Rather than going on a diet, make a lifestyle change! this will help you manage your weight in the long run & will be less likely to gain it back like most on diets
Eat 3-6 small meals/snacks--balanced combo of fruits, colorful veggies, lean protein
(fish/chicken), grains (wheat, rice). Try to avoid processed/boxed/sugary foods. You don't have to cut them out completely, save them for a treat.
