Ok, ok there's a bit more to it than that, but that's the basics right there!
Know The Basics
You need to know how much you currently eat, how much energy you currently exert and then figure it out from there. Do that simple task first, don't over-complicate things.
Whatever you decide to do to increase your energy output, make sure it's something you enjoy and can sustain. For example, don't go from doing just 3,000 steps a day to trying to do 10k a day! Take baby steps! Not literally obviously! 😁
Increase your steps or energy output little by little and eventually start considering that half marathon. 😉
Same goes with your nutrition, don't try and change everything straight away there either! Going cold turkey and trying to survive on celery sticks and apples isn't going to work long term!
Instead, reduce your calories, eat as much protein and complex carbs (foods high in fibre) as possible, drink loads of water and be consistent with it.
Most importantly, be patient! It's a slow process, but it's also a worthwhile one. 👍
