How to reduce weight inorder to maintain a good BMI? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help?
Hello Doc, Good evening
i m 27 yrs old female. my height is 150cm & body weight is 66 kgs. i want to reduce weight to maintain a good BMI. Please help
Let me calculate your BMI
Your BMI is 29.3
It is in the category of overweight
Reducing weight is usually a slow process
It involves taking a low calorie diet within limits and doing exercise daily for atleast 20 min
Are you there?
Do you want to know anything about my daily food habits?
You need to avoid high calorie foods
You can tell if you want to and I can tell you where you are going wrong
ok... please give some time to tell you in short
High calorie foods are milk products like cheese, butter, ghee, cream, icecream, milk shakes, buffalo milk
Usually I take 2-3 chapaties in the breakfast and lunch with Tea or coffee. I take rice, dal & other seasonal vegetables in dinner time as i dont get time to cook food during day time.
In lunch you take just tea/coffee
yes with chapaties.
i only take Broiler Chicken meat twice a month. Among fishes I take every kind of fish but just twice a month. I take approx. 6 eggs per week (both in boiled & cooked).
i try to include all types of seasonal vegetables in my vegetable list.
i donot have the habit of taking high calorie food stuffs like butter, ghee, cheese etc.
But I donot know why my body weight in increasing day by day. I m abit concerned and thus seeked ur help.
i m done doctor. now please tell me your suggestion
also need to avoid chocolates, sweets, some non veg dishes that may be high calorie
as per your opinion what r the other non veg dishes which contain high calorie?
Meats from which animal fat has not been removed
if it is increasing for no reason than it is better to get tested
As i already informed you doctor that except Chicken I donot take any other meat.
do you have any other symptoms apart from weight gain?
yes, doctor. I have both
What other symptoms do you have?
any digestion issues?
my body pressure remains around 95/65.
I have little problem of gastric & headache.
Nothing more at present.
Is your weight gain mostly on the abdomen?
Yes, mainly in abdominal area and upper area of leg.
yes. all came normal.
I was thinking that it may be a component of metabolic syndrome but things are mostly normal other than weight gain
Thus the best we can do is follow a planned diet
and regular exercise
Can you suggest one in my mail id?
In diet take 3 meals and 2 - 3 small snacks in a day at fixed times
please send me your email address
Meanwhile also take hygienic food and clean drinking water
Lots of water may help flush out any toxins in the body
ok doctor. i shall eagerly wait for same.
Also take more of fruits and vegetables
Do you think i might have any internal disease which is not detected yet?
No I do not think so
In fact it may be hereditary
Does your parents or someone in family have issues with weight?
In todays world lifestyles have become bad
very less activity and mostly sedentary life contribute to these issues
The diet continues to be same as in the past generations
shall I go for the Thyroid profile test once more along with blood sugar and blood count?
When were the previous ones done?
about 8 - 10 months back.
Yes you can go for a repeat test
One important question
yes.. please ask..
Are your menstrual periods regular?
Yes. usually it starts on the 28th day.
Sometimes it gets delayed by 2-3 days. but that happens once or twice in a year.
So weight gain is not related to female hormone abnormality
That is reassuring
please dont mind doctor. I hope i m not killing your time.
I an sending your diet plan
No its ok
I have sent it
Do you have any questions?
yes, i got it. Thanks a lot doctor. How can i get you in touch if required? as because this was a chat session...
