Use more fuel than you put in.

Extremely simple, run a calorie deficit diet. Exercise will help but 80% of weight loss is what you eat.

@KiwiBird true ...i read it takes something like 80 minutes of a reasonably hard workout to counter act one big Mac...

@ozgirl512 Alternatively 140 minutes of power walking.

when I was losing weight before I gained muscle, what I did was drink a lot of water and eat a lot of food with fiber. I also exercised !
Stop injecting insulin

@SophieSmiles wait, what?
@zerofuks2give works as a quick solution, didn’t say it was a safe or healthy method

Get a clean diet that gives a calorie deficit and exercise a lot. One has to offset our relatively sedentary lives. No junk food on the side or midnight snacks or whatever else, and the weight will come off.

I think not eating after a certain hr. or if you must eat after past that time, just eat food that gets easily digested. those filled with protein like banana.

I hate the term diet, because it always conjures up images of fad diets that are impossible to follow long term. I prefer lifestyle modification.

Cut out sugar, stay away from refined foods in favour of whole grains, if you do eat meat, eat lean meat like chicken and fish and make sure most of your plate is filled with vegetables, especially leafy green ones.

The two best reviewed "diets" (or rather lifestyles) are the Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet and both use the above as starting points.

Exercise will also help, and if you do, include weight training. Weight training burns more calories at resting, because your muscles need to recover.

Stop snacking. Eat small portions.
