Dear Karishma
If you have to lose 60 kg then I would recommend that you firstly consult a registered dietitian (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area). The dietitian will have to assess what type of slimming diet will be the most suitable (e.g. kJ-reduced or low-fat, low-GI, etc) and if you need to take medications like Xenical to achieve such a pronounced weightloss. Once you start losing weight and become more mobile, you can also add daily exercise to your regimen (going for walks or swimming or cycling) to help with the weightloss. But please first have an assessment by a dietitian, because using the correct slimming diet is essential.
Holding thumbs that you lose those 60 kg.
