Here is a sample weight loss food table using 1200-1500 calories per day.
Here are some Nigerian recipe notes for weight loss
OMG, I LOVE YOU GUYS FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Runs to print, share on Facebook, Twitter and my blog!!!
But erm, a whole plantain for breakfast?
Lol… we love you more!!! You think a whole plantain is too much?
Tanx, indeed very helpful
you are welcome
Great table. I like that there’s brown rice and whole wheat pasta
Why not more fruits though? Especially local fruits oranges, garden egg, paw paw, water melon… Lol, my F&N mindset is running wild.
Things like Indomie and Pounded yam can go abeg. People who want to lose weight have to make sacrifices jore. No short cut. In fact no dinner sef. LOL!
When I was in Nigeria, I noticed more ‘whole wheat’ and plantain flours used to make ‘swallows’ instead of eba and poundo yam or any of the other Tuwo varieties (semo, corn, alkama (wheat)).
Please correct your tuwo spelling don Allah. Its not Tuo.
No dinner ke? lol… that wont work, people have to progress in indulgence stages to actually loose weight, you cannot totally take away things that they are used to. And for the fruits, we tried to only include things that are in season year round…. people can always substitute with what they have available. The Tuwo spelling shall be corrected.
where can i get brown rice in abuja
Thanks for this naija foodie but i keep seeing palm oil free , i mean how do i cook all dese soups without palmoil or is there a substitute?? please let me know thanks in advance
Palm oil is extremely high in calories and fat therefore not weight loss friendly. Substitute healthier oils like olive oil and vegetable oil.
@ade substituting palm oil with tomatoes gives the soup a delicious taste and great colour too. u know like youre making stew-soup. its cheating!
Are you going to come up with a weight gain table soon?
If you need one, we can hook you up.
Abeg hook us up with the weight gain table…
I am on it!
very helpful, plus its something i can modify for my daughter who’s on the big side as well. thank you!
we are glad you find it useful
Pls is there such a thing as too much fruit? I eat a lot of bananas in a day. What is too much? I hate crash diet cos u always gain it back. Thanks 9jafoodie can I be ur best friend? Lol.
Yes!!!! you can definitely eat too much fruit, especially the high sugar stuff like bananas. YES you can be my best friend…. lol.
..came across this page by mistake and am loving it.having being trying to lose the remaining weight I gained during pregnancy but its just refuse to go.anytime I get on scale.its same weight! Will try out this food time table and hope its works,
let us know
You know you can actually be loosing some weight without the scale tipping or better still before the scale starts tipping. Check whether your clothes are easier to enter, do u feel lighter? So that you don’t get fixated on the scale while you are actually shedding those kg!
these is really helpful….but wud really luv to have a weight gain table……
we are on it
i rili wish to lose this weight,bt it is just stuck there,i stopped eatin caborhydrates of all sort stopped everytin,i eat fruit mostly wit lot of water bt ve nt seen any changes is there any other way out
You need a good balance of all food classes for sustainable weight loss
Thank you for this 9jafoodie. I like the fact that you take time to respond to comments, but I’d like to clarify if brown rice is the same as ofada rice…thank you
Brown rice is different from Ofada rice.
Please where can I get brown rice in Lagos??????? And please what is boiled cassava?
Depending on where you shop, you should be able to find it at the bigger chain grocery stores. There is a variety of cassava you can boil and eat (similar to yam)
Pls I need a weight gain table.I av tried to take my breakfast,vitamin enrichn drinks n lots more.ders no changes.pls help me out!
Thanks for this…I like the fact that you respond to your comments. Weldone, please I will like to clarify if brown rice is the same with Ofada rice. thank you

Ah! God bless you guys for me for this reasonable diet plan. I was searching for a Nigerian based diet plan and I saw one on a blog (name withheld) that essentially was two eggs for breakfast everyday for two weeks and absolutely no carbs or fats/oils. Around 10 eggs per week. Can someone say cholesterol overdose? I just laughed and continued my search till I found you guys. God bless you again. I already exercise three times a week and was just looking for a diet to go with it. Now printing and pasting on my kitchen wall.
10 eggs??? wow… I think 2 – 4 eggs per week is plenty. You are most welcome.
Great site. i was recently diagnozed with hypertension and was looking for a diet plan that will help reduce my blood pressure. i will definitely try this plan.

wow its been a while my friend i have missed your recipes but this i really love. i have saved it and will talk about it on my blog, Facebook page etc and i will follow it, cos my diet is kinda boring. http://www.secretlilies.blogspot.com
Yeiiii!! I need to visit your blog soon, sorry I have been MIA
Woooo. I’m really impressed with this time table because is really hard to keep to your weight in Nigeria. This is really a good job. Weldone guys.
wow this so helpful and so nice for more interesting details kindly send them to the university of Nigeria
People assume that to lose weight u have to stay of carbs and this and that. U need carbs. U need all classes of food.
so I totally love this. Thanks a lot.
U can replace milk with almond milk. Lower in calories and has more benefits OR with Tiger Nuts milk..amazing substitutes for everyone.
Basmati rice is great but not a substitute for brown rice. Brown basmati rice are sold everywhere as far as I know.
Also please leave the pounded yam abeg. we like it there. LOL what is a Nigerian food table without pounded yam?
ofada rice is very healthy. u can substitute it for ur white rice. no? i think so. not sure sha.
Thanks for this. *prints*
thanks for the thumbs up for we plus-sized ladies and gents. Late last year,I delivered a beautiful set of twins (yayy!) so I have added enough weight already from eating too much to allow breast milk flow well. My kids are approaching 1 year now so i am fully ready to burn all those preggy weights off! i intend to breastfeed them till they are one, but i think i need to start losing weight without compromising on my breast milk flow. Please can you help me plan a food time table that can achieve both effects?thank you!
pls i really want to trim down but there is no time for me to do some exercise considering the fact that i go to work early and close late. wot else can i do
Eat healthy/eat less
Thank you very much 4 dis guyz.. Buh I hav a lil problem.. I am a student nd it is nt everytin on that table dat I can afford.. So wat shuld I do cos dere z no time 2 prepare al dis in skul.. Thank you.
if you cant control what you eat, you should definitely find time to exercise
I really like this page and the diet time table,but my problem goes with the majority who said they don’t get to see the changes in their weight,it does happen to me,more so am a nursing mother who is breast feeding and I can’t get my hands off small foods.please help as I need to drop some weight too.
All you need do is exercise some self control and eat high fiber food that will keep you full for a long time
Hurray! *dancing* #Operation print and paste on fridge!
