I do 60 minute cardio (walking, not running, I'm a man, not a machine). Most days (some more some less).
Avoid refined carbs (since carbs can't be withheld completely) - such as flours, rice, pasta, risotto, etc. Once a week go mental, the rest of the time stop it.
I find even with some refined sugar each day I can consistently lose weight by avoiding the carbs.
Don't skimp on the animal fats (but avoid processed plant fats such as canola and peanut oil). Cheese is great!
Just some advice I've received that works well for me.
Currently eating Oreos and drinking full cream milk. Will probably lose weight this week.
