Brief Answer:
Diet and exercise are the cornerstones in management

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Madam.

I can understand your concern.

Yes, you need to put down a weight of 15 kgs.

But this has to be in a phased manner.

Avoid junk food.

Consume protein-rich, low-calorie food.

Regular physical activity for 15 to 20 min is helpful.

Avoid tomato, cauliflower and cabbage.

Consume Fish, egg and Soya protein.

Fruits like apple and pomegranate are good.

Eat oatmeal for breakfast and dinner.

Avoid fried and fatty foodstuff altogether.

Drink 2-3 LITERS of water every day.

These measures over a period of 6 to 8 months will help you to lose the required weight.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.
