2x 18mm and a big bar.  Nothing too special.  Turn the wheel on lock if you want more space.

Best way to lose weight is not drinking mayonnaise/cheese/beer everyday.

Top tip: use a thick screwdriver between the disc and the caliper and pull towards you.  It pushes the caliper back and pushes the piston back for you.  Also confirms the sliders are free.
