Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your problem I can see that the most you are concerned about your weight and want to get fit which is a very good effort .To start with set small goals . A deficit of anywhere of 3500 Kcal is leading to weight loss of 1 Kg . So we can set a target of creating a deficit of 250 Kcal per day to start with .

I advise you to take lots of water and fibre XXXXXXX diet . Add whole grains to your diet rather then refined foods that raise the glycemic index .

Take food every 3 hours which will keep your BMR high .

Aerobic exercise to be done for 30 mins 5 days a week .

Keep your spirits high .

Take care.
