Every person has a different body type. While some are thin, others are healthy. However, sometimes we barely come to know that when we become obese from being healthy. In this scenario it is very important to understand the concept of losing weight in a right and to prioritise overall health and wellness.

In this article, Dr Aanchal Panth shares some tips on simple lifestyle changes that can help you reduce weight and stay in shape. Further, Dr. Panth also discusses the common mistakes that are made by people which affects their weight loss journey.

Set a goal 

It is important to set a realistic goal that is attainable and sustainable over time, rather than aiming for rapid weight loss that may not be healthy or sustainable in the long term. Dr. Panth advises to set a target about the amount of weight you want to lose in a month. Keep in mind that it is not possible for everyone to lose 10-15 kg in one month. To lose weight in a healthy way, it is advisable to set a goal of about 2-3 kg per month.

Understanding Body Mass Index Calculator (BMI)

BMI can determine whether you are underweight or overweight. To calculate BMI, divide your weight in kilograms by height in metres squared, and the final value should be between 18.5 to 24.9.

Role of exercise 

Dr. Panth believes that incorporating 15 minutes of exercise into your daily routine can have a significant impact on your lifestyle. Exercise can take many forms, such as dancing and watching workout videos on YouTube or it can be as simple as skipping or brisk walking. Once you have started with 15 minutes of exercise, you can progress to joining a gym. Weight lifting can help you lose weight and tone your muscles. It's even beneficial for women who fear that the gym will give them a muscular appearance.

Changes in diet

It's important to have all meals on time and avoid skipping them, as doing so may make you want to eat more during your next meal. Instead of unhealthy evening snacks, consider fruits, nuts, or other healthy alternatives. Dr. Panth also recommends having dinner at least 2 hours before bedtime and starting your meal with a bowl of salad. If you're short on time in the morning, consider having a smoothie for breakfast. Lastly, try to reduce the amount of sugar in your diet.

Diet Replacements 

You can substitute chips and other unhealthy snacks for baked fox nuts when you want to snack but aren't actually hungry. Instead of sweets, you can opt for naturally sweet fruits. Carbonated lemon water can be a healthier alternative to aerated drinks. You don't have to cut down on your meals, but you can try reducing the portions.

Factors hampering weight loss

It's not necessary to adhere to fad diets; instead, try to eat more homemade food. Lastly, don't fall for any weight loss gimmicks. Maintain a healthy, sustainable plan that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise. By making these small but meaningful changes, you can achieve your weight loss goals and improve your overall health and well-being.


In conclusion, weight loss procedures can be effective options for people who have struggled with obesity and other related health issues. However, it's important to remember that these procedures are not a quick fix and require commitment to lifestyle changes as well as continued medical supervision.
