Use unsaturated oil to cook, avoid fried and oily food items, take good amount of protiens, reduce carbs. take skimmed milk rather than normal milk. eat small amounts of food at regular intervals rather than eating 3 meals, divide into 5-6 servings. More specific advise, you will need diet chart to follow along with exercises.

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic

In order to reduce weight your diet should be high in fiber and low in fat. Choose complex carbohydrates like wheat, ragi, jowar which are high in fiber rather than using rice and refined flours.Take fruits as whole instead of taking it in the form of juices.Use at least two servings of vegetables daily, restrict root vegetables as it is high in simple sugars.
Choose steaming or cooking in pressure which helps to retain the nutrients and there is not much oil used. Instead of deep fat frying choose to grill or bake foods where taste is not altered much. Recommended oil is half liter per person per month. Aviod using saturated fats like ghee ,butter, and full fat salad dressings like mayo sauce. Use sprouted grams as it is a good source of fiber and include green leafy vegetables at least twice in a week.Use skimmed or low fat milk and milk products as it will reduce the fat content in the diet and choose low fat products like soy milk which is high in protein and low in fat.

Hello sir, since past 3-4 days, I am having unformed stools (sometimes small traces of undigested food passing out). I don't have lose motion but am finding it difficult to pass stools and mucus is passing out at times. I go five to six times in a day but very little amount, if any, passes out. The stools are on the softer side. My stomach remains distended and at times little gurgling sound comes from the stomach. There are minor muscular cramps on the lower left side and lower right side of the body. It is a very uneasy feeling where you want to defecate but can't do so. I have some I am living in a hostel. I contacted a doctor, who is an acquaintance in my hometown, who suggested that I am having Amoebiasis and has told me to consume a medicine called Brakke for three days, twice daily. Could you please confirm if I am likely to have amoebiosis? I have tried roughage sources like apples, laxatives like isabgol etc. but these are not working.
