Hi !

Thank you for your query.

I think you need an expert dietician to calculate your BMI and then prescribe the diet for you. Every body has individual requirement according to his weight and basal metabolic rate . one diet cannot be followed by everybody . Protein hels you build body muscles but excess can be harmful .

So, get yourself a diet chart according to your reqiurements .

Hope you are satisfied with the answer.

If you have any further queries feel free to ask.

Wish you good health.

Take care.
