Hi lybrate-user, to reduce weight it is important to take a well balanced and nutritious diet along with regular exercise. Weight loss is a metabolic process, and body needs carbohydrates, proteins, fats minerals, vitamins and water to execute this process. Drinking only juices and soups, will deprive the body from many of these essential nutrients. So forget weight loss, body won't be able to function properly. As a result there can be deficiencies, weakened immune system, weakness, tiredness and many more undesirable symptoms. There are two pillars for weight loss. Diet and exercise. Thought right diet can control further weight gain and assure overall health, exercise is must for weight reduction. 30 mins walk (to start with), with well-balanced diet (depending on your heath condition) can lead to gradual and healthy weight loss. I would be happy to help you.
