Many experts now think exercise doesn't help you loose weight. You don't use up that many calories and it can make you so hungry you end up eating enough that you eat the calories you burned. Exercise can make you more fit.
Drinking only water is a good start. Keep cold water in the fridge. Drink a large glass about half an hour before you eat and it may help you eat less. The DASH diet was designed for hypertension but it has turned out to be good for weight loss and a good lifelong eating plan. Go to google and type in DASH diet. Also type in superfoods. These are the foods you should be eating.

The first thing you should do is figure out your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) which is basically the amount of calories your body burns just to survive. I like this site http://www.bmrcalculator.org/ and make sure to scroll down to see how many more calories you burn with different activity levels.
Next you have to realize that 3500 calories is equal to 1 pound of fat. So say the BMR calculator says you burn 2000 calories per day with walking, you eat 1500 calories that day which means you have a deficit of 500 calories for that day. If you were to do that for 7 days straight, it would add up to 3500 calorie deficit for the week equaling 1 pound of fat loss. BMR calculators are just an estimate but it gets you an idea of how much you should be taking in.
