All of that ^^^^. plus when you drink water make sure its ice cold. your body actually uses a small amount of calories to get the water to body temp.(or so i'v read.) Don/t drink anything but water, you consume alot of empty calories by drinking soda's and juices, and gatorades.
Figure up your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate), to do this take
1.4 X 24 X bodyweight in pounds X 0.45
What you come up with will be how many calories a day your body needs to maintain your weight. And in eating less, lowering calories it's best to do a little at a time, not just starve yourself right off. Let your body adapt. Cut out sat. fats., sweets ect.
Look at me Mom!, I'm on top of the food chain!
