In brief: Diet & exercise

Make sure you exercise at least 90 minutes a day, don't skip meals, avoid soda, juice, dairy, alcohol and fried foods.
Eat a healthy well balanced diet! also water, organic vegetable broth, green leafy vegetables, natural pickles, apples are great to fill you up so you dont feel hungry and they are very low in calories.

In brief: See her doctor

That is a lot of weight to lose in such a short time.
If you have this much weight to lose then you certainly need medical supervision. There is no over the counter answer to this without a doctor's involvement because of safety issues.
