are always debating on what is the best, smartest, quickest, easiest
way to lose weight. After 28years of trying various methods I finally
found that there is only one correct method, which is sound in terms
of your long-term health and well-being. That is, if you want to
take out 10kgs of fat from your body, you have to stop putting fatty
into your mouth.
fatty food tastes good. Do we have to give up all the goodies in
life? Yes, if you want some thing you have to give something. But
here is the good news you dont give it up forever. You use fat i.e.
oil for cooking and seasoning vegetables and dhal/sambar etc. But
apart from that you must not eat any fatty foods cream of milk (use
skimmed milk) butter, ghee, cheese, mayonnaise, pickle, all fried
foods and snacks, nuts, sweets, chocolate, pastries, ice-cream and
red meats. If you completely abstain from these for a week you can
lose ½ to 1kg, 3kgs in one month and 10kgs in 3 months.
period you should never skip a meal, all meals must be properly
balanced, plus fruits and salads eaten daily. I lost 25kgs in 1
year and have managed to maintain this for the last 5 years. A 20-30
minute walk, plus 2-3 liters water is a must daily. I now eat a
fatty food twice a week with a gap of 2-3 days between each treat.
Balance and Budget and Beat the Bulge!!!
this plan you have to prepare some vegetable soup from low calorie
vegetables like cabbage, tomato, onion, palak etc. and eat it daily
for 7 days along with certain specific foods for each day. Namely
fruits only day 1, veggies only day2, fruits & veggies day 3,banana
& milk, beef & tomatoes, beef & veggies, rice &
Very few people can stick to only 1 or 2 types
of food for a whole day.
Many who have tried it and spoken to me have
complained of nausea and headache and said they stopped after
2 or 3 days.
Many are unable to do their normal day-to-day
work while doing this diet and feel very weak and tired. They
are unable to maintain their regular exercise routine and also
complain of being very irritable and short tempered while on
the diet. This is probably because the total calorie intake
is way below the normal requirement and their body is unable
to cope with the day to day routine life
Many feel very sick when they suddenly eat
beef, non-veg or (vegetarians have tried) paneer the whole day.
Many have done the first 2-3 days and not continued
which is a waste of effort and only damages ones health and
Some have lost only 1 or 2 kgs instead of the
promised 5-6 kgs and then put back all they have lost and more
in the future.
This is definitely not the answer for those
who are looking at a 10 or 20 kg loss. Don't even do this thinking
it will kick-start or motivate you to do the rest.
In this diet there is a total lack of protein
on 4 days. The adult human body requires about 50-60 gms protein
every single day. When this is not provided muscle tissue is
broken down in the body and supplied. Yes, you will lose weight
on the scale but not a total fat loss of 6kgs. 2 or maximum
3 kgs may be fat but 2kgs of muscle too and some water will
be lost. When you regain this weight you will regain 6kgs of
fat (no muscle). Therefore after some years when you do a body
composition analysis you will have a higher fat percent in the
body. More fat percent means a lower metabolic rate and this
means a greater chance of putting on weight in the future. Again
you are paving the way for future obesity.
Those who repeat this diet off and on will
lose weight but after some time will find their skin sagging
and face wrinkling and an aged appearance, which can never be
rectified as the muscle tissue below the skin has been lost
during those spells of no protein in the diet.
is unbalanced and therefore many of the minerals and vitamins
required daily will be missing and can result in deficiency.
The most common from this is calcium and iron deficiency resulting
in hair fall, brittle nails and teeth and later poor bones too.
Iron deficiency anemia is one of the worlds biggest deficiency
diseases. Previously we saw it among the poor and slum dwellers.
Today it is commonly prevalent among the rich and over weight
as they are constantly on diets like the above or skipping balanced
is no protein foods like milk, dhals and no bread, rice, etc.
in the diet one will feel very weak and also the blood sugar
levels will drop resulting in headache and giddiness and this
may disrupt normal work, driving, etc. and be dangerous.
days of the diet there is a sudden overloading of protein and
this can be a big strain on the digestive system and kidneys.
