The biggest truth about weight loss is that one has to undergo a calorie deficit diet. So, any food item, in particular, will not decide that you will lose weight or not. It is portion size, calories, nutrients, and also some physical workout that matters. But table sugar should be avoided to lose weight. So if you like masala milk then you can have a cup once or tow a day but without table sugar.
Diet is not starving but Eating well-balanced food.
