I am a 30-yr-old housewife. My height is 5’2” and I weigh 72 kg. I joined a gym a month ago and I am vegetarian. Can you please suggest a proper diet which will help me lose weight? I would be very thankful.

Dolly, you really need to loose about 18-20 kgs as you are overweight. It’s good that you’ve started working out, as you will be able to reduce weight faster by exercising and dieting.

Early morning (7 am): 1 Fruit + 1 glass of skim milk.

Breakfast (10 am): Oats(4 tbsp)/ Wheat flakes/ museli(6 tbsp) in skimmed milk / 1 bowl Dalia/1 bowl upma/poha.

Lunch (1 pm): 2 roti(dry) + 1 bowl green veg + 1 bowl salad+1 bowl dal +1 bowl skimmed curd +100 gm skim paneer/soya paneer.

Pre-workout (3 pm): 1 slice of wheat bread / egg sandwich + 1 glass of skimmed milk as coffee/tea.

Post-workout (5 pm): 1 khakara/2 digestive buiscuits/ dry bhel + 1 bowl curd/ butter milk.

Dinner (8.30 pm): 1 roti(dry) + 1 bowl green veg + 1 bowl salad+1 bowl dal + 100 gm skimmed paneer/ soya paneer.
