Thanks for posting your query.

You can lose weight by making smart choices every day, you can develop new eating habits and preferences that will leave you feeling satisfied. The key is to add the types of food that can keep you feeling satisfied and full, without packing on the pounds.
High-fiber foods are higher in volume, which makes them filling. They also take longer to chew, which makes them more satisfying to eat. High-fiber foods also take a long time to digest, which means you will feel full longer. There is nothing magic about it, but the weight-loss results may seem like it. The high water and fiber content in most fruits and vegetables makes them hard to overeat. You will feel full long before you have overdone it on the calories.

Following are the steps that will help,

1.     Instead of the traditional three meals a day, eat only when you are actually hungry, and eat what you like but try to be healthy. Avoid eating anything 3 hours before sleeping.

2.     Avoid chocolate, cake, brownies, potato chips, ice cream, fizzy drinks or any junk food.

3.     Never starve yourself. It shuts down your metabolism, which is a major process to help you lose weight. It also makes you feel woozy, tired, and makes you hungrier and your weight-loss plan unsustainable

4.     Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables, especially if you feel like snacking or for dessert. Note that some plants such as corns, avocado, banana, coconut, contain much higher calories than others. You do not need to avoid all the high calories plants but just do not think you can eat them as much as you want.

5.     Aim to eat 'good Carbohydrates' (which have a low glycemic index) such as brown rice, oats, whole-wheat bread and whole-wheat pasta. Try not to have carbohydrates after 5pm as any unused will likely be stored as fat overnight.

6.     Don’t forget about exercising!

7.     Eat breakfast each morning. Eating something in the morning gets your metabolism going and prevents you from binge eating later in the day.

8.     Drink plenty of water, and cut down on carbonated beverages, particularly those with a lot of sugar. Try to not drink any soda.

A minimum 30-45 minutes brisk walk / physical activity of moderate intensity improve overall health. Include 'Warm-up' and 'cool-down' periods, before and after the exercise regimen. Forty-five minutes per day of moderate intensity physical activity provides many health benefits.

Hope I answered your query. Please do write back for further discussion and clarifications that you may need.
