Diet Plan for Weight Loss

Are you looking for the best Pakistani Diet Plan to lose weight? The rules are simple.

All you need to do is start eating right food. However, in Pakistan, this can feel like an insurmountable challenge, given our food culture and dietary habits. For instance, a typical Pakistani meal is high in carbohydrates and sugar – we eat a lot of potatoes, rice, and sweets.

We also love our snacks and can’t imagine a day without our fix of namkeens. Even we encourage our friends and family into eating more, as a sign of hospitality and affection, and consider refusing, an extra helping a rebuff. To top it all, we’ve never embraced physical exercise as essential. So, it isn’t a surprise that Pakistan is battling with a growing problem of obesity.

But, the answer doesn’t lie in shunning Pakistani food in favour of foreign ingredients or fad diets. Moreover, you’ll find that the best Pakistani diet plan consists of foods that you’ve already got in your kitchen and which will enable you to lose weight by making a few changes to your diet.

Understand the Science Behind Weight Loss

Weight loss and gain revolve around caloric consumption and expenditure. Simply put, you lose weight when you consume fewer calories than you expend and you gain weight when you consume more calories than you sweat.

However, simply determining how many calories your body needs isn’t enough. After all, four samosas (600 calories), two slices of pizza (500 calories), and two gulab jamuns (385 calories) may be within your daily requirement of 1500 calories, but these unhealthy food choices will eventually lead to other health problems like high cholesterol and blood sugar.

To lose weight the healthy way, you also need to ensure your Indian diet plan is balanced i.e. it covers all food groups and provides all the nutrients you need necessary for good health.

To help you get started, Our CEO HAZIQ QURESHI designed this diet plan for weight loss, which is just like the one that helps the competitors slim down. With this easy-to-follow plan, you’re sure to feel refreshed and lose weight (if you want to!) in no time.

The Best Diet Plan for Weight Loss

No single food provides all the calories and nutrients that the body needs to stay healthy. That’s why a balanced diet consisting of macronutrients like carbohydrates, protein, and fat along with micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals, is recommended.

The best Pakistani diet for weight loss is a combination of the five major food groups – fruits and vegetables, cereals and pulses, meat and dairy products, and fats and oils. Furthermore, knowing how to divvy up the food groups, allocate portion sizes, and the best/ideal time to eat is also equally important.

1200 Calorie Weight Loss Diet Chart Plan

A lot can be spoken about what goes into an ideal diet chart. However, one’s nutritional requirement varies based on various factors. It could change depending on gender, for example, male dietary requirements vary from that of a female.

We have put together a diet plan ideal for weight loss with Pakistani food. This 7 day diet plan also known as a 1200 calorie diet plan is a sample, and should not be followed by any individual without consulting a nutritionist.

When it comes to drinks, HAZIQ recommends sticking to no- and low-cal picks like coffee, tea, and water.

And to accelerate weight loss and build a healthy and strong body, HAZIQ suggests doing 60 to 90 minutes of moderate exercise four times a week. (Can’t go to the Gym? Follow this Home Workout Routine for Weight Loss)

5. Pakistani Weight Loss Diet Plan Meal Swaps

One of the easiest ways to eat healthy is to swap out the unhealthy foods from your Indian Diet plan is with its healthier alternatives.

For example, fulfil your cravings for a snack to munch on with air popped popcorn instead of relying on potato chips.

Along with a balanced Weight loss diet chart plan, these habits will help you stay healthy:

  • Opt for 5-6 meals a day: Instead of three large meals, try having three modest meals and a few snack breaks in controlled portions for the day. Spacing your meals across regular intervals prevents acidity and bloating and also keeps hunger pangs at bay. So, quit your junk food habit by making healthier snacking choices in your indian diet plan.
  • Have an early dinner: Indians eat dinner later than the other societies across the world. Since metabolism slows down at night, a late dinner can lead to weight gain. Experts recommend you eat your last meal of the day by 8 pm.
  • Drink a lot of water: How does drinking more water help you lose weight? For starters, it’s zero calories. Also, drinking a glass of water can help curb hunger pangs. Have six to eight glasses of water daily to lose weight and also find a list of drinks that will help you lose weight here.
  • Eat a lot of fiber: A person needs at least 15 gm of fiber every day, as it aids digestion and heart health. Oats, lentils, flax seeds, apples and broccoli are some great sources of fiber.

In conclusion to everything stated above. you don’t necessarily have to ditch your regular food habits or make massive changes to your diet, all you need is to follow the best balanced Indian diet plan to get fit!
