Diet Chart for Weightloss for Indian Women: What to Eat From Breakfast to Dinner

By Contributor: Shreya Katyal

How many of us feel that Junk food is really tasty? I guess majorly all of us. But it does not mean healthy food is not tasty. This is the remix era and if we mix junk food with indian food options, we can have both nutrition and taste in the same plate. Junk Food has a lot of processed items and high trans-fat and little nutrition to offer. But what if I say we can still eat junk food by eliminating trans-fat content and adding fibre and nutrition to them? And because we are Indians, we need to stick to our ground roots and thus can make our desi food tastier with junk fusion.      

Now what is Healthy Food Basically? We all grew up reading we must eat healthy food and a balanced diet, but not many of us know what Healthy Food really is. Any food that we eat is healthy if we know the right time to eat it and the frequency of it (Yes! Even those Chole Bhature, Pizza, Burger, Pasta are healthy if we know how much and when to eat it). We have heard it a lot that we should eat 5-6 small meals rather than having only 3 major meals. But ever wondered what should we eat in these 5-6 meals that are healthy, tasty as well as satisfying our hunger pangs, all at the same time? So, today I will be talking about what foods can we eat during what meals and what foods to add to our diet which give us taste as well as nutrition, also helping us lose weight at the same time.



Breakfast is supposedly the most important meal of the day and a lot of people ignore this main meal. Having a good sumptuous breakfast is what the body needs the most in morning. But what are healthy breakfast options?

VEGETARIAN– Vegetable Poha, Milk Mueseli/Oats, Namkeen Daliya, Masala Idli, Vegetable sandwich, Paneer Sandwich, Upma, Oats Maggi, 1 Stuffed Prantha (low oil), Idli Sambhar, Besan Cheela, Toast and Vegetable, Toast and daal, Sprouts, Boiled Chana/ Rajmah Chaat, Milk and Toast.

NON VEGETARIAN– Boiled egg whites and Milk, Egg white French Toast, Scrambled Egg and Toast, Masala Omelette and Toast, Boiled Chicken Sandwich.

These are all very healthy breakfast options, giving you good nutrition and that metabolism boost, early in the morning. Also, don’t forget to make milk a part of your breakfast daily.

Now coming to the favourite options for breakfast, namely- Chole Bhature, Pav Bhaji, Bread/ Vegetable Pakoras, Aloo Puri, Bread Roll etc., these can be taken once in 15 days that too only homemade in fresh oil and mainly if you are working out at least 4 hours in a week. Otherwise, limit them to once a month only and in both cases, make sure you stick to the quantity.



We usually tend to skip this one meal mostly as either we are too busy to eat or do not feel hungry to eat. But again, we need to have this small meal so that we don’t really over do our lunch.

SNACKING OPTIONS Coconut Water(yes, you can have the malaai too as it will give you healthy fats), Green Tea, 1 fist Bhuna Chana, 1 fist murmura, 1 fist diet namkeen, 1 fist Dry Fruits (5 almonds, 2 cashew nut, 2 walnuts, 2 kishmish), Any Fruit/ Fruit Salad, Sprouts.

Diet Chart for Lunch

As per Indian lifestyle, carbohydrates are an integral part of our diets and we should never try to eliminate them completely from our diets. Lunch is actually the best time to eat chapatis in the day. So, the ideal lunch for us mostly is chapati with vegetable, daal, curd/raita either we are having lunch at home, office, school/college.  What changes can we make in this basic meal is that if we eat more than 1 chapati, we can add bran to our atta to make it more fulfilling with lesser calorie intake. Secondly, Eat either daal or vegetable at a time (if going in for weight loss). Thirdly, eating a platter full of those greens and reds should be a must with lunch and dinner both. Salads add the much required fibre & crunch to our diet and also prevent us from over eating. Besides chapati, daal and vegetable, below are some other healthy lunch options-

LUNCH OPTIONS1 bowl sautéed veges and toast, 1 plate dahi bhalla(bonus for chaat lovers), 2 bowl vegetable and curd/raita, 1 bowl soup and 1 bowl salad (veg/ non veg), 1 bowl rice and 1 bowl daal/chane/rajma/kadhi (without pakora obviously), 6 inch subway (veg/ non veg, but only with mint sauce and seasoning),Vegetable garlic bread (without cheese, if losing weight ), 5-6 pcs. Paneer Tikka with salad, homemade chicken/vegetable kathi roll.


Diet Chart for EVENING Snacks:

Evening time is officially known as “CHAI TIME” and all of us go in for our favourite tea/ coffee/ green tea. It is however important that we have any small snacking also at this time or maybe within an hour of having our tea/ coffee. I usually don’t really recommend biscuits with tea/ coffee (either low fat or diet biscuits also as these are just marketing gimmicks).But one can have either 2 marie biscuits or 2 monaco biscuits with tea. Besides biscuits what you can always have as evening snacks are-Bhel puri, 4 pcs. Gol Gappe, Diet/roasted namkeen, bhuna chana, murmure, 2 pc. Dhokla, 2 pc. Khandvi, 2 boiled egg whites, any fruit, 1 Toast, sprouts.

