Patient discussion about kilogram

Q. My friend is on a crash diet and is determined to lose 10 kilograms in a month. My friend is on a crash diet and is determined to lose 10 kilograms in a month. She either eats very little or nothing at all. She doesn’t even drink enough of fluids and her skin has become sallow. She complains of stomach pain every now then. The worst part is that, she has started getting depressed and refuses to have a bath also for two days at a stretch. I was wondering if all these symptoms were due to her poor diet. Can someone please suggest how I may help her regain her original state of mind?

A. This is very common in women and your friend should have a regular meal intake with a well- balanced diet. Foods rich in vitamins and minerals can sustain the body and improve memory problems. A diet with plenty of fish is not fattening and the same goes for any white lean meat. Amino acids are also necessary in such cases but additives should be avoided.

Q. I want to lose minimum 10 kilograms in 2 month. What type of diet, exercise should I choose to achieve it? I have my farewell party after two months and I want to lose minimum 10 kilograms within this period. I don’t want to diet unnecessarily and lose on my health without any knowledge in dieting. I have to make it fast this time as I have already missed two months. What type of diet and exercise should I choose to achieve my desired result?

A. I cannot say much about exercises but you can start with cabbage soup diet before choosing any exercise and diet plan. This is a good and a quick way to lose weight. After a week of cabbage diet you must stop it and follow a balanced diet for a week with cabbage soup diet. You can start your exercise during the mid of this week. By another week you can stop the cabbage diet and carry on with the balanced diet and exercise. I have tried this way and it did help me in losing weight.
