However you can create a diet chart including other healthy and fiber rich foods you like that are low on fat and calories. Make sure, you actually follow the diet chat for as you intend to follow it to achieve your goals.



Early Morning (6:30 - 8:00 am):

Start your day with exercises. It will not only help you burn some calories, but you will also be able to stay active throughout the day, burning even more calories. After your workout add a cup of tea or coffee made from low fat skimmed milk. You can have a couple of fiber rich biscuits with it. Preferably, start your day with a small bowl of cereals.



Brunch (10:30 - 11:30 am):

Weight loss doesn't have to come from hunger. Instead it is best to eat something healthy at quick intervals. Before you feel hungry for your lunch, treat yourself with a fresh fruit such as an apple or orange. Keep shuffling your fruit during the week so that you get all the minerals and vitamins during the week.



Lunch (1:00 - 2:00 p.m.):

Eat a healthy but light lunch that is low of fat and calories. You can also drink a glass of water around 20 minutes before your lunch. It will reduce your hunger and keep you from over eating.



Evening (4:00 - 6:00 p.m.):

You can have a cup of tea or coffee along with healthy snacks. However make sure you avoid sodas and sugary beverages that may appear tempting at this of the day.



Dinner (7:00 - 8:00 p.m.):

Drink a glass of water around 15 minutes before you intend to have your dinner. Now it's time for a light and healthy meal that is full of nutritional content. You can mention different low calorie dishes for dinner on different days of the week.



Post Dinner (10:00 - 10:30 p.m.):

A couple of slices of a fresh fruit like apple or papaya. You can switch your fruits daily.

A diet chart would help you make a balanced diet plan which would include all the six important nutrients in their right proportion. They are fats, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins, proteins and fibers.

To make sure the diet chart works best in helping you attain your weight loss goals, plot the chart only once a week and make comments on how far you have progressed and what more needs to be done. You can always refer to the chart as the weeks pass by which is another important feature of such a weight loss.

  • Hilal25 Jul 2012
    OK Guys all people who are desperate to lose weight. Please first and foremost get comfortable in your skin. which means that you should accept you physical attributes as they are, don't try to emulate or compare yourself to anyone. Having said that, Being overweight sucks and you should work towards reducing the weight. However don't kill yourself for it and there is nothing to be worried about. Control your diet and Exercise regularly.
