    Exercise more and eat mostly nutrient dense foods. The formula for weight loss is simple, you need to expend more energy than you consume. Eat plently of fresh wholefoods and exercise four or five times a week at least.

    Don't bother with fad or crash diets. You will not keep the weight off this way and more likely to yo-yo and do lasting impact to your metabolism- making losing weight in the future even harder. Being healthy and slim is not a quick fix. It's a long-term lifestyle choice. People who lose weight steadily are far more likely to keep it off versus people who do stupid diets.

    Do remember that muscle is denser than fat - as such, weight isn't usually a great form of measure in terms of satisfaction about ones self image. In other words, you could exercise, slim down, gain muscle, look and feel healthy, but still be a weight you view to be undesirable.

    Unless your goal is to lose weight to meet the standards at a weigh in, then your goal is most probably to lose fat.

    You'll hear people telling you to count calories. Yes, you could and probably should count calories to be perfectly sure of what you're in-taking and what you're using, as this will be most efficient in measuring how many calories you're burning off, and how much you need to burn to be in a calorie deficit in order to lose weight.

    I don't bother with that. It's too cumbersome. I eat constantly. I'm always hungry. I'm not going to avoid putting avocado onto my salmon, just because it has that extra 200 calories that I might not get round to burning off immediately. How grey would my life be without avocados? I just exercise really ****ing hard and eat healthily - the only thing I really count is my protein intake (bearing in mind complete protein) in order to help maintain my body.

    Assuming you're not an athlete, and you're just looking for a way to get rid of unwanted fat, then just pay attention to the following two things:

    1) Diet.

    Eat nutritionally dense food. Salmon on a bed of cous cous and pepper salad is better than a burger and chips. Eat in moderation and balance your meals so that you have proteins, carbs, fats and plenty of vitamins and nutrients, as well as lots of fibre to help everything digest properly and to allow your body to regulate itself.

    A good way to balance your meal (which works most of the time) is 2-1-1; vegetables (try to get some dark greens alongside other veggies):carb (ideally wholegrain, such as brown rice or quinoa) protein (fish is king. Chicken is brilliant. Egg is fab too).

    Drink plenty of water. Your body needs to be hydrated and stay hydrated in order to work efficiently to process nutrients, burn fat, etc.

    2) Exercise.

    Your exercise should be tailored to your goal. If you're looking to burn fat alone, there are a few ways to do that, each yielding their own different results.Tell us your goal, and what body type you're after. We can advise your accordingly.

    As a rule of thumb, any fat loss program will involve muscle building/training too - this isn't to make you she-hulk. It's to make sure you're healthy, that your body can support itself (your body needs muscle as a support), and to not make you look like a skeleton once you've lost fat.

    As such, be prepared for cardio and weight training sessions. Though as I said, what form these sessions will take will be down to what you want to achieve.

    What ?
    Who needs to lose wieght~ xd

    Don't think about losing weight.. be happy with who and how you are.. but yeah you could start a new sport or activity where you'd be using energy ( karate, taekwondo, soccer, running... you name it )
    Forget about losing weight and just start something new. You'll have fun and might become fitter in the process ~

    Anyone who is overweight to the point it is affecting their health.

    I don't get why people see trying to lose weight as a negative thing. There is nothing wrong with trying to better yourself if there is healthy room for improvement.

    Eat less, move more. Apply further until weight starts coming off.

    Cliche advice is fun and all, but realistically, we know as people that being overweight is generally unattractive and always will be, no matter how SJWs try and change that.

    It doesn't matter.

    If someone wants to lose weight, as long as it's not going into unhealthy region, then it's fine.

    We all have our own goals and make our own choices in life. There's nothing wrong with that.

    Dear WoodyMKC , SophieSmall and Kagutsuchi,
    You guys have been skimming through glossy magazines at the hair salon right ~


    There is so much more to attractiveness than outward appearance. Personality, charm...
    Now focusing on losing weight is not fun and quite tiring while doing something you like, you lose weight and are having fun.

    Repeat after me Sophie, barbie is not real, barbie is not real, barbie is not real ~ !

    Short, tall, chubby, big, small, everyone is beautiful ~

    Beautiful isn't diabetes or heart failure or peripheral arterial disease or stroke or cancer... Glib comments like this don't help the OP, who has clearly indicated that they want help regarding losing weight.

    You are entitled to your opinion just as I am entitled to mine.
    You need a eye check too
    If you read the post well instead of jumping, you would have seen that I did encourage OP to indulge into a physical activity of her liking ~

    stop having dinner
    stop all the fatty/ high calorie foods
    replace everything you can with "diet" "light" or "fat free" versions
    eat on a small (side) plate
    drink three times the water you already do
    walk everywhere (but don't use it as an excuse to eat more)
