Eat healthier: Eliminate foods with sugar, such as sugary drinks, cakes, ice cream, fried foods, pizza, pasta, breads and watch weight drop. Exercise is also important for reasons unrelated to weight so good to do some every day, even if only for a few minutes.

Less Carbs: For most people the most reliable way to lose weight is to eat less carbs. Carbs are bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, and also fruit juice, sweets - candy, cake, pastries. Carbs are also in junk food - chips, crackers for instance - and in all pop - stop all soda including diet soda. One idea is to notice how much carbs you eat at a meal and eat only half. Good luck!

Yes: A healthy well-balanced diet, 3 meals without snacks. Caloric restriction (eating less than you burn off) and increased physical exercise since you need to lose weight. There's no magic here. Find an eating plan you can follow the rest of your life, not a short-term diet. Avoid junk and snack food. Check w/your registered dietitian. Have your doctor check thyroid and look for possible pcos.
