Gus, you gave 5 stars to a moron. The average male who eats 2,500 calories per day is either obese or a laborer, not a desk jockey. To lose weight, you have to eat less. The treadmill is good, although walking/running outside is better as it is free, and you get fresh air and time to clear your head. If you're eating that 2,500 calories, dude, you are eating too much to lose weight. Cut back to 2,000 for a week and see if I am right.
