A:   Hi,

Thanks for writing to Ask The Doctor.

Your diet plan is pretty good. You have adhered to most of the recommendations. Here are a few:
1. Remove refined sugars from your diet
2. Aim to be at a deficit of 500 calories per day
3. Do not take foods which are processed. Instead take natural foods like fruits and vegetables.
4. Exercise vigorously till you are sweating for 30 mins a day, at least 3 times a week.

Aim to lose 1 kg per week. Aiming to lose more weight than this can be unhealthy. If you are not losing weight despite dieting and working out, please consult a Doctor.
