The best way to lose weight and get down to being the healthiest you possible is this:
Cut out as much fatty dairy as possible, all if you can. These are things like whole milk, cheese, butter and even some yogurts.
Absolutely no white carbs, such as white bread, white pasta, white rice.
Limit your carbs to things like quinoa, millet, wheat groats, brown rice and barley. Try to eat these in moderation when losing weight.
Eat no red meat whatsoever, and keep your protein intake limited to chicken breast, turkey breast and lots of fish. No fatty parts or skin should be consumed.
Eat LOTS of green vegetables. Add kale or spinach into smoothies, mix different dark greens into your salads, eat greens as a side dish with your dinner.
Fruit is good, but in moderation. Stay with lower sugar fruits such as apples, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Stay away from high sugar fruits, like pineapple or watermelon, thinking I these as a dessert instead of a healthy snack.
Just about anything green you can eat anytime, so if you're hungry and need a snack, bell peppers or celery are a great option.
Drinks lots and lots of water, you should have a bottle with you at all times and be drinking at least every hour. Try aiming for at least 8-10 cups per day.
As far as exercising goes, this should be something you work into your life as a daily thing. At the very least a thirty minute walk should be worked into every day of the week. Try lifting weights 3-4 times per week, and get in as much cardio as you can handle. An example of a schedule for someone brand new to exercising could be like this:
Monday: 45 cardio on treadmill, heart rate 130+
Tuesday: 30 min cardio, 130+ HR and 30 arms weight training
Wednesday: 45 min cardio, 130+ HR
Thursday: 30 min cardio 130+ HR and 30 min legs weight training
Friday: 45 min cardio 130+ HR
Saturday: 30 min cardio 130+ HR and full body weight training/abdominals
Sunday: ACTIVE rest day with at least 30 consecutive minutes brisk walking
The key of success is sticking to the plan. If you miss a day of exercise or eat something you shouldn't, that's fine. Just make sure you continue sticking to the plan for the rest of he day or the following day.
You will absolutely be sore the first couple weeks of exercising. This is normal and you must stick with it to get rid of the pain. The more you exercise, the better you'll feel an the less sore you'll get.
