Weight loss should be gradual and healthy with strict diet control, balanced nutritious meals and regular physical activity.
Prefer foods lower in fats, sugar and calories and higher in fiber. Focus on fruits, green vegetables and whole grains. Regular physical activity, take medicines and have regular doctors visits.
