You received a letter from your cousin who tells you that he is gaining a lot of weight. Out of concern, you decide to write to him to advise him on how to lose weight.
 
Dear Meng,

I received your letter yesterday. In your letter, you told me that you have put on a lot of weight. You now weigh 75 kg. All your shirts and trousers are too tight now. Your weight gain has made you sluggish and lazy. I'm not surprised that you feel this way.

Well, I have to tell you that you must stop putting on more weight. At your weight now, you are 25 kg overweight. This is going to cause you many health problems.

It is not difficult to get rid of some weight. All you need is to exercise some discipline. You will also need tons of willpower. Follow a strict program of healthy eating and exercise. Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables for they are a rich supply of vitamins, minerals and fiber. At the same time, you have to go easy on foods that are rich in fat and oil. Avoid sweet food like chocolate and cakes. Such food contains a lot of sugar and this will make you gain a lot of weight.

Eating healthy food must be accompanied by good eating habits as well. Take three meals a day at regular times. Eat a low-calorie breakfast. It can be toast and a glass of milk. For lunch, you can have a sandwich and an apple. Cut down on dinner for this is the last meal of the day. You don't need energy to sleep now, do you?

And of course, you need to exercise. Take up walking, cycling or swimming. Exercise burns calories and builds up muscle.

I hope you will follow my advice. It is guaranteed to help you lose weight. Do tell me if you have lost some weight. I am waiting to hear the good news. Take care and God bless.

Your good friend,

     
sluggish   listless, to move or react more slowly than usual
