hi SSK
welcome to HCM,
read your prob, no doubt 108kg weight is mattrr of worry. but you should not bother.
there is no corelation between non vag n milk formation . it can be formed in suufficient amount when mother should take plenty of liquid.
ok n for about weight loss, you should take heavy breakfast, take n dinner as you wish but should take full plate salad before meal. take fiber riched diet. avoid nonvag n fatty diet. statr morning walk.
along with it you should take vitamin C tab once daily.
after this trial you feel you weight is redused within 15 days.

Hello ssk;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you are 108 kgs simple control of diet will not help you and you will need aggressive line of management.Please visit a good gym where there are dietitians and fitness trainers.The dietitian will give you advise regarding diet and the fitness trainer will help you with work out to shed your weight.The main goal will be do burn more calories than you take.Do not get depressed and do regular fitness training.As for the medicine metformin is used in few cases of PCOD and it does help reduce the weight also but it is a drug used for diabetes so it can lower your blood sugar if taken without consulting a Physician.Please concentrate on diet and exercise and better do not take any medicine.
