Adequate amount of food with ample amount of exercise is the key and not fasting or only exercise to reduce fat.

    dear Dr. Kannan Pugazhendi,
    i (age 34)have lost some weight (about 7 kilos) and plan to loose some more i have doubts whether I should proceed with it and they are as follows
    # is there a test to measure only body fat and know the ratio of loss of fat to muscle.
    # can you measure the loss of fat and the loss of muscle separately by tests.
    # what is the advisable time period you need to loose 1kg of body weight without causing much side effects (such as loss of minerals).
    # do you also provide customized diet schedule for each individual.
    thanking you,

      Measuring Body fat, knowing ratio of loss of fat to muscle, loss of fat or muscle separately can be checked using the DEXA scan that is done today in major diagnostic centres in the city.You might have to mention the purpose of the scan. Other measurements such as Anthropometric measurements (height, weight, circumferential measures etc) and Fat % evaluation using Skin fold caliper measurements can be done to give an approximation of fat and muscle mass percentages.
      The ideal time period to lose 1kg body weight without side effects will be 15 days.

      Being over weight is one big constraint to exercise on the terrestrial environment. Aquatherapy is of real help in your treatment plan . Stretching, strengthening, walking, aerobics, swimming etc are all activities that can be done in water as aquatherapy. Choose the activities that are comfortable for you and be regular at it.

      P.S. : If you do not know swimming skip that mode of exercise.

      Hi Samal
      As you have mentioned your height is 5′ 9″ (i.e.) 174cms your Ideal Body Weight is 74Kgs.
      And your Body Mass Index is 21 which is very much in the Normal Range.
