    so is that 5' 7" tall and you weigh 171 lbs or are you talking in metric - and by how much are you over wgt - we are not experts here on this forum - just ordinary people so it is not our place to guess how much you are over wgt or by how much you need to lose - please be specific or the advice  you receive might be very wrong indeed - if your doctor did not discuss wgt loss with you then it would be my assumption  that you do not need to lose very much so an easy way to do that would be to cut out snacks between meals such as crisps, sweets, biscs and stay clear of sugary drinks as often what we drink is forgotten about but it can be as bad as some of the foods we eat - make some swops in your eating regime such as low fat and low sugar alternatives - drink less alcohol, drink  more water and include a bit more physical activity into your daily routine such as walking or cycling instead of using the car or bus - walking up stairs instead of the lift or escalator - little changes all add up to the bigger picture - just get weighed once per wk whilst you are doing this - good luck

    PS whilst  you may not have very much wgt to lose it is better to nip it in the bud cos nobody becomes a BIG ten stones over wgt - it starts with one little pound - that little pound grows into a stone and so it goes - it sneaks on gradually and is often unnoticed until the clothes start getting tighter but the next lot of  clothes we buy we make sure they are a bit bigger and so it goes - you do right to lose your  little bit of extra wgt before it gets out of hand - so  say you have ten lbs to l ose - be realistic - you might only lose it at 1 lb per wk but keep chipping away at it till it is gone and try to learn a few life style changes along the way 'cos its not the losing of the wgt which is the hard part it is the keeping it off - you do not have to cut out all the things you like but you maybe need to restrict them cos if you don't change some things in your life then even if you lose the surplus wgt this time, it will just come back plus interest - ten pounds to lose this time but if you regain it then you can bet your life it will be a stone the next time and the time after that a stone and a half  - it gets bigger every time. You are young and you can do this but do it now

    I have seen that people are saying that 80% of losing weight is dieit. I have been trying for a longish time now and have lost some weight. But have not found a pill that has helped instead I just made small changes to my deit. One was to drink more water instead of tea. But if you like tea you can get this a friend of mine runs the site and she likes the stuff. I doubt it will cure all but like anything should help if water is not for you

    It seems like you are just ok, should not get serious with losing weight. But yes, it is always good to stay fit. Try the following things:

    Eat a high-protein breakfast.

    Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juice. 

    Drink water a half hour before meals. 

    Choose weight loss-friendly foods.

    Eat soluble fiber.

    Drink coffee or tea. 

    Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods. 

    Eat your food slowly.
