I do what feels right for me. I take a 40 minute walk almost every day, part of the walk is up a big hill, and in the 6 months I've been doing that (since lockdown) I can now walk up the hill at a decent pace and not even get winded.

I watched my weight, it dropped initially then went back up as I gained muscle, but the real telling factor was that I needed to put a couple extra notches in my belt because my waist was slimming down so much.

I recently took up an interesting practice - eat out of a bowl, not a plate. A bowl limits the amount that gets otherwise piled on to a plate, and I feel quite full after just a bowl of food. And this isn't some gigantic mixing bowl! It's about the size of my hand.

I also changed how I store things in the fridge. This may seem to have little to do with eating healthy, but I arranged my fridge so that the foods that spoil quickly (fruits, veggies, greens mainly) are on the top shelf - the "must eat very soon" shelf.

The two other shelves are arranged "with should eat within a week or so" and "the stuff that lasts".

So, simply by changing how things are arranged in my fridge, I discovered I'm eating more non-meat things, which has the side-effect of reducing calorie intake and quite frankly improving nutritional value.
