Eat nutritious (lots of veggies) and get into ketosis by keeping net carbs under 20 and maybe even under 10 grams a day. Watch protein intake, keep it around .5 * body weight in lbs = grams, otherwise that sh*t will basically turn in to sugar in your body. Also, learn which proteins absorb better. E.g. egg whites only absorb less than 20% and the rest turn to glycogen (stored glucose), whereas the entire egg is way higher. Weigh yourself every day, use a scale that sends measure to your phone so you can see it on a chart. Don't give a sh*t about calories eaten or burned. Just make sure you are eating zero added sugar. Do HIIT training and take long walks. It will relax you at night and lower your cortisol. 1.5 hours of serious sport, e.g. soccer or HIIT will burn about 600 calories, but again this is not for loosing weight it will make you feel good and may help you get to ketosis faster. Have a very large metal cup that you keep ice-water in. Do no drink coffee/caffeine, it raises cortisol. No more milk. It isn't doing your body good. It helps to get MCT oil (medium-chained triglycerides) which will convert into ketones fast and allow you to "fast" from carbs immediately. There are a few ways to consume it.

Your snacks should include nuts/seeds that are low carb. Get extra light tasting olive oil and add it to everything, also sea salt. Eat the nut/seed snacks with organic peanut butter added (not the cheap skippy sh*t, because you will react to the pesticides from eating so much of it and it has added sugar). Get the ready to eat bags of spinach. They are your staple food. Cook entire thing in a big pot, add butter, salt to your liking. Cooking veggies can destroy some vitamins, but also brings out others. Learn which ones gain/loose due to cooking. Buy whole mushrooms (they are easier clean), slice and cook in a pan and add to anything. They provide more taste than most people think.

These are just some ideas. You want to burn fat for energy instead of glucose. Most people have ~70,000 calories in their body in the form of fat, and only ~1,700 calories of glucose in their blood stream. A typical person has to keep eating throughout the day to keep blood sugar levels high or they crash. The best method is to switch your body to using fat as a source for energy to loose weight. This is ketosis.

Also, start watching Dr. Berg on youtube. He has tons of presentations on keto diet and the science of it.

Good luck.
