Hi there!

If you are aiming at losing weight, it is important to calculate your current BMI and the target BMI. The target BMI should be in a healthy range. The key is to follow a healthy diet plan with a balanced amount of physical activity. A healthy diet should consist of adequate calories according to ones height, weight and physical activity; with adequate amounts of carbohydrates, proteins, little fat and plenty of fruits and vegetables to supply vitamins and minerals. Start with a healthy breakfast, moderate lunch and light dinner. Also keep a track of calorie intake and your work out. At the gym you can begin with light work such as using a treadmill or a cross-trainer. Gradually you may increase the work load. Best results can be obtained with rotating between various activities. You may seek professional help of a dietician or a trainer for the same.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
