Hi Ashwini,
You are eating fine, but suggest a few corrections in your diet plan.
I think you should skip the chyawanprash, gulkanda regime early in the morning. Have plain lemon water instead. Skip the tea with breakfast. In the evening instead of having homemade snack eat half apple instead, without tea.
The new diet accompanied with regular physical activity will help you weight loss program.
