Hi For weight loss you need to take a high protein low calorie diet plan. And for constipation you need to include fibre rich foods in your diet. I can just tell you few tips which may help you to some extent 1) Drink Good amount of water. As drinking less water can lead to water retention which is one of the reason of weight gain. 2) Include fiber in your diet. For that you can eat lots of fruits and vegetables. 3) Do minimum 40 minute activity daily.As after 30 minutes our body enter fat burning zone. 4) Eat small & frequent meals. 5) You can include Green tea post lunch and post dinner. 6) Mind the portion size of whatever u eat,Don't overeat. _____________________________ But for proper result you need to follow a personalized diet plan. I suggest you - You should tell your problems to your Dietician so that she can resolve them or as you meet the other Dietician for assessment. DISCLAIMER : If u have any other medical issue then tips will change in that case.
