recumbent bike at the gym and weights. My routines average about 55 minutes

I found a great workout and Lean eating in the firehouse guide at  

Ok so I wrote the program you can get it here FREE.  I would love to see what people think of it.  I personally lost 8 lbs and dropped 4% bodyfat after completing the 28-day quickstart program.  Give it a try.

I am working on starting a FIrefighter Health 5K run/walk with the American Heart Assn and other organizations. Should be in June. Hopefully at the Meadowlands. Still working on all the details. Let me know if you are interested.

I use P90X.

Crossfit will work you until you drop. It's a great workout...

P90X is a great workout if you have the time to do it. Each video is an hour and sometimes you have to do a 15 min ab workout after an hour long workout. It's intense. I use it as a supplement to my own program and take little bits and pieces of it as I go. The only workouts I still do are the Ab workout which is killer and the yoga which stretches you in ways you didn't think were possible but you feel great afterwards.

P90x is from the same company, just different trainers. It is a free weight routine that is just amped up. If you prefer weight training I've heard it is a good one.
