How to loose weight fast!

Hi, I really need to loose 15 kilos as fast as i can. I'm usually an active and healthy person but have put on 15 kilos since my dad passed away last year. I had a miscarriage one month ago and really want to get back to a healthier weight and start to feel good about myslef again.

Any tips on shifting the first five kilos fast to get me into the swing of things?

The Yoga Pranayam (breathing exercises) will  help you relax and also help with the weight reduction, only if you are over-weight.
Build up your timing gradually. If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after 1 minute.
One week after you have built up your timing to maximum you can start watching the weight go down.Drink plenty of warm water.
Bhastrika - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose. Duration upto 5 minutes.

Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and hold your head steady. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Age over 15 years -do this for 20 to 30  minutes twice a day(maximum 60 minutes in one day).
Age under 15 years -do this for 5 to 10  minutes twice a day(maximum 20 minutes in one day).

Anulom Vilom –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril  
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril  
then -keeping the left nostril closed  deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Age over 15 years -Repeat this cycle for 20 to 30  minutes twice a day(maximum 60 minutes in one day).
Age under 15 years -Repeat this cycle for 5 to 10  minutes twice a day(maximum 20 minutes in one day).
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.

Bhramri Pranayam -Close eyes. Close ears with thumb, index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee.
Duration : 5 to 12  times

Once you have achieved your target, continue the pranayam once a day.
Be patient, as the benefits will show over a period of months.Only by doing you will benefit
and feel good because you are helping your body.Those who say I have tried everything....
will be amazed at the result of doing pranayam.

There are lots of things that help in losing weight but I would definately not encourage fast as you will just gain it back later.

Drink minimum 3 litres of water daily, most fruits and vegetables, small portion meals, no late night meals, low fat diet focusing only on the good fats (HDL). Also, as you must know, exercise mainly cardiovascular minimumb 45 min as the longer you do cardio the more % of fat you are burning.
