You need to first cut down your diet by25%. -take hot sugar free drinks. -eat salads and fruits when hungry in between meals. -start working out for 30 minutes everyday.

1. Lose weight. 2. Cut the sugar. 3. Stock up on fiber. Instead of consuming sugar and other refined carbohydrates, focus on more fiber-rich foods, such as vegetables, fruits and whole grains. 5. Eat a moderately low-fat diet. 6. Watch the type of fat you eat. Cut back on saturated fats, which are found in red meat, poultry fat, butter, cheese, milk, and coconut and palm oils, and keep trans fats, found in shortening and stick margarine, to a minimum. Replace trans fats with healthier polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. 7. Add omega-3 fatty acids. 8. Exercise. 9. Limit alcohol. 10. Take triglyceride-lowering drugs.

Hye. Thanks for the query. There’s no overnight fix when it comes to healthy weight loss, but you can adjust your lifestyle to promote quick, natural weight loss for the benefit of your health and your appearance. Successful, long-term weight management needs to focus on more than the food you eat and the pounds you lose. It needs to focus on your overall health. Reshape your body and your lifestyle by adopting healthy habits and breaking unhealthy ones. Replace all processed foods in your diet with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean meats, eggs, legumes, nuts, seeds and seafood. Focus on the variety of whole, unprocessed foods you can eat instead of dwelling on the junk food you eliminated from your diet. Eat smaller portions at every meal and avoid going back for seconds. Take a smaller scoop of rice,  half of a piece of chicken instead of a whole piece and one less egg in your morning omelet, for example. Make time for breakfast every morning. Eating breakfast helps prevent overeating and is a habit of people who successfully lose weight. Pack to-go meals instead of eating convenience foods when you’re not home. Store foods like chopped fruits and vegetables or cooked grains, legumes, eggs and meats in your refrigerator so you always have something to grab when you’re in a rush. Buy fresh vegetables and fruits from the grocery store if you forget to bring healthful food from home. When you can’t avoid dining at a restaurant, opt for a salad as a starter, and always ask for the dressing on the side. Clear soups, lean meats, seafood and grain-based dishes like roti, whole grain bread are other good choices. Exercise for 30 to 60 minutes at least three times per week to build muscle and burn more calories. Pilates, strength training, aerobics, swimming, dancing and yoga or a sport like football are ideal choices. If you’re new to exercising, start with brisk walking and jogging. Adopt physically demanding hobbies like bicycling, hiking, jogging, power walking to promote faster weight loss. If you don’t have time for new hobbies, increase your physical activity with things like walking the dog, playing with the kids or jogging instead of driving to a nearby store or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Weigh yourself weekly and record your weight. Adjust your diet and physical activity according to the progress you’re making.

Please give me a list of high calorie foods to increase my body weight And I want a suggestion from you to increase my weight.

1. Protein is the key for the muscle building. Without adequate protein, muscle gain and growth is not possible because weight training demands for amino acids (which comes from protein). You should daily eat about 2.2g of protein per kilogram of your weight. For example, if you are 50kg, then you should eat 50x2.2=111g of protein spread over 5-6 meals in the day. Include high protein foods in your diet. Your protein intake should be from foods rather than from supplements. Good protein foods: beans, soybeans, whey, fish, dairy products (low fat variety), meats, nuts and seeds (almonds, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds), peanut butter. Many of these are easy digestible foods. Milk is one of the best muscle foods. The milk contains two high quality proteins, about 80 percent whey and 20 percent casein. Whey is quickly broken down into amino acids and absorbed into the bloodstream. Whey is very good to consume after workout. Casein is digested more slowly and provides the body with a steady supply of protein for a longer period of time. Cheese is concentrated milk, so it is high in protein and calcium, fat and cholesterol. Include healthy skim yogurt in your diet, which can give you as much as 120 calories. 2. Eat custard apple (saripa, sitaphal) to put on some weight. This fruit is high in calorie. 3. Healthy fats: avoid fatty foods. Most mothers, especially in india give too much ghee or butter to their children, thinking they will put flesh fast. But ghee is mostly saturated fat which is not a healthy fat for any body. Healthy fats are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids. Good fats: cold pressed oils (olive, sunflower, linseed, canola). 4. Drink pure fruit juice. It is full of sugar and added nutrients so it is a healthy and nutritious way to gain some pounds. 5. Complex carbohydrates are also needed for gaining weight. Corn bread is also full of carbohydrates, one piece gives approximately 328 calories. Potatoes are rich sources of carbohydrates and complex sugars, eat baked or as grilled potatoes. Pasta is a calorie rich cereal carbohydrates. 6. Eat bananas. These are rich in carbs and nutritious, one banana contains approximately 100 calories. 7. Some people think that drinking beer helps, but it is not true, it accumulates in your abdomen, making it fatty. 8. Don't take protein supplements for gaining muscles. 9. Non vegetarian foods some of the non-vegetarian foods that help increase weight are given below: 1. Red meat 2. Pork, 3. Fish: eat two portions of salmon, or tuna every day. 4. Shrimps: the nutrients and necessary acid content present in shrimps gives healthy calories.- 5. Chicken breast chicken breast, is supposed to be the healthiest and non-fat part which has approximately 78 calories for each serving. 6. Whole eggs: eggs are loaded with protein, vitamins a, d and e.

