    Weight loss is 80% diet.  Stamina is a measure of one's ability to do sustain aerobic work.

    If you're overweight, the key is to get into a calorie deficit.  That means you have to accurately assess your calorie needs by using a a BMR or TDEE calculator (online).  Many weight loss/food tracking apps have built in features that will tell you how many calories to eat based on your weight loss goal.

    Then you weigh and measure your portion sizes and track your calories. You learn to eat nutrient-dense foods so that you get the vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty and amino acids your body needs while feeling satisfied within your daily calorie limit.

    Well, the first thing you can do would be to do a simple cleanse. Cut out sugars and start drinking at least 3 liters of water a day. Then, incorporate some exercise a couple of times a week.

    Make sure the workouts are optimized towards fat loss. This video will show you exactly what I mean:

    And how can you lose weight quickly? Eat some cumin wine, ginger water, green tea, cinnamon? Will it decline, then? It's very good to eat green tea with a healthy diet and exercise. Butt cumin, ginger, cinnamon decrease weight, nobody has been able to confirm that for sure.

    Stamina isn't required, but will power is. 


    Make a lifestyle change. 80% of fat loss is about what you eat, so that’s more important than exercise. Any "diet" you go on may help you lose some weight but you'll tend to gain it back if you go back to your previous ways. Unhealthy diets also can cause weight loss of tissue other than fat (such as muscle, especially if your calorie intake is too low). Use a calculator like this one to determine about what your calorie intake should be. You can lose UP TO 3 lbs per week in a healthy manner, but 1 - 2 lbs is much more doable and easier to maintain long term. Remember that as your activity level and/or your weight changes, your calorie needs change too. So, check the calculator as your weight goes down or your activity goes up or down, so you continue to consume calories at a level that will help induce fat loss.


    Eat a healthy well-balanced diet at least 80% of the time...keep junk food, fast food, sweets, sodas, etc to a bare minimum (the occasional treat if you feel the need). Avoid as much processed food as you can. Focus on lean protein, fruits and veggies, complex carbs, healthy fats and and plenty of water. Keep your calories at a healthy level when working to lose fat. Cardio exercise is ideal for burning some extra calories. If you don't have an exercise program you want to use, YouTube has TONS of fitness videos you can check out, not to mention just getting outdoors and going for a walk, run, or bike ride.


    When you reach your goal, simply modify your calorie intake and/or exercise to allow you to maintain your weight instead of continuing to lose.
