Thanks for posting your query.

Foods strictly disallowed

Fast foods, such as McDonald's
Indian fast foods, such as bhel, chaats, samosas, etc.
Fried foods, whether shallow or deep-fried.
Sweet foods

Eat slowly and enjoy your food.

Exercise and diet go hand in hand when weight loss is the goal. This program will gradually ease you into a fitness routine. Once you see some weight loss, the exercise regime needs to get tough to keep up with your body that is growing stronger!

Cardio's all you need for now. Fat burn happens through cardio workouts such as walking, swimming or aerobics. Start with walking three days a week for 20 minutes. The pace should be brisk and you should feel a bit out of breath.

Apart from exercise, keep yourself physically active as much as possible. Take the stairs, walk short distances. Don't lie down during the day. Offer to run errands for your family or help with housework. Go dancing!

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
