Hello doctor,

My son is thirty years old. He is five feet eight inches and weighs 290 pounds. He has been dealing with an obesity problem. Even after reducing his meal quantities, he is unable to lose weight. I would like to know of a diet plan that can help him lose weight. Kindly help


Welcome to

I read your query and can understand your concern.

In his case I recommend that you seek a consultation over the phone and begin calorie tracking by eating nutritious meals.In addition, I require information in order to provide correct medical intervention and a specific food plan. I also recommend a high protein diet that includes almonds, six walnuts a day, veggies, paneer, soya, tofu, lean meat, and eggs. Include chia seeds and flax seeds as well. Begin working out with exercises such as planks, swimming, and basketball. Drink more fluids. Get at least eight to nine hours of sleep every night. Meditation and breathing techniques might help you manage stress.Take modest meal portions by incorporating roughly 1500 kilocalories in your diet with 40 percent carbohydrates, 40 percent protein, 20 percent fat, and an increase in fiber consumption of as much as 30 percent in your diet.

I hope this helps.

Thank you and take care.
