I need generic diet advice.

So basically I’m in the worst shape of my life.

I was a construction worker for 9 years before a back injury forced me back to school and pick a new career.

Now that I’m out of physical labor my weight has gone up.

What are the easiest ways I can lose this excess weight through diet?

I mean I know the basics, avoid sugar and carbs. But if there is other basic things I can do I’d like to start.

I admit I do not work out, struggling to find the motivation. But I have to be careful because of my back… I’d like to start with tightening up my diet then add in some low weight high reps exercises.

Thanks in advance for responses.
