Thanks for posting your query.

You have to take protein rich and low carbohydrate products.

On yoga front, various forms of yoga are recommended for weight reduction. Generally, the extra pounds of the body are deposited near the belly and the thigh region. Most of the yoga postures like wheel pose and semi wheel pose work greatly for the reduction of the weight. It also imparts flexibility to the body.

Among the various kinds of yoga, it is Hatha yoga which helps the overall well being of the individual. It improves the physique as well as provides energy to manage daily activities with ease. The dead corpse pose along with the breath exercises will help you feel fresh and help burn the cholesterol to generate energy in the body. The energy can be used for various activities.

Breath control is another aspect of yoga which helps to control the mind as well as the body. It helps to manage the stressful situations with ease.

Hope I have answered your query.

hello... the best part is you just have to lose 2-3 kgs.. which is very simple and possible with brisk walks for 1 hour along with some ab exercises... eat small meals every 2-3 hours.. avoid milk and wheat as some people dont lose weight with these..have fruits, nuts, egg whites, sprouts as mid meals..salad with lunch and dinner.. avoid breads/ rice for dinner and keep it light.. drink plenty of water.. rest well..

Hello Holyland,

Welcome to the forum. It is nice to know that you want to work out your menu and get into shape. Over weight and a bulging belly not only affects your personality but it is also detrimental for your health. Obese people are at higher risk of diseases like hypertension, heart diseases, diabetes, thyroid dysfunctions, hormonal problems, stroke and many more. Getting back into shape will make you fit and also help you look stunning.

Yes, you need a diet plan. Avoid food that is rich in carbohydrate, oily fatty junk food, cut on your chocolate, alcohol, soft drinks and caffeine intake. Avoid eating fried snacks, chips, buttery pastries and all type of fast food.

You should eat substantial food that is rich in protein like eggs, meat, fish, beans and cereals. These will help you reduce weight and also minimize hunger pangs. Your muscles will get toned up. You should take dairy products like milk, cheese, yoghurt, etc. These will supplement your calcium intake and also improve your immunity level. You should take plenty of fresh green veggies and fruits, juices and pure hygienic water to keep yourself well hydrated, energetic and fresh.

Eat food cooked in little oil, you can top it up with olive oil. Boiled and blanched food will be still better. With all these you will have to perform exercises regularly under an expert, you can perform yoga and spend some time in meditation. Every 10 days you should check out your weight, if you are doing pretty well, gift yourself a makeup kit or dress. Have a good day,take care.

Thanks for approaching.

A personalised diet is planned making the modifications in what already you are eating.So need to share your present diet along with your height,age and medical complication(thyroid,irregular periods or perimenopausal etc.)if any. There are some specific foods which suit to a particular blood group.So can suggest you accordingly.You can have green tea twice a day,curry leaves to be chewed empty stomach,fresh lime (no salt- no sugar)twice a day to speed up your weight loss.
