I'm desperate to lose this weight.
Specific questions: I know that I won't be able to maintain burning so many calories per day in the long-term; should I limit my exercise now? Is that reasonable?
My advice would be to not follow any 'diet' too closely. Don't follow any diet that completely denies any kind of 'bad food’. Diets focus too much on what you can't eat rather than what you can.
Cutting out white carbs - the bread, the pasta, potato are cool. I've switched from white bread and rice to brown. I still eat potatoes though. It leaves me feeling fuller and more satisfied.
Try to go for lean meats. Just concentrate on your diet and what are you eating plus do some physical workouts like running, swimming.
