Hi Kibriya, basically anything that you eat contains calories. Foods can be calorie dense like desserts, fried foods etc, and can be low calorie like vegetables, salads, soups, egg whites etc. All what you need to do for reducing weight is to limit your calorie intake and choose the correct option to maintain adequate calories. These calories comes from carbohydrate, proteins as well as fats. You need to have everything in diet, just choose more complex carbohydrates (like whole wheat flour instead of refined flour etc), low fat (specially limit saturated fats like butter, cheese etc) and a moderately high protein foods (like Egg whites, chicken, fish, low fat milk products, dals & soyabean).

Vegetables are good to be included in your diet in high amounts while losing weight. They can be taken as salads, soups, steamed vegetables, normal Indian veg Style with limited oil. Their calories are also counted in the total calories, but they are low calorie foods with high fiber, vitamins and minerals.
