  1. Hello,
    Welcome to medimetry.
    Thanks for the query.

        Pay close attention to your food choice.

    ·        Eat less carbohydrate food sources like chapatti, rice, noodles, pasta, bread etc as they help in gaining weight and storing fat.

    ·        While having lunch or dinner eat vegetables and dal to fill your stomach rather eating lots of chapattis or rice.

    ·        Have a healthy breakfast like poha, idli, upma, plain dosa, oats, dalia or khichdi with vegetables.

    ·        Eat a balance diet including good quality proteins like: fish, lean chicken and eggs. If you are a vegetarian then include skimmed milk, low fat paneer, butter milk, soy bean or soy milk in your diet.

    ·        Avoid ghee, butter or vanaspati. Prepare your diet with vegetable oil like sunflower, safflower soybean or olive oil.

    ·        Eat plenty of salads.

    ·        Eat fresh fruits including apple, orange, pineapple, papaya, sweet lime, berries, guava, watermelon, mask melon etc.

    ·        Avoid eating outside junk and fried foods like pizza, pasta, roll, burgers, cakes, chocolates and cookies.

    ·        Have an early dinner. The earlier the better, giving your system more time to digest the food.

    ·        Avoid cold drinks/alcohol as they add empty calories to your diet.

    ·        Avoid fat enriched milk products like cheese, sweets, full fat cream etc.

    ·        Drink 3 liters of water in a day.

    ·        Try to have less sugar in food and beverages.

    ·        Try to drink 2 cups of green tea in a day as green tea helps in weight loss by aiding digestion.

    ·        Avoid red meat like mutton, beef, lamb or pork.

    ·        Eat sprouts or roasted chana, whenever you feel hungry.

    Exercise daily for at least 30 minutes.

    Hope this helps.
    Take care!!
