In brief: Hydrate and no sweet
First hydrate with water. Cut all sweet liquids - anything with more than 6 calories per serving should be completely eliminated - forever. Next, cut out sweet solid foods also - as much as possible.
Count your fiber intake and get at least 25 g of fiber every single day. Once you are doing all the above for 6 weeks you will start to lose. If you don't. Back to the doctor.
