'Tips For Weight Loss'

Sharing part of an article from Diet Doctor Site, which you can read in full here

'Top 10 weight loss tips

Avoid eating carbs and fat together. This combination provides excessive calories with little to no nutritional value — think pizza, cookies, chips, donuts, etc. — and may increase cravings.

Eat at least 30 grams of protein at most meals. Protein foods are the most satiating and nutrient-dense type of food.

On a low-carb approach, which is often a successful weight loss strategy, limit net carbs to less than 100 grams (or keep them as low as 20 grams per day, if you want to try a keto diet).

Fill your plate with fibrous veggies. These provide abundant nutrients, high food volume, and relatively few calories.

Add enough fat for taste and to enjoy your food, but not more than you need. Let’s be honest, fat tastes great! Taste is an essential part of long-term nutritional success. But too much fat can add calories you don’t need.

If you’re hungry, start with adding more protein and vegetables. Again, these are the most satiating and nutritious food for the fewest calories.

Find foods you enjoy that fit the above criteria. Check out some recipes here.

Stay physically active. You don’t have to run marathons, but physical activity added to a healthy diet can help maintain fat loss while preserving muscle mass.

Get adequate restorative sleep. Sleep like your health depends on it, because it does!

Create an environment to promote your success. It isn’t just about knowing what to do. It’s also about creating the environment that will help you succeed. For example, removing tempting foods from your kitchen is just one great way to get started.'

Good tips
It isn't easy though, to balance carbs and protein.
A dietician once told me that having an whole sweet potato as an evening snack is not good because I need protein and half the sweet potato for proper balance.

The last one is the best one is to keep tempting foods away in the first place, would be easier to do if you lived alone but still the best starting place
