Fad diets rarely work. You need to find a diet that you can stick to permanently.
The first thing you need to do is look at what you're eating now and start adjusting that. If you take it in steps it can be easier to stick with it.
Things like chocolate, crisps, fizzy drinks, cakes, and chips are bad and need to be cut back drastically.
Unfortunately beer is very high in calories and should be cut back.
After you look after that the next thing to look at is portion sizes. Most people's idea of a portion and what a portion actually is are completely different. Most people find that reducing carb quantities (potatoes, rice, pasta) and upping veg (broccoli etc) works to lose weight and is something that can be done relatively easily.
The other thing that can be done is to not use premade jars of sauces or processed food of any kind. Just make your own.
The important thing is to examine your current diet and make the necessary changes. It doesn't have to be all at once. You'd be surprised at the difference in just making some simple changes.
Have a read of the stickies there should be plenty of info there to keep you going.
As for exercise, find something that you like. You're more likely to stick wth it. As you get fitter you can get more adventurous.
