Most important is to eat a BALANCED diet. You can cut back on carbs, but don't eliminate them completely. Instead, go for whole grains and not the processed flour products. Look for products high in fiber - they'll keep you filled up.
Increase your protein and vegetable intake, and cut back your fats, but again, don't eliminate them completely. Your body needs foods from all food groups including fats to function properly. Drink plenty of water. Water helps your body use foods and fats more efficiently.
A good tip is to shop the perimeter of the grocery store and skip the aisles. The food around the edges of the store are generally the least processed and the most healthy for you. Avoid drinks with high fructose corn syrup, and don't buy snacks and goodies that you will find tempting, even if there are other people in your house. They can have their goodies elsewhere, but at home, they need to support you by not eating tempting things in front of you.
Equally important is portion control. Just because it's fat free doesn't mean it's good for you. In fact, it's better to have a small serving of full fat ice cream to satisfy a craving than it us to eat half a carton of non fat ice cream. It won't satisfy you. Also, overloading on fruits and veggies won't help. You need to learn to eat the correct amounts, so start measuring. A digital kitchen scale can be very helpful for this.
Excercise at least 30 minutes 3x a week. Diet and exercise is really the best combination for losing weight properly and keeping it off. Losing slow, but steady will help your keep it off - crash diets are never any good for you and you almost always gain the weight back.
I highly recommend the South Beach diet. Phase 1 elminates all carbs and is a VERY hard phase to get through so you may need to modify it. But it is a good way to learn how to eat and that's another important point. You need to make a lifestyle change and not just go on a diet for lasting change.
Combining diet and exercise should help you lose 2-3 lbs per week, on average. You don't want to lose much more than that because it would be water weight that would very easily come back. Don't get too discouraged by getting on the scale all the time. As you exercise, your body builds muscle, and muscle weighs more than fat, but takes up less space. So you may only weigh 10 lbs less than you did before, but you'll drop 2 pants sizes. It's best to use the scale sparingly and track your progress through the fit of your clothes and your feelings of health in general.
Don't get discouraged if you feel you're not losing fast enough. Make up your mind that you want to make a change and do something every day to work towards your goals. Make small changes and build on them - don't make one radical change after another becuase it's too hard to sustain them. Pick one thing you KNOW you can do for a week - like drinking more water, or skipping dessert, and do it. The next week, pick an new thing you know you can do, and do that in addition to your previous new healthy habit. Keep building on those habits and make them a real lifestyle change.
Reward yourself for reaching milestones or goals, but never, never, never with food. If you meet your exercise goals, buy yourself a new CD or a nail polish. If you've lost 5 lbs, treat yourself to a new pair of earrings.
Good luck and hang in there. I read something by Dr. Phil that makes a lot of sense. "A year from now, you can be the weight you are, or you can be the weight you want to be. You're the one that decides which one it is, and you make those changes every day."

In most cases, you would have to cut out a lot of things in your diet to have a low carbohydrate diet. Many things have carbohydrates such as Milk, Bread, Sugar, Caramel, Rice, Pasta, etc. It requires a complete lifestyle change and you would need to do cardio at least 2 times a week to get the most out of your low carb diet, because you will be able to burn off more fat.
An example of what you would call a low carb diet:
- Morning: Bowl of Weetabix (with 25ml of no-fat milk)
- Midday: Banana, Cheese Sandwich (Brown Bread)
- Early Afternoon: Salmon and Egg Whites Mix
- Late Afternoon: Grilled Chicken with Vegetables and Potatoes (if you wish)
And, don't be super skinny. You will deprive yourself to countless levels to get there. Get to something that is considerate and accept yourself because you clearly don't like what you are at the moment, but being super skinny where all you can see is bones and no proper lean meat on your body looks disgusting. The whole point is you be yourself and as long as you are average weight and healthy, you should be really happy like many people are.
eating water rich foods such as melons tomatoes and celery can help fill you up without adding too many calories to your day

For sandwich-lovers, use spinach or swiss chard leaves as opposed to a wrap, skip the peel of cheese, and load high on the veggies.

