Fill up on protein: chicken, beef, tofu, eggs, cheese, bacon, you get the idea. Basically anything without carbohydrate in it.

Do not each past 6pm and eat smaller portions, yes you will feel hungry for a while but you will get used to it.
Consume only healthy chemically unaltered fats and oils, olive oil, avocado oil, natural butter, lard, hemp oil, virgin coconut oil.
Start consuming healthy omega 3 oil, flax seed oil and fish oils are pretty much the two main ones. When you take flax seed oil, mix it with either quark or unsweetened Greek yogurt, this will enable the oil to become water soluble and your body will absorb it much easier.
Get some exercise in! Walking, weight lifting, squats, running, climbing the stairs, cycling etc.
There are infinite forms of exercise, no one has an excuse not to exercise in some way or another, even five minutes a day, provides benefits.
