Hi, thanks for joining in again. Lets get straight to the point. If you are still interested in losing weight, let’s get three things in order.

1.Intervals between meals – Eat breakfast king size..!!! NO. This is not the only meal you are going to have in your entire day, so why eat too much? We need to eat every 4 hours in the day (and that makes 5-6 small meals, which is enough food). So, lets keep the stomach empty for more food. Never eat to fill up your stomach, keep your stomach wanting for more. Don’t combine food groups. Have any one type of meal and that’s it. Also, you should have your breakfast within one hour of waking up. At night, eat at least 2 hours before bedtime and eat only proteins and fat…no carbohydrates PLEASE. How will you know how much to eat. Well, its trail and method. Like I mentioned that you have to eat something every 4 hours, if you don’t feel hungry every 4 hours, it means, you consumed too much in your last meal. It is only if you feel hungry every 4 hours, you will know that you did not fill up your stomach last time you ate. Makes sense?

Do not eat breakfast as a King...!!!!!

2. Know the nutrient and calorie value of your food – We all have various social networking apps on our phone right..??!! Well, download a food app on your phone which tells you the nutrient and calorie content of the food that you are eating. They also tell you according to your weight and height, how much calories should you consume in a day. Juts add your food group into the app every time you eat (hardly takes a minute) and it will count the calories for you. Do this for yourself in case you are serious about losing weight. Too much carbs = Too much fat…juts remember this always. Fat should have the lowest percentage in your diet (remember a tea-spoon of olive oil or half a spoon of sugar is enough for a day). You trying to lose weight, unless you change you eating habits, you won’t be able to lose. So, be ready to sacrifice some of your cravings.

Hope this helps. Keep on going back on why you wanted to lose weight. The inner motivation can move mountain (mountains of fat) literally and help you lose weight. Take care..!!!

    1. Hi..thanks for the question. Combining food groups makes you go high on calories. Also, they lead to inappropriate quantity of proteins, fats and carbs. Like take for example a scenario, where one has a toast and egg with milkshake and then have a doughnut. Now that terrible mixing of food groups fat, crabs and proteins all in excess. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Can’t count – so I’ll have to pass on the calorie counting business. Eating smaller portions? From 4 paranthas to 3? Will that work. I am all for losing weight, but its her weight, so she gets to decide. You know how it is.

    1. Hi Anand, you have to see your entire day food Intake. Also, you need to calculate your Body Mass Index and depending upon the value decided how much weight you need to lose. Feel free to ask more questions.

  5. A solid breakfast (no overdoing it) is great. No mixing of food groups also works well. We have also found that three solid (again, no overdoing it) meals are sufficient to keep weight off. The evening meal should be small though and as early as possible – close to 5:00. This aids in digestion and a good night’s sleep. We usually eat mostly fruits in this meal and get a bodily cleanse overnight in the process. Helps with regularity too!
    Thanks for sharing these insights. A pleasure reading as always.

  6. I’ve had to lose 20KG, about 20% of body weight. Been at it now 12months. Exercise and cutting down on the Carbs were the big deals I think.
    Interested in eating an early dinner. I had tried that, and then became hungry later in the evening (I’m a bit of a night owl), and have taken to making it more like 6:30-7pm.
    Might reexamine for 2016.
    Interesting short info packed pieces. Thanks
