Nobody is giving you contradictory advice. All the advice so far has been good and basically has 2 components:
1. Get diet in order
. You MUST eat less than you burn. You will not lose weight if you don't run a deficit.
2. Add exercise
. Anything is better than sitting on your ass. Walk, jog, swim, do P90X, whatever. Just move.
You MUST do 1. There's no ways about it. You'll be much better off if you also do 2.
If you can't do these two simple items, then it's back to MC to you where you and your cohorts can argue endlessly about Rubinacci and drape.
