Nutrition, nutrition, nutrition. You'll hear a lot of advice from people on how to work out properly for fat loss and the truth is they're all right. The reason is because IT DOESN'T MATTER what you do for exercise as long as you keep active and doing things that involve burning off your body's energy supplies provided you are KEEPING YOUR NUTRITION RIGHT.
What you DON'T want to do:
-Eat nothing/too little.
-Completely cut any specific food group or macronutrient (proteins, carbs, fats) from your diet. Your body needs all of these things to survive (unless you are medically sensitive to a specific thing for a specific reason)
-Take "diet" pills.
-Consume only liquids
What you DO want to do:
-Prepare your own foods from scratch often. If you have to, cook a bunch at once for reheating later.
-Olive oil and coconut oil should be the only oils you cook with.
-Focus more on slow digesting carbohydrates than fast.
-Eat only whole grains, not bleached/enriched.
-Meats should be lean meats only
-Drink only water
Be strict about your nutrition and exercise won't matter. Dance, run, jump around in your room while listening to heavy metal, whatever! Just burn energy. You don't have to follow any specific plan for exercise. If you want to fine tune your body for a specific look after you've progressed with your weight loss goals, come back and post a new question then.
