In brief: Weight

Dietary restriction and exercise is the first thing to do eating high-protein and low carbohydrates is appropriate.
Your mother should also be evaluated by her family doctor and have routine lab work done such as thyroid function studies to help determine whether or not there may be a metabolic cause to her being overweight as well as her inabilityto lose weight
