Don't think in terms of "lose weight" firstly. Think "get healthy" rather.
If you're wanting to reduce your body fat percentage then diet needs to be fats to provide fuel - whole fats like butter, cream, milk, cheese as well as oils like olive oil, groundnut oil etc. Avoid processed oils or blends.
Good quality protein. Veg high in fibre and water.
Avoid refined carbohydrates. Honey is good, especially if you can get raw honey, but avoid sugar and high carbs like pasta - especially in the evening.
If an ingredient uses the word "artificial" avoid it - especially sweeteners. Aspartame, saccharine, etc actually cause as much damage in long term as sugar does.
High insulin levels contribute to weight gain, and avoiding refined sugars lowers insulin levels and reduces strain on your pancreas.
Only eat when you're hungry and try to drink actual water, not just juice and soft drinks.
Hope that helps
