help, I need to lose at least 10 pounds, to 20 max by 1 year 1 and a half year

my body has slow metabolism and other issues that have been making it really hard to lose weight,
I was 185 am now 165, I lost 13 since last Jan,but I have hit a Plateau and I honest to god don't know what to do, I eat healthy, if anything at all -in variety- really, soups , deli meat, cheese and tortilla, black pepper , mustard and hot sauce
occasional soda, maybe 2 liters a month

reason why I need to lose it in this time frame is because 1: how slow it takes my body anyways and 2: I am having surgery
if anyone has any suggestions please let me know, message me

Do you work out? Weight training is great for that (seriously).

Look at your portion sizes. You'd be surprised what a portion size actually is - for instance, 30g cereal is standard. Cut out processed food - deli meat, pre prepared soups and cheeses. They aren't really healthy anyway, and certainly aren't diet foods. A Paleo diet is a good framework for a healthy diet IMO - plus non processed grains and the odd glass of red in moderation.

I do work out, 3-5 days a week, jumping jacks sit ups push ups weights, stationary bike and other things,
what am I supposed to eat then? I do low cal low sodium - my body is sensitive to sodium and I swell like a balloon- and low carb

odd glas of red? is that wine, lol
if so I don't drink

Firsly, if you don't drink - go you. My only weight issues have stemmed from my love of... WINE.
Anyway, that aside. Anything pre-processed is bound to be salty. Especially in America. Low carb isn't really a sound option. Up the veggies and down the rice, but a bit of brown rice did nobody harm.

Try HIIT training. I shifted 23lb with that, and am about to try to shift another 20.

To clarify, I lost 7st via eating disorders a few years ago. I know about weight loss - but I'm trying to pass on information that has helped me in a non crazy setting. Keep it all simple, keep it homemade.

100 Push-ups
100 Sit-ups
100 Squats
Run 10k (6.2 Miles).

Every day!!

I know I jokingly mentioned this workout in One Punch Man, but it is one many people have used and I feel it will help with your goal, it definitely helped me become an iconic hero.

Have you ever tried drinking Keifer? Its helps jump start your metabolism for sure. Its full of healthy cultures any really can help you drop 3-5lbs quick. This might help you get to another level? I drink 12 ounces a day especially if I am going to eat meat for dinner.

Build a sleeping schedule and stick to it, plus circuit training.

Well I know this might sound crazy but in my opinion getting your circadian rhythm in check is way more important for weight loss and overall health than say diet or exercise (Also not saying those aren't important cause they are but a healthy circadian rhythm sets a solid foundation for those things to work with more ease)and there's tons of research backing it up and I mean tons.

Here's some super simple tips that help to get a healthier circadian rhythm

Buy "blue blockers" their glasses that block most of the blue spectrum of light their pretty cheap, I recommend UVEX brand of glasses. Wear them when the sun goes down or 3 hours before you want to go to sleep.

Don't eat at night or eat very little

Eat breakfast

Get out in the sun in the morning to help your body understand it's daytime. Don't wear sunglasses, Theiris something known as the SCN or the suprachiasmatic nucleus and it basically governs our circadian rhythm and informs all the other cells in our body what time it is ,but it needs full spectrum sunlight to do so properly and glasses or all types (even prescription) interfere with it.

When you go to sleep the darker the better so if you can eliminate all lights in the room you sleep in.

Those tips along with eat a diet with as little overly processed foods and some exercise will most likely help you lose weight.

Here is a very good website to dive into just browse and read around he has very good blogs regarding circadian rhythm biology and alot more.

Other useful tips

Eat tons of fish and shellfish like oysters and mussels their way more nutritious than cows and chickens, unless your allergic.

Look around on the internet to see if you have a cryotherapy business in your area and get a session or two every week.

Pretty simple stuff nothing too fancy but yeah that's about it.
