Hi, Thanks for your query.
Weight reduction must involve proper diet and exercise. Exercise is very important . Unless she is physically unable to exercise due to an injury, she should exercise on a regular basis. What the dietician has said seems to be inaccurate.
Have a healthy life.

Dear Anonymous,
An obese lady,35 years old 120 kg.The reason she is obese are either hypothyroidism or overeating and no exercise or both.Kindly get her thyroid function test done and get back to me with the reports.I will suggest the line of treatment.And yes, by exercising or sweating you will not increase weight but if there is some other problem like heart/kidney you may have complications.If there is any other problems please report that also.
