Want to lose weight. What to do?

Hi there, I am just over 100kgs and I m desparate to lose weight. I m not on an eating plan as I just dont know where to start, but I try no/low to eat carbs. I just dont know whether I should continue on this path or try something different. I have been on this diet before and I lost a lot of weight, but I put it all back on. I am a member of the gym and I am going during my lunch breaks. The same as most people, I want to lose weight now, but I have to be realistic. I have an overall goal weight, but for now, I really want to lose weight for Christmas - I just dont know what to do?! Could you please please help me go in the right direction? Do I carry on with the way I am going or change... of so, what do I change to? Thank you so much!

Thanks for approaching.

Weight Loss is not a difficult task,the thing is that you have to be determined for your target. you should set small targets and achieve them gradually.You have not mentioned your height,age,sex and medical complication if any!Weight loss of 10kgs i.e.approx 20 pounds can be achieved in 2.5 mnths,by just monitoring your food and physical workout .Along with the nutritional diet plans you can include some of the kitchen herbs which will help in boosting your metabolism like cumin,ajwain,fenugreek,coriander etc.Its not always good to quit carbs to loose weight,some blood gps really lose good on carbs.Excess protein diet may cause bloating and overload on your kidneys. So u should opt for more of a balanced diet plans to lose weight depending upon your bodytype and routine.

Stay Healthy!
