Avoid sugars: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and lettuce (with little or no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar ; simple starch calories.

Exercise: Moderate activity will maintain health. Walk 30+ minutes a day to stay active ; lift light weights!

Weight Loss: Maintain a plant based diet, exercise aerobically for 40 minutes in your target zone for at least 40 minutes 4 to 6 times a week, in addition do weight resistance 3 times a week. Consider consulting with an exercise physiologist. Best.
