Q: I am a 34yr old married woman. My doctor has advised me to lose weight as my BMI is high for my age. I eat a toast and fried egg for breakfast, roti for lunch. Before going to bed, I eat dinner and a drink glass of milk. I have no time to go for a walk. Will following a sugar-free diet and doing the treadmill help me reduce weight? How can I lose weight?

A: Your diet is minimal. Try to eat every two hours. Eat at least two fruits daily and a bowl of salad with every meal and try and drink up to one litre water. Surely, using the treadmill will help in reducing weight, but not in a day. Start with 20 – 30 minute routine and gradually increase to 45 minutes for six days a week.
