Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
First I would like to let you know is avoid dieting if you do. Do not skip meals and eat and sleep on time. Exercise regularly for an hour along with brisk walks with an average of 100 steps per minute, you should do this religiously for 5 days a week at least. Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables and avoid junk and high calorie foods. Eat Protein rich foods like egg white, consume skimmed milk. Consume more of white meat rather than red one. Have your Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. Have your dinner 2 hours before you sleep and don't forget to go for a brisk walk for 15 minutes post dinner.

Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

weight reduction is based on your height and age
you are not given your age
any way for reduction of weight
Motivation : Consider your body as a slave. Do not pamper it, do not listen to its unreasonable demands and try to work it hard.
Confidence : Weight can be reduced. There is no reason why it should not happen. It only needs sustained effort and perseverance.
Sustained effort : Weight gain occurs over a time and it will be lost over a time. Half Kg. per week or 2-3 Kg. per month is a good rate of loss. But this rate usually means a sustained effort for 5–6 months for most moderately obese people.
Find your bottleneck in diet : Excess tea, excess juices, excess snacks, excess social events, free food etc. and cut on that.
Reduce total calorie intake : To reduce weight a cut in diet to nearly half of current diet is required to make any significant effect.
Small frequent meals : Do not skip meals and especially not the breakfast. Divide total food intake into 3-4 small meals.
Water: Take lot of water, 20-30 glasses of water per day.
Green salad : Take a lot of green salad such as cucumber, carrots, radish, cabbage etc. You have to eat in kilos and not small pieces to do that. Usual response Yak! Salad is not tasty. You can either have tasty food or health.
Forget about taste: You can either have tasty food or health.Fonh out your weakness or cut those. Most often these items are eaten in excess as well as these are likely to be calorie rich. Develop a taste for healthy food.
Exercise : You must be surprised that I have kept exercise at the last. I am a myself diehard gym goer. Exercise is a very important component for fitness and activity. But for exercise to be able to reduce weight it has be moderately intense e.g. (gym) or 30-40 minutes of brisk walking. It has to be sustained i.e. at least 5 days a week. The increase in hunger due to exercise has to be controlled. No amount of exercise can reduce weight without appropriate diet control. Rather weight will increase further due to increased appetite. In weight loss, 80% role is of diet control and 20% of exercise.
Calculate: Calculate your calorie intake. Know your calorie value of common cooked food.
thanking you
