Hello doctor,

I am a 27-year-old male. My height is 5 feet 7 inches, and my weight is 171 Lbs. My friends have suggested that I have lost almost 22 Lbs weight after following a paleo diet. Kindly suggest ways to lose weight and also eat my favorite foods.

Thank you.



Welcome to

I understand your concern and would be happy to help.

Following a particular diet is not a sustainable way to lose weight or stay fit. I suggest you eat what is in your culinary culture. However, you have to eat mindfully. Never overeat or deprive yourself. Also, you can eat your favorite foods and stay in shape by keeping in mind the proportion. Staying active and doing regular exercises is also a must.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.
