You should seriously consider getting off the fast foods and, especially, sugar and anything made with it. Also avoid artificial sweeteners. You can find a great deal of information on my web site. In particular, read the article on Things to Avoid and Things to Emphasize as well as the article on Food Additives and Artificial Sweeteners. Juicing, especially vegetable juices, and sprouting would be extremely beneficial dietary additions. Pay particular attention to the three "good" fats mentioned in the Things to Emphasize section.
Your best forms of exercise at this time would be water aerobics, Tai Chi, Yoga, and walking. Any or all of these should be done well within your comfortable tolerance levels.

Best of Health,
