Hi doctor,

I am a 20-year-old female. My height is 5 feet 44 inches and I weigh 170 lbs. Actually, I used to take less food only. But, I do not know, how I am getting obese.

One of my friends said that Garcinia cambogia is a good slimming product. So, before using that, I thought of consulting a dietician.

If it is not going to be helpful, then can you suggest other alternative medicine?

Thank you.



Welcome to

You need to have low calorie, low carbohydrate and high protein balanced diet chart for your weight loss.

According to your height, your ideal body weight should be 138 to 143 lbs. Diet and exercise both are important for the weight loss program.

Exercise regularly. Do not give any meal gaping. Meal gaping is one of the reason for your weight gain. Maintain the intake of the foods mentioned in the diet chart. Please share the result after 20 days or a month.

If you have any previous or recent medical report for example thyroid, etc., then do share with me. According to the result, I will do some modification in the diet chart again.

Garcinia Cambogia or any kind of slimming product or health supplement will not work properly without a balanced diet and proper physical exercise.

It is always better to reduce weight by a balanced diet chart to remain fit and healthy.

The following diet chart is suitable for you with standard meal timings. Please follow it properly.

  7. 12.00 PM : Drink one cup of butter milk (200 ml).
  8. 2.00 PM : For lunch, take either of these, three rotis or one cup rice along with 1 bowl mixed vegetable curry plus dal or soya nugget curry one bowl or salad one bowl and one cup curd.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for the reply,

I am living in hostel and I will not have that much food. Morning I used to have paratha, afternoon roti and night I will not have anything.

Sometimes, I used to have egg. What should I do? Is there any other diet plan?



Welcome back to

Try to take food mentioned in the diet chart as much as possible.

Avoid meal gaping as it can lead to weight gain and do not take fried food like paratha every day. Instead of whole egg, you can have egg white daily. You can also modify the timings of the diet according to your work schedule.
