CHANGE LIFESTYLE: You must address 3 areas: (1) appetite control; (2) blood sugar regulation; and (3) metabolism. Get blood levels for leptin, Insulin receptors, and thyroid (incl., tsh, total t4, t3ria, rt3, and antibodies). Eat meals 3 x daily, keep calories <1400/d, chew food thoroughly before swallowing, and drink more water (e.g., 2l/d for 150#-200#, 2.5l/d for >200#, etc.). Increase activity (4 x weekly).

It's a long process: Losing weight is a long but rewarding process. Start by keeping a food diary and seeing how many calories a day you are normally eating. Then go online, and use a calculator to see the maximum calories you should be eating. All those extra calories = weight. Then start eating less, balanced meal, and start exercising!

Eat healthy: Cut out foods like pasta, bread, sweetened drinks and cereals, candy and milk chocolate, cakes, crackers, pretzels, potato chips, pizza, hamburgers, french fries, pancakes, muffins, fruit drinks, doughnuts, dairy and eat lots of vegetables, fruits, beans, lentils, seeds, nuts, and wild fish like salmon and drink unsweetened almond milk. Plus you should exercise at least 45 minutes every day.

Gradual weight loss is better to keep it off for a long time. Rapid weight loss comes back when you stop the regimen you got there. It is difficult to stick to a regimen that makes you lose that much weight in 2 months. Get into healthy eating habits. Remember u eat 2 live and live 2 eat.

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, .
