If you're trying to lose weight, this is the worst way you can possibly go about it. Especially when you lower your intake of food, you have to watch out and make sure that it's all healthy stuff so you get your nutrients. Also you need to eat proper meals, or you either won't be able to do this for long or you'll move straight to anorexia land. Both would be shitty. So:
1. Cut the sugary stuff. Just cut it. No more 'diet sugar', no more 'sugarless juice'. If you want to sweaten up your tea, take a teaspoon of honey, it tastes better that way anyway. If you feel like drinking some juice, buy it as a treat maybe once or twice a month and make sure that it's 100% fruit and no sugar added. Even so it will be a calorie bomb, so don't drink it daily.
2. Eat a healthy breakfast! One brown toast with cream cheese ain't gonna fill you up my dear, and when you're hungry you won't be able to perform. Instead eat something healthy. A medium fruit salad with some low fat yogurt comes to mind. It tastes good and it'll give you enough energy for the rest of the day. Don't put any sugar in there tho. Sugar isn't your friend.
3. CHIPS ARE NOT A MEAL. They're a snack. Don't eat them as a meal. You will either eat to much and not lose any weight or you'll not eat enough and stay hungry. Maybe try some coucous with veggies. That shit will fill you up in no time and it tastes really good.
4. Eat something in the evening, if you only eat a piece of fruit, you'll go to bed hungry. I've done that a few times and it's the worst. It will be hard to fall asleep and your belly will hurt the next morning. Eat a full meal, maybe some chicken breast with a bit of salad. Or literally anything made with pasta (pasta has a lot of calories, but who cares. It fills you up and it's delicious).
5. Count your calories. It's literally the only way to keep proper track of how much you should be eating. There are a lot of apps to help you with it. I use myfitnesspal, it helps me a lot.
6. Don't eat anything after it gets dark. Your body will slow down its metabolism, because it's time to sleep now.
7. Treat yourself once in a while. Make little goals and once you reached one, get yourself some ice cream, or some chocolate. You know, something you really enjoy.
8. Exercise. Find something that's fun, so it's not a strain on your day to day life.
I hope you'll have great results.

The last year I've lost around 20kg (and yes... I still need to lose more). There are a couple of things I've learned though the process that might help you:
- eating every 2h30m to 3h is important! Eating several times but small really helps a lot
- during lunch, try not to eat saturated and heavy carbs ( meaning: try to avoid potatoes, fried stuff as well. Go for beans, or peas, or other carbs that are not heavy). Also, another good rule: try to use the 3 parts rule for the dish: half veggies, quarter meat/fish and quarter carbs. Try to cut out the carbs at night, since you won't use them probably
-WATER! I can not stress out how important is to have proper water in take. I am personally drinking 2 liters of water per day, but honestly, probably 1,5 liters for most people is enough
There is a lot more to know about this, but probably I would end up making this text box a lecture. Anyways, forgetting fried stuff helps, using Olive oil is usually good, and try to make it the first 2 weeks. During this time, it will be hard, but it gets natural after that period. Best luck to you.
Oh, as for the breakfast, I usually have a sandwich of non white bread ( no... This is not racist) with a piece of chicken ham and simple milk.
