It was designed according to his body type and health goal. We designed his protein intake to 0.7g per kg body weight and gave a 1500kcal diet... Also, his water intake was limited to less than 2litres per day which includes water in his food. Hence, we suggested him mutton bone soup which is a super food that enhances the heart functioning along with water rich fruits and vegetables so that he does not feel dehydrated and thirsty. The portion of grains were reduced from his diet as the structure of grains tend to increase water retention in the body. His plan was customized to 2 meals and one snack throughout the day to aid in TRE (time restricted eating) that enables autophagy and is a recommended approach for rejuvenation of organ health.
