To get started you need to keep it as simple as possible so here's the 3 things you need to do:
1. Get your calorie target. Put all your details into MFP and you will be given a calorie budget that will include the appropriate calorie deficit.
2. Start to accurately track your food. Get a food scale and weigh everything you eat. No guessing or estimating, we humans generally suck at this. No cups or teaspoons, they're better than guessing but still pretty inaccurate. A scale will cost you about $10 and will be your best friend. Weigh your food, log it in your diary and do your best to stick to your calorie target as often as possible.
3. Eat food you love. Not food you Think you should eat, or food you kinda like. Food you love which is more than likely the same food you're eating now. The difference is you're now gong to weigh that food and make sure you're eating it in a calorie deficit. Forget 'healthy', forget 'clean', forget all that. Just eat whatever foods you enjoy even if they're "junk" so long as you stick to your calorie deficit most of the time.
