Brief Answer: Proper diet and radio frequency lipolysis Detailed Answer: Hello Welcome to Health Care Magic First and foremost We should know a common term called as Body Mass Index or BMI which is calculated by taking height and weight. BMI is equal to weight in kilograms divided by height in metre square. Normal BMI is 18- 25 Overweight is 25-30 Obese is more than 30 First you need to know where you stand in terms of BMI. Types of obesity: There are many types of obesity in which central obesity involving the abdomen is most common and most XXXXXXX as it is associated with many diseases. Obesity by itself is a risk factor for many diseases and the risk increases when you have associated diseases like diabetes, altered lipid profile. Since all of them are normal in your case no need to worry. Most of the times the cause for obesity is physical inactivity and over consumption of carbohydrates like rice items along with high calorie foods or junk foods. Coming to your question of how to lose weight quickly 1. Proper diet avoiding carbohydrates, fatty foods, junk foods 2. Food at frequent intervals 3. Consumption of fruits and vegetables 4. Avoiding alcoholic drinks like Beer if you are alcoholic, if you are not please ignore 5. Regular exercises in the form of walking, running, playing outdoor games, tread mill.... If you want to reduce weight quickly I can suggest you can go for ultrasound or radio frequency lipolysis. This is helpful for treatment of local collection of fat as in abdomen. But after lipolysis you have to follow the above methods along with regular exercises to maintain it. Hope the information helps With regards Dr. Dadapeer K
