I'm 180 pounds at the age of 32 with 5'6" feet tall. According to the physician, my weight is beyond normal and needs to cut the required weight for my age and height. I need to cut down at least 140 lbs. But the problem is how can lose weight without harming my health? How can I achieve this weight safely?
