According to the VIM that you have shared seems that you are obese and you need to start working starting with the cardio exercises and for that assistance you need to hit the gym and start working out under guidance of your trainer and only working out alone will not help you need to change your diet habits like avoiding fried foods, fat foods, stored foods, alcohol, junk food.
You may take oatmeal for breakfast and roti with boiled vegetables, salads or sandwiches in the evening, and roti with curry along with one more serving of salads. If you are a non vegetarian you can have three fist full servings of white meat that is chicken.

You need to consult doctor if you have following signs
1. Giddiness
2. Headache
3. Fast heartbeat
4. Sweating
5. Nausea and vomiting
6. Chest pain
7. Difficulty in breathing in work

Take care if your health
