General Physician,
Sir, I am physically challenged person, I was looking fat how to become lean sir?
You need to have a diet and exercise plan based on your BMI, age & weight and sex, presence of any diseases. There are matters to be discussed privately. Comprehensive exercise& diet plan based on whether vegetarian /non vegetarian can be given if you ask privately. May also need to do some tests. Weight reduction can be achieved only by reducing the intake of food 1/3 of what you take now. And by appropriate exercise plans to burn off fat. Some tips 1) Drink three or four cups of water whenever you feel hungry and just before eating food 2) Take boiled or raw vegetable like cucumber, carrot etc. as half of your diet. Then take of your total as sprouted pulses / proteinaceous food like roti, cooked pulses and remaining with rice or other carbohydrates. Oil or ghee etc. should be just bare minimum. The most important is to burn off the energy intake by exercises. There is no short cut or medicines without exercise. The food we eat is utilised for our energy needs and the remaining will be stored as fat which leads to obesity. It is better to do some tests.

Muscle growth and weight gain should happen naturally with diet and healthy physical activity. You can consider mild to moderate work out in gym. But many gym s suggest health drinks and other formulations, which are not recommended and in fact can turn out to be harmful, so kindly avoid those. Also consider your parents and grandparents weight and height, some times genetic things are way beyond control.

Hello. Don't we all get frustrated seeing people eating so much and still not gaining while even drinking water seems to be adding in our weight? well, I understand your concern, but eating less can decrease your metabolism that makes it difficult to reduce weight. Eat healthy foods but eat in every two hours and work out, this will surely work. Take more green tea (sugar free and take it 5-6 times a day) but also work out for atleast 45 minutes daily. You will see results. If you go for medicinal ways, you might gain more as a sid effect, your skin might turn bad. Try loosing with the mentioned method and do not give up, it can take 3 months of vigorous exercise and strict diet to show results but do nit give up. Some people do not loose weight easily but take it as a challenge. Also, get a thyroid test done if you are gaining unnecessarily.
