Hello doctor,

I need to reduce my waist size by 2 inches. Can you recommend drugs, supplements, and a diet to achieve this?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Regarding the diet, you should take 1200 calories per day.

The breakfast should be between 7 to 10 a.m. It should contain an egg, one whole grain bread.

You need to have a snack at 12 p.m. It can consist of fruits, green tea or dark chocolate with coffee.

Lunch can be had between 2 to 5 p.m. It can consist of four tablespoons rice or pasta plus grilled protein meat or chicken along with green salad and vegetables.

Another snack to be between 6 to 8 p.m. This should be similar to the first except coffee.

Dinner should be between 7 to 9. Yoghurt and lemon juice.

Regarding medications, I do not want to recommend any medications.

You need lifestyle measures like walking for 30 minutes every day.
