hi,thanks for query.Please understand that no crash diet can help.They only help till you take then,once you are back to routine you will gain all the lost weight .Please have a proper diet planning which you can follow on regular basis.Have more fruits and salads in your diet,avoid cheese,cold drinks,any form of snacks or junk food etc.Do regular exercise for about 30 minutes a day.Weight loss can not be achieved over night,you have to work hard.
wishing you good health,all the best.

Hi Charley,
Welcome to HCM.

Charley your diet of 700 Kcal is not enough, u need to have atleast 1500 Kcal per day even when your on diet. Important think is to do exercises regularly without break. see that you give one and half an hour for your exercise, may not be dancing you could do spot jogging for half an hour and brisk walk for another hour. If you go for dancing or gym then you need to continue regularly or else you would be double the weight when you stop. So, you need to reduce in healthy and scientific way. Eat wel and exercise wel then you wil stay healthy and energetic.
