I am a female weight is 66 kg height is 5.3 inch I want to loose weight please let me know what to eat please provide me the right diet chart.

Considering your height, your ideal body weight should be around 58 kg. Thus some amount of restriction is essential for you so that you can lead a healthy lifestyle. Over weight can hinder our physical activity and can lead to serious health problems later in life. Hence weight loss involves a combination of healthy eating, exercise and stress free lifestyle. A diet chart for weight loss will help you in understanding which foods are good for health, which foods need to be avoided and how much to eat.

Your diet should consist of fiber which will provide bulk to your diet.

It should also consist of vitamins and minerals that can properly utilize the fat consumed. Regular exercise is very much necessary. Drink lots of water so that the food gets digested effectively.

Weight loss is a gradual phenomenon. Be patient and make realistic goals. There should be a discipline while following the diet chart for weight loss.

Certain guidelines that need to be considered for weight loss are:

  1. Have 4 to 6 small meals and snacks everyday rather than 3 large meals. This will help you in controlling your hunger and the nutrients are also utilized effectively.
  2. Plan your diet chart in advance. Hasty and incomplete planning can make you confused and can increase the temptation towards fatty and junk foods.
  3. Chew your food properly as this can help you in reducing weight.
  4. Plan your food items effectively. Include whole grain cereals, pulses, legumes, vegetables, fruits and water in your everyday diet.
  5. Avoid fatty foods or high caloric foods. Avoid sugary foods, pastries and sweets.
  6. Include large amounts of fruits and vegetables. Try to eat a total of 5 fruits and vegetables per day.

The diet chart is just a plan. How well you execute this plan and achieve maximum benefits is important.

A sample diet chart that can be beneficial in losing weight is:

  1. Early morning - a cup of skimmed milk without sugar
  2. Breakfast - whole bread with low fat spread, cereal mixture, a glass of fruit juice
  3. Mid morning - one raw vegetable like carrot or cucumber.
  4. Lunch - A bowl of clear soups without cream added. Wheat pancakes with mixed vegetables that are boiled or baked, low fat yogurt, a small bowl of brown rice with pulse preparation. One fruit.
