Eating a mini-meal every two to three hours (5 to 6 small meals per day total) to keep blood sugar level and prevent hunger
Combining lean proteins and complex carbs at every meal
Avoiding all over-processed and refined foods (especially sugar, white rice, and white flour)
Avoiding saturated and trans fat, instead consuming healthy fats
Avoiding soda and other sugary juices and drinks
Avoiding high-calorie, zero nutrient foods (i.e., junk food)
Eating proper portion sizes
Drinking at least 8 cups of water every day
Cardio and strength training. Walking is good to do if that is all you can make time for. Just keep up a good pace. Squats and lunges will help too and you can do those easily most anywhere.
Clean eating though is what will be the one thing that will make so much difference.. I cant say it's exactly realistic to try and live by 24/7 but to do as much as possible, it helps!
