Definitely. It is simple physics. The reason you put on weight is because you consumed more calories than you burned. Reverse that, and you are guaranteed to lose weight.

You gotta be serious about the calories, or you'll get frustrated because you might not see any results. You can use an app, or just take real good notes about what you eat, and be honest about the portions and the associated calories.

There's a good chance you might be eating 5000 calories a day. You're not going to drop that down to 1000! But you'll obviously need to start cutting that back significantly.

Everyone likes some greasy foods. But if you're really intent on changing your weight for good, you'll understand they'll be the exception, rather than the norm.

Running/swimming is a great way to start. Try to run outside or on a track if possible. You'll do better than than if you just use a treadmill.

You mean you're not going to quit until you "get healthy"? I'm not trying to preach here man. But getting healthy means looking seriously at options to quit. Patch, gum, whatever. There are no 'fit' dudes that smoke, trust me

You might want to invest in a trainer, or even check into getting some direction from a nutritionist. Seems like some gym-rat b#llshit, but it's not. You're gonna need some help (and that is OK!) and that is where you start.
