Over weight

I am overweight which is 90kgs. These days I am working on it as my target is 60kgs. My major concern is my thighs. For that I am drinking 8-9 glasses of water. Having 2 parantha in breakfast, 2 chapati with vegetable in lunch and soup fruits and salad for dinner. I drink 2 cup of green tea once in morning and the other in afternoon. In evening I walk briskly for an hour and do exercise for my thighs. I am a working executive and wake up at 6 in the morning and by 10:30 I get hold of my bed. It's been a month I have been practicing this regime. Can you please suggest the amendment in my regime that can I do to achieve my target. Any help would be appreciated. Waiting for the help. Thanks in advance

Hi Weight gain happens either due to addition of extra calories or due to failure to spend calories consumed...these extra calories deposited in our body as fat..for weight reduction you have to consume less calories and spend more...avoid junk foods,carbohydrates like rice etc,avoid oily foods...add proteins and fibre rich foods to your diet with green tea,green leafy vegetables, regular exercise at least 2 hours a day...Ask yourself these questions about any diet plan you're considering: Does it include various foods from the major food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, low-fat dairy products, lean protein sources and nuts? Does it include foods you like and that you would enjoy eating for a lifetime — not just for several weeks or months? Can you easily find these foods in your local grocery store? Will you be able to eat your favorite foods, or better yet, all foods? Does it fit your lifestyle and budget? Does it include proper amounts of nutrients and calories to help you lose weight safely and effectively?Is regular physical activity part of the plan? If the answer to any of these questions is no, keep looking. There a re better diet plans out there for you. Consult dietitian fallow the diet chart can see the beneficial effects within a month..
