I dont exercise - Ive been watching my food intake for the last 2 months - Im in perfect health - no in good physical shape - I dont drink - I do smoke

It does matter, eat breakfast. Considering your last meal might have been 8 or more hours before, you need to feed yourself.

find out what your maintenance calories are...aka how many calories your body uses during the day. since you want to lose weight, i'd say slowly cut down a few hundred calories under the maintenance level and start working out (weight training w/ cardio). weight is all about calories in vs. calories out and going under maintenance will definately get you on the right road for weight lose. also, start eating cleanly. not alot of junk. as i said its all about calories in vs. calories out, so even if you eat a bunch of crap and stay under maintenance, you will still lose weight. however overall health benefits if you eat clean, as in...cut down on trans/saturated fats, sugar, etc. one more thing - when you start a routine, you must have the dicipline to succeed...there is no way you can improve your body that much in say, 10 days like alot of fad diets say. dicipline is number one...diet is number 2, and training is number 3 in my book. good luck! :D
