The basic information required before a weight loss program is one's height and weight that helps us to calculate BMI/Body mass index. The other factors we need to consider are your age, gender and dietary habit (vegetarian/otherwise). We further need to assess your current lifestyle, activity level and nature of work. After taking into consideration all the above, a regimen of dietary restriction, graded exercises and other lifestyle measures need to be incorporated after setting the target for weight loss. With the above information, I can guide you further.
