Tabata - google it, briefly shown that short duration high intensity exercise is way more efficient. combine that with some intermittent fasting like 16/8 and a Paleo diet. Works for me.

I have had success with using fruit to cut my sugar cravings. Other thing is are you eating because you are bored or are you actually hungry? I dont like fasts or cleanses personally and just eat a grape rather than a bit of chocolate.

Everyone is different. In this respect, I recommend trying a couple N=1 experiments where for a couple weeks, you limit fruit and increase your starchy vegetable consumption, and then try the opposite for a couple weeks.

8 or more alcoholic drinks a week will hamper your weight loss. Trust me I live in Beervana and I had a heck of time cutting beer out. Once I did I feel better and the weight loss is about 3 lbs a week.
