This week’s answers:
I am 24 year girl and my height is 5ft 3 inch and my body weight is 60.3kg. Earlier I was 52 kg but from last 2 years I am working in night shift and have gained 8 kg. I will be really happy if you can suggest me a diet chart to follow since I don’t stay at home my eating habit is very bad. My day starts at 2:30 or 3 in the after noon because I work from 6:00pm till 4:30am.
Hi Shruti, thank you for writing to me
One of the main reasons for your weight gain is a disturbance in your biological clock, due to your work timings- since we cant do much about it, i do suggest some form of cardio exercise like walking for 15 to 20 minutes atleast thrice a week. You may want to start doing Suryanamaskar-6 in the beginning and build up.
