In brief: Healthy weight loss

When trying to lose weight, there is no easy answer unfortunately - only simple math.
You must burn more calories than you consume, which is easy to say but hard to do. Keep a diary of what you eat (there are several good phone apps for this), and exercise regularly. It's important to set realistic goals. Losing one pound a week is an attainable, sustainable strategy. Good luck!
