Go slowly.: Most weight loss occurs through dieting. Exercise helps maintain your weight loss. Try aerobic exercises such as brisk walking, jogging, elliptical trainer for about 20-30 minutes per day while avoiding refined carbohydrates and eating within your daily metabolic requirements based on the weight you wish to achieve ( go slowly. 10% body fat loss at a time if you are overweight is reasonable).

Nothing fast: You cannot lose weight fast by fasting and inactivity, plus you will tend to lose the wrong weight--being muscle mass. There should be some activity you can do to burn calories while making a conscious effort to eat less calories. The calories expended > ingested rule still applies.
