Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Weight loss is only possible with diet and exercise. Contact a nutritionist and calculate your BMI and targeted ideal weight. Then, a daily calorie intake would be prescribed for you, accordingly please get a diet chart made, considering your lifestyle and food choices.

Cardiovascular exercise, at least 30 minutes a day, for at least 5 days a week, should be done. This can include - gymming, skipping, swimming, zumba, aerobic exercises, treadmill, running, jogging etc.

For particular areas, get a trainer who can teach tailor-made exercises for that area. Generally, avoid high carbohydrate or high fat containing food - such as rice, potatoes, oily food, fried food etc.

Take lots of proteins - tell me if you are vegetarian or non vegetarian, so that I can suggest accordingly.

Also, consume at least 1 litre water for every 20 kg of your body weight.

All the best. Hope this helps. Please feel free to discuss further.
