In brief: Weight loss

The time-proven way to lose a little bit of weight quickly is fasting.
Find a meditation center or retreat house that sponsors weekends for such purposes. Drink plenty of water and take a vitamin. Repeated, intermittent 24-hour fasts or partial fasts are good for the soul and do not have significant medical adverse effects. It offers an opportunity to examine the role of weight/food in your life.
