    Drink 4-5 big glasses water at room temperature, ..early in the morning, before sunrise, on an empty stomach.Then immediately sit on a static/mobile bike and cycle for 30-35 minutes.This bike must be placed in an open area(such as verandah of your house)
    After this exercise, avoid eating/drinking anything(except water in thirst) for minimum 1 hour*

    *If you don't have a static/mobile bike, you may opt for brisk morning walk in a green area, such as a park, or even opt for swimming

    If you have to reach a place which is within 1-3 km. from your home, prefer walking down to that place in flat slippers, or walking shoes, or else cycle to that place.Avoid using cars, bikes, etc to reach any place, unless the distance is really too large.

    Have your dinner daily before sunset.Eat a big plate of ONLY fresh raw fruits and vegetables like papayas, cucumbers, guavas,

    oranges,
    beetroots, musk melon, watermelon, carrots, papaya, etc.

    Cut them in big pieces immediately before eating.Don't add any salt or flavors to them.

    Do the above religiously.Then you are sure to lose weight.

    Tour lunch and breakfast can be normal but healthy(not on high calories)

    Good luck!

    One of the things so many people struggle with is obesity. And I think part of the reason is that we've never been taught the quality and importance of good nutrition. One calorie is not the same as another calorie. Although they both measure the same, but there is such a difference in the way the body processes it.

    For instance, 1 Big Mac is 540 calories. For roughly under 500 calories, you can have for breakfast 1/2 cup of fat-free cottage cheese and 1 hard boiled egg. For lunch, you can have 3 ounces of grilled chicken and 3 cups of greens. For dinner, you can have 15 large boiled shrimps and 1 cup of steamed broccoli. It's the same amount of calories. Eat Good. Feel good. Look Good. It’s your life! Get to living.

    Losing weight is actually easy, if the total number of calories burned per day is higher than the total number of calories consumed per day, one will definitely lose weight. But the calorie intake shouldn't go below 1200 a day for women and 1800 a day for men.

    Now it depends on you, whether you want to lose fat or the overall body weight. Sometimes people follow a GM diet ( eating only fruits/veggies etc ) or other low calorie diet to lose weight within a short period of time. Such people end up losing their hard earned muscle and water weight. As a result they become weak and fail to get their expected body shape.

    So, in order to lose body fat and earn a really great body you must follow a protein rich diet. As protein intake increases metabolism and keeps you fuller it helps you lose weight. The DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight.

    I have lost 10 kgs of body weight naturally and here's how I did it -

    1. Use the Calorie Calculator to find out how much calories you actually need everyday to lose a significant amount of weight.

    2. Now that you know your exact calorie goal, try to get those from the healthiest sources possible and plan your meals accordingly. You can also log your food and count the calories here - Calorie Counter - MyFitnessPal - Android Apps on Google Play

    3. Eat breakfast to jump start your metabolism. For me oatmeal worked the best, the other healthy options are - whole wheat/multi grain bread with peanut butter or low fat cheese, omelet with veggies, oatmeal prepared with water/milk and fruits etc.

    4. Eat small frequent meals (every 2-3 hours).

    5. Try to drink as much water as you can. ( Min 8 glasses of water is recommended, my water intake was min 3-4 liters).

    6. Remove all processed food, junk food , alcohol, soda and sweets from your daily list and replace those with real and whole food like fruits, vegetables , eggs, meat, milk etc.

    7. Make snacking on healthy food like almonds, fruits, sandwich, hard boiled egg, yogurt etc a habit.

    8. Include exercise in your daily routine. Exercise not only burns extra calories but also increases metabolism. If you don't have access to a gym then go for walk, go cycling, swimming etc. Get at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity.

    9. Try to eat less carbs (especially avoid white rice) in your dinner and finish your dinner 2-3 hours before bed time.

    10 . Get enough sleep everyday ( 6-8 hours ). Poor sleep can ruin your weight loss plans.

    11. A huge part of losing weight is believing that you can do it and realizing it's not going to happen overnight.

    I hope these tips will help you lose weight. Best of luck on your weight loss journey.

    Garlic should be included in any weight loss diet as they reduce the appetite. It also reduces the cholesterol in the body and helps to maintain blood sugar level. They are very effective in preventing cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

    Count your calories. In order to lose weight you'll need to cut down on the total amount of calories you eat each day.
    Cut out between 500 – 750 calories each day. This will help you lose anywhere from 0.5 – 1.0 kg (1 – 2 pounds) per week.[2] In combination with exercise you may be able to lose 1.3 kg (3 pounds) per week; however, this not a guarantee.
    Use a food journal, calorie tracking website or smartphone app to help get an idea of how many calories you currently consume. Subtract 500 or 750 from this number to get a new calorie limit to help you lose weight.
    Do not eat less than 1,200 calories daily. It's generally thought that eating less than this is not safe as its difficult to consume the recommended amount of nutrients you need daily.



    2
    Include lean protein at each meal. Protein is a great food group to help support weight loss — especially if you're looking to lose weight quickly.
    Protein is an essential nutrient to any diet. Studies have shown that it can keep you satisfied longer and with less food in addition to supporting your metabolism.[4]
    To help you reap the weight loss benefits of protein, try to include at least one serving (75 – 120g or 3 – 4.5 oz) at each meal and snack.[5] Eating protein throughout the day can help spread its satiating effect over the entire day.[6]
    Stick to lean protein choices as these foods also contain fewer calories. Go with: skinless poultry, lean pork, seafood, legumes, tofu, low-fat dairy and eggs.


    3
    Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables are great food groups to eat regularly when you're trying to lose weight. Fill up on these foods at each meal and snack.
    Both fruits and vegetables are fairly low in calories, but high in fiber and other essential nutrients. They are filling and add bulk to your meals without adding many calories.
    Make half your plate a fruit or a vegetable. Or, include one to two servings of either per meal. One portion is equal to four heaped tablespoons of cooked kale or spinach, one medium fruit (like an apple or pear), 30 g dried fruit (like raisins), or a 5 centimeter (2 in) slice of a large fruit (like melon or papaya).


    4
    Choose whole grains instead of refined grains. 100% whole grains are a more nutritious choice compared to refined grains like wheat bread, white flour or white rice. Choose these types of grains more often.[10]
    100% whole grains are less processed and are typically higher in fiber, protein and other beneficial nutrients. Processed grains have these nutrients stripped and are therefore less nutritious.[11]
    Keep your grain intake to a minimum. There has been some research that lower carb diets or those that limit grains result in faster weight loss than low-calorie diets alone.[12]
    Also, stick to the appropriate servings of grains. Measure out about 28 g (1 oz) of grains like cooked oats or quinoa when you choose to eat them.