It’s your little friend things that count. Invest throughout spanks. They cinch in the wobbly bits and allow you to feel taught, toned and great.

It is now a known fact that reducing specifically carbs, or fats won't help you loose weight. If you try to clear carbs out of your diet but you end up taking more fats and proteins, you'll end up at the same place. What you need to do is to reduce CALORIES. Now reducing carbs will reduce calories, but make sure that you also keep your fats low.
Also, there is no diet that will help you loose 100 lbs alone. You need to exercise too!

This will work only.
xercise such as lifting weights or doing running only influences your metabolic rest rate this will definitely help you. Its all do with your nutrition.
1. Eat breakfast within 30 minutes of waking
2. Increase your meal frequency without increasing total calorie intake
3. Increase your vegetable intake
4. Be strategic with cardio (aerobic) exercise selection and frequency.
5. Drink more water
6.Consume the majority of your calories during the day
A lot of research has analyzed the diets of many different population groups and one important trait is seen in people who are lean. They consume most of their calories during the day as opposed to at night. Some researchers believe that by consuming the majority of your calories during the day, more calories are burnt as fuel and less are stored as fat. However, regardless of when you exercise, remember the Metabolic Window is key to maximizing results from every workout.
7. Consume a substantial portion of your daily calories within the Metabolic Window.
Vigorous or intense exercise accelerates the body’s metabolism tremendously. However, it also creates a tremendous amount of tissue breakdown. Without the correct approach to nutrition after training, a loss of lean tissue can be the end result. Losing lean tissue (muscle) slows the metabolism and this is the surest way to stagnate any attempt at fat loss. The post workout period is an ideal “metabolic window of opportunity” for boosting the metabolism and improving body composition. Research demonstrates that nutrients consumed in the hours following a workout are shuttled directly to muscles to boost the metabolism and repair damaged tissue. Nutrient consumption in the post-workout period does not interfere with the fat metabolism loss process – it enhances it. For more info, read the Metabolic Window
8. Don’t “live” on supplements.In an attempt to get lean, some people try to “live” on supplements; they don’t consume enough whole foods to provide optimal nutrition for intense exercise. I’ve always found that supplements provide the best results when they “complement” an extensive and varied whole food intake rather than replace it. The very best supplements can only exert their potent effects when consumed along with a high intake of whole food – not in place of it. One clear example of this is step 3. Increase your vegetable intake. Also, a high intake of protein-rich whole foods such as egg whites, fish, meats legumes and poultry will stabilize blood sugar and insulin levels, this ensures that your supplements are directed towards muscle growth and repairing muscle tissue and not wasted by providing energy.
9. Perform exercise twice-a-day, once a week.Research has shown that two 15-minute workouts performed 6-hours apart will burn double the amount of calories compared to a single 30-minute exercise session of the same intensity. This makes twice-a-day exercising a phenomenal tool for fat loss.
However, the fact is, most people's nutrition just isn't good enough to make twice-a-day training effective. Be very aware that training twice-a-day has a metabolic toll on the body.The number of people I've helped get into fantastic shape exceeds the number of meals you ate this year. So listen up when I tell you how to implement twice-a-day training effectively.Training twice-a-day plus a regular (busy) work week really increases the risk of overtraining. Unless you’re a pro-athlete, I recommend introducing twice-a-day training very sparingly. Twice-a-day training really is a double-edge sword - done the right way it can have fantastic effects. However, when performed in a irrational, obsessive-compulsive manner this is the fastest road to stagnation, muscle loss and fat gain - precisely the opporsite to what you're trying to achieve.
Firstly, don't fall into the mind set “more is better”. To make exercise a successful, positive aspect of your life - you have to lose that. It's senseless and destructive. Instead, be fruigal with your time spent exercising. Adopted the approach, "how can I get the absolute most from every second I spend exercising?" With this mindset, your results will come much faster. Start by introducing one “twice-a-day” training day into your weekly schedule. Exercising briefly, twice a day, just one day a week. This simple yet effective strategy that will put your metabolism into overdrive.
Metabolic window is 3 hours after you workout by the way. Just FYI and by the way just make sure you eat protein from lean meats and also whey protein that also helps
