  • (10:00 AM) Mixed nuts (almonds, dates, cloves, walnuts, sunflower seeds)
  • (11:00 AM) Milk shakes with cereals (Toned milk, Protein one table spoon, Tulsa leave, one spoon turmeric powder, honey, cardamom, 8 to 10 spoons cereals (like muesli, cornflakes or oats)
  • (2:00 PM) 1 cup espresso coffee
  • (3:00 PM) Sprouts or fruits (1 bowl sprouts or 2 apple or 1 small bowl pomegranate)

As I am desk jockey I spend most of my time in front of computer. I am a vegetarian and my goal is to get a balanced diet with good nutrition and lose some weight if possible.

1. It would be helpful if you specify your goals in order for anybody to make any suggestion. 2. Are you a vegetarian? –  Yash Patel Aug 24 at 17:43

Your diet doesn't look too bad, but extra care has to be taken by vegetarians, especially since you are using a protein powder. Traditional vegetarian diets normally include fermented products, for example yogurt, to ensure an adquate supply of B12. I recommend you join one of the many websites which provide dietary analysis (eg nutritiondata.com), and enter full details of what you eat in a typical day.
