- Have a homemade nutritious breakfast one hour after the fruit . Avoid bread, pickles and sauces at this time.

- Have lunch between 11 a.m. to max 1 p.m. Dont delay this meal.

- Eat a variety of cereals ( like whole wheat, jowar, bajra, rice, nachni etc) for lunch along with with fresh veggies and dal.

- Have curd or chaas post lunch after a two hour gap. Avoid adding salt and sugar, but feel free to add fresh black pepper or jeera

- Preferably cut down on chai/coffee to not more than one cup a day (also made at home )

- Include cheese, paneer, peanut butter, white butter (homemade )for a snack  or early dinner      by 6-7 p.m.. This meal could be similar to lunch but with one of the above mentioned     options.

- Eat seasonal sabzi or steamed veggies with a small bowl of khichdi by 9.pm.
