  • I would start with simple changes.
    Walk, or do other exercise, for at least 20 minutes a day, at least 3 times a week.
    Make sure that you are drinking enough water, at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    Eat an apple or big pile of veggies before meals.
    Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, in at least 3 different colors.
    Eat 6-7 servings of whole grains a day.
    Replace meat and dairy with bean, lentils and tofu

  • You should drink at least 6 glasses of water a day ( yes it does help you lose weight)
    Eat 5-7 servings of veggies a day
    Make sure you get some healthy oils in everyday (olive oil)
    2 servings of milk/dairy a day

    You don't have to go to a gym to work out. I lost my weight doing weight watchers but I also did the walk at home program.
    YOu can do it, you just need to want it enough.

  • best way i've always seen is to talk to your doctor. always best before you try to diet especially because they can recommend the best kind of dietary stuff, plus maybe even a referral to a dietiacan.
    good luck!
