2 nutritionists share the ideal Indian diet plan to lose weight
With obesity affecting 5 per cent of the country’s total population, weight loss is top priority for many. However, we also know that losing weight is no cakewalk. A combination of a healthy diet and regular workout is the key to healthy and sustainable weight loss.

Losing weight requires one to eat a balanced diet with the right proportions of all food groups.
