I currently weigh about 250 lbs, and I want to loose 50 lbs by June. Hopefully sooner. I also have MS, so I'm not really sure what would be a good idea for me other than a few hours of cardio a day. Does anyone have any advice on this?

Hi Aladan,
Remember, diet and exercise go hand in hand. By your post it sounds like you want to up your exercise output, but I'm seeing nothing about revamping your caloric intake. Hmmmm.
Advise you to start a food and fitness planner here on WebMd or
Be religious about logging your daily foods. Everything. Right down to the creamer in your coffee, and the oils you use to cook. All of it needs to be added into your daily intake record.
Drink at least 64 oz of water every day.
Do exercise, but remember, don't overbalance the exercise/intake. If you don't take in enough calories but over spend on exercise, you won't lose the weight in a healthy way. Without enough calories for fuel, your body will actually begin to eat it's own organs, taking nutrients from your heart, liver, and brain to support over activity.. as it is, your body will burn muscle before it burns its fat stores. That is a fact.
Try to shoot for the recommendations that your planner gives you for caloric intake and daily exercise output. If you exercise more than recommended. Eat to replace that extra expenditure.
