    You can loose a lot of weight by changing your diet. •Cut out fats (sugary foods, oily foods, fatty meats such as red meat).
    •You should also reduce carbohydrates (pasta, bread, biscuits, rice or potatoes) and replace with green and lean meats.
    •You should eat lean meats (meats with low fat) such as fish or chicken.
    •eat greens such as broccoli, green beans, spinach, peppers, carrots. It is best to steam the veg as it keeps the vitamins and nutrients in them.

    You should look online for meals with these ingredients. You can find some very tasty ones.

    Eat less, move more. No need for a gym membership for general weight loss.

    do more weight bearing exercices, e.g you could do 10 press-ups in the morning when you first wake up and 10 before you go to bed, you could also increase the amount you do or add on exercises such as the plank, or sit-ups and try going for long walks or a fun to improve you aerobic fitness.

    Losing weight is 90% diet. Get that on point before anything else, which means finding a caloric and macro amount that suits your goals (I recommend www.1percentedge.com/ifcalc/ as a starting point).
    If you want to throw in some running or some bodyweight exercises in the meantime, by all means do so, but the more weight-training you can do the better as opposed to cardio. NerdFitness has a good beginner routine, as does the bodyweight subreddit.