What to Eat for DINNER:

Ideally we must have our dinner by 6.30-7.00 PM (basically by the time sun sets, to ensure better digestion of food). But keeping in mind our lifestyle and hectic working schedules I suggest one should at least go in for early dinners (if possible) by 8.00 PM or latest by 9.00 PM and not later than that on a regular basis. I personally do not recommend salt free dinners as a routine because it is something we cannot adapt as a lifestyle. Instead of going in for salt free dinners, one should try and go in for early dinners (between 7.30- 8.00 PM) as it is more practical to follow in long run. For people working in night shifts or late night jobs, they must make sure that there should be at least 2 hours of gap between their dinner and sleeping time. Also, keep in mind that dinner should be the lightest meal of the day as we mostly go to sleep after having dinner. Besides chapatti, daal, and vegetables, other dinner options can be-

VEGETARIAN– 1 bowl thupka soup (with big vegetables and noodles), subway salad platter (no dressing, only seasoning), Milk Mueseli/ Oats, Sprouts, 1 Soya Chaamp Roll, Sauteed veges with Toast, 5-6 pcs. Paneer Tikka, 1 Homemade Kaathi Roll (paneer/mushroom/mix vege filling), 6 inch subway.

NON- VEGETARIAN– 5-6 med. Pcs. Tandoori Chicken/ Fish tikka and salad, 4-5pcs. Reshmi Chicken, 1 bowl chicken soup and 1 bowl chicken salad (no dressing), 6 inch subway, 2-3 pcs. Homemade chicken and chapatti, scrambled egg white and chapatti, homemade chicken seekh roll, boiled egg whites and toast.

What to Eat POST DINNER for Cravings:

Post Dinner meal is like seal the deal meal. It is given usually to help aid good digestion. So, I mostly recommend a cup of green tea without sugar or luke warm honey lemon water to make you feel lighter and less bloated in the next morning.

All these points pretty much sum up how we can lose weight with healthy foods, satisfying our taste buds also. Again, what plays an important role here is what quantities we eat. So, stick to the quantities and have not more than 1 serving of every food (in order to lose weight).  Start following these points and see the change for yourself. HAPPY#EATING#

  1. Being a diet conscious freak, I loved going through this post. I usually follow the breakfast routine but by the dinner time I start feeling so hungry that I could not restrain myself from eating huge chunks. I guess this is because of the big gaps, as you suggested I would try satiating my appetite with small meal portions in between.

  2. Very informative post :) Thanks… I am a gym rat and I follow all these. But initially it used to difficult because of gaps between meals. Now I have small meals…

  12. Thanks for your post on this blog. From my personal experience, many times softening way up a photograph may well provide the photographer with a little an inspired flare. Many times however, this soft blur isn’t what precisely you had in your mind and can often times spoil a normally good image, especially if you thinking about enlarging it.

  13. Fantastic goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just too magnificent.

  42. deep tissue massage
    “Experience the Ultimate Relaxation with Deep Tissue Massage

    Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic technique that goes beyond the surface to target chronic muscle tension and knots. This specialized treatment focuses on releasing deep layers of muscle tissue, promoting pain relief and restoring flexibility. By applying firm pressure and slow strokes, deep tissue massage allows for a more intense manipulation of the muscles, fascia, and tendons than other traditional massages.

    If you suffer from chronic pain or have built-up tension in your muscles, deep tissue massage may be just what you need. Whether it’s from sitting at a desk all day or engaging in physical activities, our bodies can accumulate stress over time. Deep tissue massage works to break down adhesions (scar tissues) that can cause discomfort and restrict movement. The precise techniques used by experienced therapists target problem areas to alleviate pain, increase blood flow, and reduce inflammation.”

  43. swedish massage
    “Experience the Ultimate Relaxation with a Swedish Massage

    Indulge in the tranquility and rejuvenation of a Swedish massage, the epitome of relaxation and pampering. Known for its gentle yet effective techniques, a Swedish massage offers a multitude of benefits for both your body and mind. With its roots dating back to ancient times, this traditional form of bodywork has evolved into one of the most popular massage styles worldwide.

    During a Swedish massage, skilled therapists use long, flowing strokes combined with kneading and circular motions to ease tension and promote deep relaxation. The aim is to release muscle knots and melt away stress, leaving you feeling entirely refreshed and rejuvenated. By increasing blood flow throughout your body, this type of massage not only relieves muscle soreness but also enhances overall well-being.”
