Your daughter should be weighing about 53-55 kgs, right now she is carrying about 33 kgs extra weight on her body. This can cause many health problems + also psychological problems/ confidence issues. It is the right time to focus on her health improvement and weight reduction. Usually the whole family must work as a team to solve this problem. It will not work if she is forced to go on a diet while rest of the family eats rich food. Try to have the whole family switch to healthy eating habits plus some regular exercise, walk etc. Consult a dietician who can customise a diet for her. Avoid short cut methods, medicines etc because there is no shortcut to health. Aim for 2-3 kgs redcution per month, and in one years time she can get back to being healthy and fit. Encouragement and appreciation for her efforts will help her in the journey.
