I am currently 23 years old and weigh 110kg, mostly because I spent a lot of time in front of the computer and I am not doing any kind of sport. So I decided to lose some weight so I wanted to ask if my approach is good enough, since I feel like it is kind of rudimentary:
I started doing walks every evening. I am not jogging, just walking normally (maybe a bit faster than I normally would). I always go for 10 km and it usually takes me around 1h 45mins.
When it comes to my diet, all I am really doing at the moment is counting calories. I try to stay under 2000 calories per day. Not sure if I set that number too low or too high.
A lot of different sources on the web recommend specific diets, like low carb, low fat etc. Also most workouts designed for weight-loss are a lot more sophisticated than what I am doing - simply going for a walk. So I am posting this question to maybe get some feedback on my approach. Is what I am doing enough to get to a healthy weight in a reasonable amount of time? Or would it be better doing an actual workout or doing a more specific diet instead of just counting calories?
Until now I have never actively tried to lose weight, so I would also appreciate any kind of beginner tips.
