Hi You need to strengthen your muscles. Start with endurance training Go for a regular walk. Gradually increase the speed. If possible do cycling and swimming. Do strengthening exercise at least three times a week. You can go to gym or use your own body weight to strengthen muscles. Team sports is good for you Right diet is equally important. Eat three good balanced meals. Eating a good meal 30 minutes after work out helps in building muscles.

Can I replace a protein shakes like nestle resource for dinner to get better result on my weight loss?
Hi Protein shake can'€™t replace the real food. Eating the right real food helps in better weight loss. Instead of protein shake try lentil soup and steamed vegetables for dinner. This will definitely help.

Hi To bring ldl, tgl down and to increase good cholesterol HDL, you should eat omega 3 rich foods like walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds and fish. You should avoid sugars, refined and fried foods. Coconut oil and ghee are good for cooking. Raw coconut is also good as it contains healthy fats. Avocado is very good for you. Avoid dairy products One whole egg everyday is ok. Banana small one a day is ok Avoid white rice. Instead eat brown rice/ millets.
