First of all - DON'T stay away from carbs. That's an unhealthy diet that might damage your system. Balanced diet with lots of vegetables, whole grains, and non-deep-fried cooking will help you losing weight and keep you healthy.
Never go for fast solutions, if you want a healthy and happy life.
My fiend lost a lot of weight, because she just stopped eating candies and junk food - she won't eat even one little candy. This method is the best.
Eat EVERY DAY, never skip a meal.
Eat half of your regular meal size, two times slower than you used.
Drink only water / green tea.
Go for a 1/2 hour walk every day.
If you'll stick to that I guarantee you twill look good and feel good,
