What's the Best Way to Lose Weight Without Doing a Crazy Diet?

Good Questions

Q: Over the last 10 years of cooking, learning and tasting, I have amassed many beautiful recipes — and a few (OK 10, OK, fine, 20!) extra pounds. My love for all things fried, crisped, deviled and mayonnaised has put on a little paunch. I have zero desire to be vegan, raw, cabbage-souped or anything fad.

I could use some tips/tricks for easy weeknight non-fussy meals to put off some of this weight. Also, any advice from people who've lost some weight before would help! I'm cooking for two in a small apartment, and I'm going to be honest. I really don't like leftovers. Any advice would be great!
