If you're trying to slim down most of what you're going to need to do is cut unhealthy foods out of your diet, such as sodas and fast food. Sweets too. Fast food is almost always extremely unhealthy, high in saturated fat and trans fat, very calorie-dense, and should thus be avoided by everyone. Soda is extremely calorie-dense, has no nutritional value, and for various reasons, you shouldn't be dumping massive amounts of simple sugars into your system. There is debate over if diet soda is neutral or still bad for you; my suggestion is to limit it, too.

Don't worry as much about eating healthy, just focus on staying away from bad foods. Lean meats, dairy, wheats, fruit, and other things like that taste good. Try and remember, processed foods are bad bad bad. Try and cook for yourself/eat home cooked meals as much as often, as opposed to eating out. There's plenty of recipes on the internet for 'health foods' and such. If you're not willing to go that far, at least be sure that (again) all fast foods/sodas/sweets are cut from your diet.

Good luck!

No problem. If you do give in and decide to go for a coke or some chips or whatever, don't sweat it. A small bit of running, biking, or just about any other physical activity will help keep you healthy and happy.
