Chicken breast and rice for tea. I want to lose to some weight ideally get down to 15st. Currently 20. Any tips on what other meals I should be looking at? I’ve just got a big shop in of fruit, veg, chicken breast etc. Cutting sugar completely or almost out of my diet and drinking plenty of water (9 litres a day) thanks in advance
Don't cut out sugar completely. Do it gradually.

Track everything, down to the last gram where possible, My Fitness Pal is free and easy to use.

Probably worth going about your business as usual for about a week or so to get an average of the calories you're taking in, then cut down from there.

16 pints of water a day?

46 lbs off now. Had a weird weekend where I suddenly gained 2 lbs out of nowhere despite having the same routine as normal and it took until yesterday to get back to my weight of last Friday. Still it’s come off now so that’s the main thing.

I used to be around 17 stone and now weigh around 11 stone.

I found the best way to lose weight was cutting out alcohol and also cutting out takeaway food. This is what put the weight on in the first place. 😏

I went on a strict diet which usually consisted of having porridge in the morning, healthy sandwich for lunch and soup for tee. During the day I ate lot of fruit and veg just to keep me going, which also helps to lose weight as it is full of soluble fibre. To drink I only stuck to water and probably drank around 3-4 litres a day. With this diet I was losing around 3-4 pounds a week.

If you cut out the simple carbs and eat a relatively clean diet I think it’s actually hard to get in over 2000 calories a day which I personally don’t think it’s a good idea to drop below when dieting, but others differ.

I have oats every morning and then find if I have a decent meal of something like chicken and veg around lunch time which will net me about 400-500 calories, I feel full to the point where I actually dread my next meal and I ultimately have to force myself to eat and look for strategies to get in the additional calories I need to hit my metrics over the rest of the day. And more than once on a diet I’ve even had to resort to things like adding milk to protein shakes etc which is more commonly associated with trying to gain weight in order to hit my numbers. Again, I know people differ.
