User :   could u explain in detail?
Doctor :   ntentional weight loss is a deliberate attempt to lose weight. Although there are many programmes to help lose weight, the only proven long-term and safe method is to burn more calories than are ingested. This is achieved either by reducing the caloric intake (eat less food or healthier food) or by increasing the energy expenditure (exercise more). Often, behaviour modification techniques like eating smaller portions are also used to help control eating habits.

Doctor :   Increase the consumption of complex carbohydrates like whole wheat, millet (jowar) and barley (bajra)
Doctor :   Restrict refined products such as flour (maida) and its products such as bread, noodles, macaronis and pastas in regular diet
Doctor :   Restrict fat and cholesterol rich foods. Only non-vegetarian foods (like eggs and dairy products) are good sources of cholesterol, however saturated fatty acids present in butter, ghee, vanaspati and coconut get metabolised to cholesterol in our body
