What changes can we make in our cooking to reduce weight? Or is it possible to change some common recipes like daily sabzi, dal, parantha, rice, rajma, chole etc?

I know we all are quite busy in this techno world but just imagine do we will be the same after 20 or say 30 years. We always have to take time for ourselves. you can easily visible that at the age of 50 your parents are quite healthy but have you thought that at the age of 50 you would have same energy and same ability as your parents are having it right now. Lastly we all are doing careers for our health only..
Breakfast should be a mix of protein 40% and carbs 30%, Lunch should be having 30% protein and 50% carbs and evening snacks should have 30% protein and dinner should have 20% carbs. These distribution is on per day basis.
