Drastic weight loss

An year back I was 74 kgs and now I am at very low weight 64 kgs. Actually I have chubby cheeks and facial fat. I have done lot of exercises to loose them but couldn't loose them. Last year I consulted a cosmetic doc, he asked me to take a supplement called OBICURE by skipping breakfast to loose fat and all. I used for more than 40 days, my weight decreased to 69 but my facial fat remained the same. Then I stopped taking such supplements. Maintained normal diet. Everything is fine, then I went Delhi for 3 months this April 2016 on work purpose. By the time I came back home, now I am 64 kgs. Lost all the muscles, skinny body, thin legs and hands. Kindly suggest me what can I do to regain my weight and be healthy.

Hi there,

Firstly its never a great idea to go on any supplements on medicines to lose weight as the weight loss might not be sustainable or realistic.The medicine can lead to various other problems,hence please do not go on such medications.You might be skipping meals and hence muscle loss.Also visit a Dr and get few tests done in order to know the reason behind the drastic loss in the weight.
