I do feel losing 15 kg in 3 months is unrealistic if you plan to do this healthily. I've lost 15 kg but it has taken me 12 months. However, it hasn't been an onerous task, whereas diets I've done in the past have been.

This time, I changed my life style as well as my eating habits. I haven't cut out chocolate altogether, and I cut it down gradually (which is why it's taken 12 months). I found that the craving for it dissolved over time, and now I rarely eat it.

My tips would be:
Use a smaller plate/dish
Don't cut everything out, but anything you crave, such as chocolate, use as a treat say once a week e.g. Friday night is chocolate night!
Don't bother with low fat stuff. I've gone back to butter, full fat yoghurt, cheese etc.(more on that later)
Eggs, despite what's been said in the past, are GOOD for you
Start cooking for yourself
Cut out processed food, convenience meals, and take aways and replace with fruit (fresh, tinned or frozen), nuts, veg, real fish, real meat.

Interestingly I've found my craving for all things sweet dropped greatly due to replacing it with fruit and nuts

My appetite has also dropped - smaller stomach obviously, but even more so since I went back to full fat yoghurt, butter etc. According to the nutritionist at work, that's to be expected as this fills you up for longer

Exercise doesn't mean you having to be a gym bunny, or run marathons - neither of which I like. My exercise has been walking, walking walking. This doesn't necessarily mean going hiking. Use stairs rather than lifts and escalators, before you jump in the car or on a bus ask yourself "Is it a distance I can walk?"

Record what you eat daily. I don't want to push any particular piece of software, but the MedHelp Diet Diary has kept me on the straight and narrow. Not only the daily recording, but after a while you get a worm in your head which say "If you eat this, you'll have to record in at the end of the day". That in itself helps to stop me over-eating and eating rubbish

After the first few weeks I really haven't found this "diet" difficult

Hello there, i'd suggest you eat less in each and every meal, for example: on lunch you eat one full plate of whatever you have cooked, you can cut this quantity by half. Another thing, you can make lots of salads that are healthy and satisfying, this way you won't consume as much calories as you usually do. This also affects your mood and the your energy through the day. Also try avoiding alcohol drinks/ soft drinks.. And try not to eat too much sweets. You can still eat chocolate. However, try to eat less of it day by day until you become used to eating such a small amount which  won't harm :)
