201 may be on the overweight side, depending on your height. The only way to truely tell if you are overweight is by calculating your BMI, or Body Mass Index.
First, visit http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/bmi-cal... to calculate your BMI and determine if you need to lose weight.
The FASTEST way to lose weight is honestly by doing a detox diet program. With detox diets, you are not allowed to eat anything, but you have to drink a TON of a special concoction (usually plain water mixed with weird stuff, like chilli powder or maple syrup...yeah it's really gross.) The benefit of this is that you will lose a lot of weight in a short period of time without excerise. HOWEVER, the major drawback is that the weight that you lose is going to be mainly water weight, and maybe even muscle mass (which is very dangerous to lose because it will slow down your metabolism, meaning you don't burn as many calories as you used to.) And, you will more than likely gain all the weight back and more once you complete the program.
I do NOT reccomend a crash diet like this. However, you will read that some detox programs can help you "cleanse your body of toxins", there are really no scientific facts that back that theory up. Keep that in mind.
However, I will reccomend diets such as The Fat Smash diet, which was used on Celebrity Fit Club on VH1. You can check out the book at your local library. It's a program that is set over 90 days, and incorporates ways to overhaul your eating habits, add in excerise to your daily life, and change your life completly. I would also reccomend the ABS Diet For Women, which you can also check out at your local library. This diet is also a lifestyle change, but I would not reccomend this if you are completly unfarmiliar with nutrition, because it might not make sense if you don't understand the importance of protiens, fiber, fatty acids etc.
Bottom Line - losing weight effectively takes time. There is no way to drop 30 pounds a month and be able to keep it off. However, if you check out The Fat Smash Diet and like what it has say ( I think you will) the program will overhaul your life in 3 months if you stick to it. You can expect to lose about 30 pounds in THREE months (which is an AWESOME realistic goal - however it depends on your size).
Good luck my dear! I hope I helped. Trust me, check out the book - it's a short read and will help you out a lot!! =]
