One cannot lose 10 kgs in 1 month even if you are starving. One can lose maximum of 3-5 kgs depending on how obese the body is. Your height and weight looks perfect. But yes you may have some body fat which you can lose by 1. Exercise at least 5 times per week 2. Eat whole/unprocessed foods at regular intervals, while being aware of physical hunger/fullness cues 3. Sleep 7-9 hours per night 4. Don’t engage in extreme diets 5. Stay consistent with your habits 6. Incorporate non-exercise physical activity 7. Ignore food advertising You need a fat loss diet which comprises of whole grains like jowar, bajra, wheat, brown rice, pulses like moong, musoor, bengal gram, lots of vegetables, fruits, eggs, fish, chicken, paneer, healthy oil, nuts and seeds. You need to eat them in right proportion. Avoid eating sugar and sweets, refined foods like maida, noodles pasta, White rice and products, bread. Drink a lot of water.

As per your height, your weight should be 60 kg. Here are some tips: 1. Increase physical activity level- brisk walk + kapalbhati daily for 1 hr, take stairs instead of lift, walk instead of hiring transport 2. Drink 3 litres water daily 3. Replace simple carbs like potato sugar, sabudana refined grains (white rice, white bread, maida, noodles, biscuit, cake) with complex carbs- whole fruits, vegetables, whole grains (atta, dalia, suji, oats, barley, jowar, brown rice, atta bread), whole legumes (chana, moth, mung gota, rajma, soybean) 4. Have 6-8 small meals daily instead of 3-4 large ones 5. Eat slowly & chew your food well. 7. Avoid junk/ processed/ packaged/ fried/ sugary foods, soft & hard drinks, ice cream, sweets, chocolates, glucose, energy drinks.

First of all avoid too much oily and spicy foods. Eat lots of watery vegetables, whole fruits. Use unrefined foods. Use small amount of healthy fat in cooking. Use protein as fat burner. Use lukewarm water after meals. Drink lots of water specially before meals. Avoid fast food, junk foods, sugar, sweetened juice. Avoid smoking, alcohol. Eat small amount of food but do not skip meals. Take food 5-6 times with small amount.

You're not pregnant. Cryptic pregnancy is when woman is unaware of being pregnant, as she has no symptoms to suspect 2 has bits of periods every month and despite all of above baby keeps growing up to 9 months! in your case urine test is negative. Ct scan though not recommended during suspected pregnancy because of radiation risks was done for you and it shows, normal uterus. Hcg test in blood done but shows a reading of less than 0.1 units need to be ignored. Take better care of your future. If you don't want to get pregnant use proper precautions like oral contraceptive or intra uterine devices, as every time you suspect something taking emergency pills is not safe for health of a woman. Emergency doesn't mean routine intake of these medicines labelled as to use it during emergency only.

Hello, Follow the below points for gaining weight sensibly, which will also boost up your immunity and help you to reduce the oily skin too: When eating just doesn't appeal to you, there are some tricks of the trade that can help stimulate your appetite. Taking a little walk before eating is one of the many ways to help fire up your appetite. When you are not hungry, choosing your favorite comfort foods may help. So can jazzing up foods with spices and herbs to enhance flavor. Liquids, including water, can fill you up. So drink liquids separately to help make room for nourishing foods. The sweet taste of fruit can rouse your appetite, especially when blended into an easy-to-tolerate smoothie. Foods That Pack a Punch: Foods highest in calories and nutrients are foods with fats, especially plant fats. Plant fats such as nuts, peanuts, seeds, peanut butter, almond butter, avocados, and oils are great sources of healthy fats loaded with nutrients and calories. Animal fats provide nutrients and the same amount of calories as plant fats, but they also contain saturated fats, which can increase LDL (bad) cholesterol. Eat nuts by the handful or sprinkle them on top of soups, salads, cereal, desserts, and casseroles for added protein, fiber, healthy fat, and calories. Granola, loaded with nuts and dried fruits, is a concentrated source of nutritious calories. Dried fruits are a concentrated source of calories that can be tossed on salads, yogurts, cereals, desserts. Potatoes are a great vehicle for toppings. Or, when you cook potatoes, add in flavored oils, milk, cheese, chili, vegetables, and beans. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Calc. Phos. 1M/ one dose followed by Five Phos. and Alfaalfa Tonic - thrice daily for 1 month. Revert me back.
