- Drink a lot of water and avoid anything high in sugars like soda and juice.
- Get regular exercise even if it means walking a few miles a day but if you're looking to drop weight faster then push yourself to a jog or a run. Try to run outside and not on a treadmill and make sure you stretch to avoid injury. Adding some weight/machine work also doesn't hurt but make sure you know what you're doing before you dive into it.
- When you eat try to incorporate more whole grains, vegetables, and protein and avoid anything with a lot of, again, sugars and dairy. You don't have to completely eliminate carbs from your diet but you could avoid really processed breads and try to eat things with more grains (basically avoid white bread, bagels, white rice, etc. Eat brown or wild rice, whole wheat or whole grain breads) And when you eat salad, go easy on the dressing, avoid a ton of croutons, and try to eat darker leafy greens. Also avocados are good for you but in moderation!
- Reduce any/all alcohol intake and again, DRINK A LOT OF WATER.
I'm not a professional athlete or a nutritionist by any means but these few bullet points have worked for me in the past and I stand by them.
