The 28 year-old medical record software specialist from Wilkes Barre-Scranton, Pennsylvania, had put a lot into the relationship, but when it soured he decided to work on himself. He also wanted to improve his hockey stamina.

Grady remembers always being the chubby kid, thanks in part to poor diet. Through high school he was overweight, the target of teasing from other students. After graduating, he dropped 30 pounds, bringing him down to 240. He got a girlfriend, but feeling miserable in the relationship, he turned to food as an escape from his unhappiness. “My early and mid-20's weren't my best times, unfortunately,” he says, and by 24 he weighed 340 pounds.

After all, he did drop more than 100 pounds on his quest to get healthy. But, as a guy who hates dieting and the gym , and has a severe case of dessert Chapman's first step was cutting out all those “cans and cans” of soda he drank, which almost instantly resulted in a 10- pound weight loss.

“I don't think I really understood just how big I was,” he says. He was still playing hockey and golfing with friends, not fully acknowledging his size. “I knew I was overweight, but I didn't take it seriously.

Grady had already stopped drinking soda. “Why drink your calories when you can eat something delicious?” he says. He was about 290 pounds and ready to slim down. He downloaded MyFitnessPal to calculate his daily calorie intake (about 1900, but he’d hit 200-300 less), aiming to lose 2 pounds a week. He tossed out all the sweets and junk food in his house—literally throwing it away.

Revamping his diet was the biggest focus. He drinks mostly coffee and water now. His breakfast might be a Clif bar and coffee, or a ham, egg, and Swiss sandwich on wheat toast. Lunch is a turkey or ham sandwich with a cup of berries. His dinners vary; he tries to leave room for extra calories, and quesadillas have become his go-to meal. He developed a taste for spinach and mushrooms, both filling and high in fibre. He also praises slow-cooking, including health chilli recipes, for helping him meal plan.

a wooden cutting board: 1. Go NutsRegularly eating nuts—and pretty much any kin—may help you live longer, according to several large studies. Most recently, a meta-analysis from Vanderbilt University linked nut consumption (especially peanuts) to a lower mortality risk. And according to a 2013 Harvard study that followed 119,000 doctors and nurses for 30 years, those who ate a handful of nuts every day were 29 percent less likely to succumb to heart disease and 20 percent less apt to die of any cause. More research has linked similar longevity benefits to specific kinds of nuts, such as cashews, pistachios, almonds, or walnuts. Although each varies slightly in exact nutrient makeup, experts say they’re all good bets, so mix it up, and shoot for a handful of nuts a day. (And that’s the size of your palm, not a gigantic fistful. The one caveat to nuts is that it’s easy to down four or five servings, and that high-calorie count may offset the benefits you get from their nutrients.) 2. Dabble in a Semi-Vegetarian DietA wealth of research shows that vegetarians outlive meat-eaters. This added longevity makes perfect sense, given that veggies tend to be low-calorie, low-fat, fiber-rich, and stocked with vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting phytonutrients. But that doesn’t mean you need to give up the occasional steak or barbecued chicken—you just have to cut back on meat. A study of 450,000 people found that semi-vegetarians (those who got 70 percent of their food from plant sources) had a 20 percent lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, compared to those who got less than 45 percent of their calories from plants. Work more veggies into the dishes you already love, such as omelets, homemade pizza, and stir-fry. Aim to keep your meat meals to two or three times a week, and make sure the meat you eat is lean, well-sourced, unprocessed, and not a jumbo portion. 3. Add MushroomsMushrooms are nutritional powerhouses, packed with potassium, riboflavin, niacin, selenium, vitamin D, and fiber. They also contain beta-glucans, a specific type of fiber that tames inflammation and boosts immunity. Because of their nutrient-dense makeup, mushrooms have been shown to help lower cholesterol and ward of infections, illnesses, and even cancer. (Shiitake and a few other mushroom varieties are even being studied as a possible cancer treatment.) As with nuts, different types of mushrooms do vary slightly in nutrient content, but experts say any kind—even those basic white mushrooms—provide health benefits. Eat them on salads, put them in pasta sauces, or use a portabella as a burger substitute. 4. Eat Cruciferous VeggiesYou’re looking for broccoli, cauliflower, kale, arugula, Brussels sprouts, turnips, and radishes—all proven to have several anticancer effects. Along with being solid sources of folate, fiber, and vitamins C, E, and K, cruciferous vegetables also contain glucosinolates. The compounds give these veggies their bitter flavor, and protect cells from free-radical damage and even deactivate other carcinogens. That likely explains why studies have shown that men who eat lots of cruciferous veggies have less risk of prostate and lung cancers.
