How can I put this delicately?

A friend of mine wants to get into gymnastics. I'm concerned though because, she's really not fit for it.
She's 5'4'' and weighs 200 pounds. And with all due respect, she has a poor diet which makes her gassy. She drinks soft drinks, eats hot dogs and other gas inducing foods. And she's made some noise (farting) when she walks, but I ignore it out of politeness. I don't want her to get embarrassed by enrolling in a gymnastics course, but I don't know how to approach her. She'd have a better chance if she cut down on junk and lost weight. I'm also worried that she might strain or hurt herself.



Do I tell her what I think?

--OR--

Do I let her learn the hard way?

Any other tips would be appreciated.
