Dear Bell
To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). I am not in favour of diet pills and potions which all have negative side-effects and cost a lot of money. Eating a diet that is too restricted is also counterproductive because this tends to switch off your weight loss systems - your body conserves energy in view of the starvation it is facing. Any exercise such as taebo or even just going for brisk walks for 30 min a day will assist with weight loss and firm up your body.
Good luck
