Can I get some help with translating this into French?

For my French II class we have to make up a two person script about someone going in and talking to a fitness specialist about how to lose weight. I am having trouble translating my script. I was wondering, for anyone who speaks French, can you help me translate what's left that I need and is it possible for someone to check what I have done and tell me if it is correct?

Please don't tell me to use an online translator, according to my teacher they're usually very inaccurate.

Here's what I need translated:

"What are your overall fitness goals?"

"You need to work on your diet. Try to eat foods that are healthier. You also need to exercise more."

"You should spend more time outside. Go fishing, or go to the country side. You should go on a walk for at least thirty minutes a day. Gradually get that up to 90 minutes a day. You can also jog, roller skate, or jump rope for a good work out."

"There's no way to lose weight without exercising or changing my diet?"

"No, sorry. You have to really work. You should also work on your flexibility. Stretch your hands over your head, touch your toes, bend and straighten your knees."

"How do I know what to avoid when I am eating?"

"You should visit a nutritionist. And remember, you should always visit with your primary care doctor before starting any exercise program. They can refer you to a nutritionist, who can help you improve your diet."

And here's what I translated myself (T is the trainer and C is the customer)

T: Bonjour

C: Je voudrais consult physique.

T: Bien sur. S’asseoir, s’il vous plait. Puis-je poser quelques questions?

Pour le dejeuner, je mange habituellement un steak et un pot roast. Je voudrais egalement profiter d’un isolement <<Hot Pocket>> a l’aube.

C: Au revoir.

Would they use the formal 'vous' as apposed to 'tu/toi'? I used vous because they are strangers, but I read somewhere that with younger strangers it isn't wrong to use the tu form?
