The no-diet plan to get healthier and fit enough to run a marathon.

Numbers don't lie. That clock hanging above the finish line tells you exactly how your race went. Just like the numbers on your bathroom scale tell you precisely where you stand in the battle of the bulge. And no matter what those contrived weight-loss infomercials say, losing weight itself is strictly a numbers game. "It's all about calorie deficits," says Jana Klauer, M.D., a weight-loss expert in private practice and research fellow at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital in New York. That is, burn more calories than you consume, and you will lose weight. More specifically, for every 3,500 calories you burn over and above what you take in, you'll lose 1 pound. All the diet gimmicks in the world won't get you around these hard numerical truths.
