1. Stop outside food.
2. Watch your portion sizes.
3. Decrease sugar, sweets, chocolates and munching items like farsan etc
4. Do some light exercise suitable for your medical condition.
5. Increase fiber in the diet by including oats, barley, apples, methi seeds, chia, vegetables, sprouts.
6. Drink lemon or infused water throughout the day
