By the sound of it mate Jonesy may not be becomming a sailor.

Back to the point.

I suggest perhaps you re-examine your diet if your training hard and still not losing weight. Doing half an hours phys per day and then eating a pie and drinking a can of coke isnt going to sort the problem out.

Perhaps people could give an opinion if you post your weekly training regime and then maybe we could give a few tips in that direction.

Don't worry about gaining muscle, if the doc sees that you have a BMI of 30, but a waist smaller than your bicep then they can let you pass. :p

I used this http://caloriecount.about.com/ to help me lose 2.5 stone.

My fitness schedule was swim 1km each morning weekdays. Football 6 hrs per week. Running 7 miles per week. I was eating around 3500 per day cals during this time, it's important to make sure you only have a deficit of 500 cals per day.

PM me if you want some more advice.

If you take in more than your put out then you'll gain weight.
If you take in less than you put out then you'll lose weight.

Therefore exercise more, eat less - and eat better quality too. Eating healthily isn't rocket science - we all know what is good and what is bad. And lay off the booze.

If you're just running then you are unlikely to put on significant amounts of muscle.

Ditch the car, get a bike.

Before I joined up I had been doing three paper rounds every morning on a battered old bmx, fit? I could've been a fcukin' booty!

On food, most of it is common sense.

Avoid processed foods.

Avoid high fat food eg. hard cheese

Avoid anyhting that could be described as rubbish / junk food (pies, chips, chocolate, sweets, crisps, fizzy pop, also unfortunately beer).

Try not to over eat.

Try to avoid too much carbohydrate, particularly bread but also pasta, rice, potatoes, don't cut them out entirely just cut down and if necessary replace with non starchy veg and lean meat.

Drink plenty of water.

Do lots of cardio, avoid lifting weights for the moment, for muscle do excercises that use your own weight eg. push ups, sit ups, squats, pulls.

Good luck from a reformed fat knacker.

obviously it would be difficult to stop eating practically everything you enjoy. Just cut out the fatty sugary foods etc and eat them in moderation. With regards to running the best advice i could give would be keep running, but include fartlek and interval sessions into your programme, another bit of advice with regards to shedding some weight would be running early in the morning!

Why would you want to go for a run when you can get a taxi, its a lot quicker and easier or invest in one of these

For fat bastards like me

All you got to do is get the tunes banging in the i-pod.
