Need help making changes

I haven't worked out in years. I'm about 5'10, currently weighing at 213 lbs and I want to shed off 30-40 lbs. I can't afford a gym, so that leaves me with pushups, crunches and squats. I can always jog for an hour too.

How many sets/reps would you say is good enough for me to start out with? How long should I keep at it before increasing sets? What are some other ways to build muscle?

I also need suggestions on maintaining my diet. I know it's better to eat several small meals everyday. I'm having a little trouble breaking out of the three big-meal routine; I'm always eating and waiting until the next time I'm hungry. Some examples on what you eat and when would be helpful. Thanks.
