In brief: Use up the calories!

Anything that uses energy (calories) will help one lose weight, as long as she doesn't eat or drink back more calories right after the activity.
Examples: if walking, take a longer route; use stairs instead of elevators; take multiple trips to and from the car when unloading groceries; park a block from school and walk there with the kids; at home skip dessert and go walk around the block instead.

In brief: Eat less & exercise

The key to losing weight is not a temporary diet but permanent changes.
Sugars and simple carbs from grains esp. cause weight gain. I like Dr. Furhman's diet: http://tinyurl.com/ktampgg Dr. Weil has useful info: http://tinyurl.com/m8avwzh - see his "discuss that" link in his article. Also see https://authoritynutrition.com/weight-loss/ for many useful articles. Exercise is also important.
