As a bonus tip, I would recommend you cut back on starches and sugar. Cutting back on sugar and carbohydrates would eventually lower down your appetite, and you’ll end up consuming fewer calories. Just make sure to drink lots and lots of water and keep yourself hydrated throughout the day.
Following the weekly weight loss meal plan mentioned above, you can shed more than 10 pounds easily, which includes both, water weight as well as body fat.
Other than that, try and include some exercise to your routine. Diet and exercise go hand in hand when it comes to losing weight healthily. So, start your day with a half-hour morning walk and end it with a few stretches before going to bed. Also, take care of your sleep cycle. I hope it helps. Good Luck!
