Ans: Weight reduction should be aimed by increasing muscle mass and lowering body fat. It is a gradual process which should be monitored by a professional and not deteriorate health of an individual. Follow a balanced diet with focus on more complex carbohydrates and fiber rich foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grain cereals, etc., sources of protein rich foods like low fat dairy products, lean meat, eggs, pulses and legumes and low but healthy fats like olive or mustard or canola oil, etc. Avoid sweets, chocolates, alcohol, soft drinks, fruit juices, fatty foods, etc. which would add to your fat percentage by contributing empty calories. A regular exercise regimen will bring about building of lean mass and burn extra calories.
