Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My weight is 220 lbs, and my height is 5.3 feet. I am planning to take a diet for weight reduction. Can you help me select a proper diet? I hate broccoli and Western diets. My friend reduced 19 lbs in 25 days by eating chapathi (flat bread), papaya, and 1.5 gallons of water. Please suggest me proper diet.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I thoroughly read your query and understand your concern.

First, you should do a thyroid test. A proper diet with exercise helps you to lose weight. I suggest you a diet chart with alternative foods mentioned below:

In the early morning, have one glass of water. Take a glass of sattu water, sprouts, green tea without sugar, or a biscuit. For breakfast, have a porridge bowl, brown bread, an egg white piece, or a bowl of vegetable soup. In the mid-morning, have an apple, orange, or papaya. Take organic apple cider vinegar 5 mL mixed with a glass of water and take it 30 minutes before lunch. For lunch at 1 PM, have idly (ricecake), dosa (pancake) two pieces or rice with vegetables or a non-vegetarian curry, and curd. For tea time at 4.30 PM, have green tea. For evening snacks, have vegetable or chicken stew or puffed rice with nuts. For dinner at 9 PM, drink two glasses of water. After that, have spinach roti or a cup of rice with vegetable curry half-cup.

Following are my suggestions:

1. Take two glasses of water before lunch and dinner (ten glasses per day).

2. Do light exercise, yoga, a morning walk, or a brisk walk for 30 minutes.

3. Please avoid oily food, junk food, spicy food, chocolates, soft drinks, and alcohol.

4. Avoid stress.

5. If you feel uncomfortable taking apple cider vinegar, then avoid it.

6. Take more fruits and vegetables.

7. Reduce portion size of foods.

Hope this answered your query.

Thanks and regards.
