This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
You will need to follow a low calorie diet.
The dietary daily caloric intake should be less than caloric expenditure.
Low carbohydrate diet can be considered.
That means you can eliminate any raw vegetable intake.
You can cook your vegetables well.
Fish, nuts, legumes, poultry are good.
You can have higher good fat and protein diet.
Eat the good fats which contain essential fatty acids in their natural unprocessed form.
The examples of good fats are: cold pressed vegetable and seed oils, avocados, fish (especially oily fish such as sardines, salmon, tuna, herring, sablefish, flounder, trout, bass and mackerel), shrimp, prawns and crayfish, raw fresh nuts, raw fresh seeds such as flaxseeds (linseeds), sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, hemp seeds, alfalfa seeds, pumpkin seeds and legumes (beans, peas and lentils).
Please consume a wide range of proteins from grains, raw nuts, seeds, legumes, eggs, seafood, and free range chicken (without the skin), and lean fresh red meats.
If you want to be vegetarian, then be sure to take supplements like, vitamin B 12 ( 1000 mcg daily), iron ( 60 mg daily), taurine and carnitine (1000mg daily) to avoid poor metabolism and fatigue. To obtain first class protein, strict vegetarians need to combine 3 of the following 4 food classes at one meal – grains, nuts, seeds and legumes; otherwise valuable essential amino acids may be deficient.
