NOT a diet, it's been proven to be bad for weight loss. excercise is good though, just gentle stuff, start with walking, jogging, swimming's good to. or take up a hobbie, like a sport. tennis and yoga i find fun. also, i've read that the way you eat (not a diet) can make a huge difference too. 1) drink more, when you're hungry, just drink and it makes you feel fuller. 2) only eat when you're hungry (but don't starve yourself).
