Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
At the age of 24 all the long bones of your body have fused with the growing ends and have reached their permanent fixed size. there is no chance of any increment in your height with any kind of drugs or yoga or exercises. All these things are effective before 12 years of age in females.

Doctor after 4months is my wedding, I want to reduce my weight atleast by 20kgs within 4 months.

Since last 2months I am on diet, would like to share my Food Diary with you.

After waking up I do little exercise I drink Warm water adding 2 drops of lime / honey 1tsp.
Breakfast: Omlette(egg white),toast,fruit. ( if bored i take Idli or wada)
Lunch: Brown bread with one vegetable, one piece of boiled Chicken or Fish,sometimeswith oil free dal.
Snack time: 2 biscuits or lite Puff with tea
Dinner: Apple

In between every 2hours I eat fruit or vegetable or drink buttermilk.

I end up my day with warm milk & boiled egg white.

Now I am planning to buy Treadmill as I feel that i have reduced a little.
Doctor Stretch marks are appearing on my inner thighs,stomach & arms. I am applying Dove Intensive cream on them. Can u please suggest me any other cream If my application is wrong.

Please suggest me if my diet is good for weight loss.
