    I know what I would do if I was in your shoes.

    #1 I would start walking each and every day. Whatever it takes, just do it. 5, minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, you gotta pay some dues -- check with your doc first of course.

    #2 I would get hardcore and go on Dr. Joel Fuhrman's "Eat to Live" diet for at least 90 days.

    #3 During that ninety days I would investigate the DASH diet for long term health. Google it.

    Good luck.