This is the main problem now seeing in many patients who are working in night shifts. Loss of sleep is one of the reason for many psychosomatic disorders. Sleep is very essential to us with minimum of 5-6 hrs in a sound manner. Disturb sleep causes loss of appetite, tiredness, lack of concentration, mild headache to severe, hair loss mood swings etc. Most people who are having above mentioned disorders doesn't require any medicines at all. Properly compensating their sleep on daytime can solve those disorders. For reducing belly exercise and good homoeopathic medicines are there.

Sources of iron. Jeggery, rice flax, lotus stem, bajara, red meat. Add these food group in your routine diet. Add lemon in your diet. Lemon juice is rich source of vit c which help you to increase absorption of iron. Methi, milk and milk product are very good source of calcium.

My weight is 65kg and height is 5'2" and age is 26. I want a diet chart to reduce my weight. I want that my weight should be on between 50-55 kg but it looks impossible for me.

PGDD, RD, Bachelor of Home Science

Anything is possible. ..all you need is a positive and disciplined approach. Eat small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps in between meals. Avoid junk as far as possible. Exercise at least 4 times a week. Lastly be committed. Remember it's a lifestyle change and not a one time thing. It's a balanced intake that will last you longer. All the so called diets will only give you muscle and bone loss. The fats will remain as it is. So, try to first follow this seemingly simple tips. I am sure it will at least help you with initial fat loss.

Best thing is medicines of ayurveda prepared with kumar kalyan rasa as one of the major components. However, prawal, mukta, sudhasaptak etc will show you results in eight to twelve weeks and is safe. Some liquids will also have to be given. These medicines are for small children specifically.

Hello Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. b. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. c. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. d.

Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients.

How often do you hear this? ?I think I've put on weight; I need to slim down? - and this could lead to frantic discussions on ways to somehow shed those extra pounds. Working out at the gym for long hours, training our taste buds to eat only healthy - you might have already tried all these and more to come back to good shape. Now, how about adding something that?s natural, has no side effects, is extremely easy and hardly takes 15-20 minutes of your day? Meditation; a simple yet powerful technique. Wondering how something related to the mind can have anything to do with shedding pounds and kilos? Let?s see how meditation helps you lose weight naturally: 1 Lower Your BMR Effortlessly If you are on a weight-control program, you might be keeping a regular check on your body?s basal metabolic rate (BMR). By knowing your BMR, you can reduce calorie intake, in turn reducing body weight. When you meditate, your body?s BMR reduces. By practicing yoga and meditation, assimilation improves and desire for calorie-rich food decreases. So you feel hungry but are satisfied with lesser quantities of food. This has a more long-term effect on the body weight. Even if you are not able to exercise for some days, you won?t start gaining weight suddenly Boost Your Commitment Have you noticed how easy it is to fall prey to the threats of your weight- loss program? Sleep, junk food, sweets ? all of these have the power to make you drop out of your weight-control plan very easily. This is a check on your commitment where meditation can help. Daily meditation practice helps strengthen your intention to lose weight so that you become more committed to exercising, following a moderated diet and other healthy practices. Beat the stress & Hog On To Veggies The next time you gorge on chocolates or anything junk, observe for a while why you are doing this? Are you stressed for some reason (at work or home)? Stress in the mind has a direct impact on the tendency to keep snacking at odd times. This gives temporary relief from stress. Yet when you meditate, you release deeply stored stress in the system naturally. It?s a much healthier way to beat stress and also to stay in perfect shape. Add Hours To Your Clock To Implement Your Weight-loss Strategy If time is stopping you from working towards weight control, your all time solution ? ?meditation? will help you find more time in the day! And to meditate, you only need 15-20 minutes a day. That of course can be easy to squeeze out anytime of the day as per your convenience, isn?t it? After all, your body does deserve at least 20 minutes of your time. And when your work efficiency increases with meditation, you can finish all your work in less time and also find more time to plan out your weight-loss strategy. for treatment and diet chart for weight loss consult privately..
