A good routine would be running, which is an effective way to burn fat and tone muscle all over the body. This is a great way to encourage weight loss, without difficult changes.

Originally Answered: Will eating less be equally or more effective as eating healthier to lose weight?
Realistically, you probably need to do both.
Just eating less is neither healthy or wise for losing weight. As it causes your body to reconfigure it's input / output balance. Metabolism. So you do one thing and it compensates.
To lose constructively, you should eat balanced and healthy and several times a day, in fewer calories than you need to maintain your current weight.
For that you need to pick a starting point below the FDA and doctors recommended 2000 calories a day. Which is a figure for a 25 yo active person.
So once you start at say 1700cal, then you plan meals and snacks to keep you in that. If you see loss of 1 to 3 lb per week then you are being successful and healthy and you will learn how you and your own body use calories. Everyone is different.
Also, don't sweat holidays and special occasions. Just go back to the diet the next day. (Ahem, everyday is not special, neither is every weekend.)
I've lost 109lb and have 25 more to go. And I gain weight if I have more than 800cal/day and don't walk an extra 5 miles/day.
You can do it. See ya there!
