First I lost about 50 lbs by changing my diet. Not by counting calories or doing weird diets. Sort of like a high quality Eat This, Not That approach.
I also experiment with things like veggie juices, intermittent fasting, and Bulletproof coffee. Not because these things are required for your health, but because we are all unique snowflakes. Maybe that odd thing you haven't tried yet will turn out to be supper effective in helping yopu achieve your fitness goals.
I've gained back some weight, but this weight is muscle. I'm okay with that.
