Do you think you are fat? Do you want to lose weight? Here is your answer to a real way of SHEDDING THOSE POUNS
We are all aware of the zero size in LA, which is travelling at rocket speed to UK and the rest of the world. Besides fashion, keeping fit is the mantra in today’s world where pure food and air is a scarcity. Most people have desk jobs, which along with heavy pockets gives you heavy tummy and bummy. As if it were not enough you are further cursed with known and unknown diseases when you add those pounds.
I am just 5 feet and faced reality when I weighed myself after an eternity. I was terrified to discover my 68 kgs on top of my size 3 feet. That’s it!! I had to do something. I started my military regime with determination. Joined a local gym and made a food plan for myself. Within 10 days I lost 5 kgs and in less than 2 months I reached my target weight. I would like to share this with everyone and save people from spending unnecessary money on useless dieting pills and other expensive mechanisms. There cannot be a short cut to lose weight.
My timetable along with food options included at least an hour’s exercise everyday which allowed me to still eat those home made spicy foods: -
- Egg white and rockets or;
- Water poached egg. (Use water instead of oil. Add salt and pepper to taste)
- Any sugar free cereal with semi- skimmed milk. (Small portion) or;
- 1 bacon or sausage (not fried but oven cooked) or;
- Fruit smoothies.
- Tuna salad: – mix tuna, shredded carrot, rockets, red and yellow peppers and other green leaves. Squeeze a slice of lemon. Do not add salt.
- Green salad: – Squeeze a slice of lemon to yellow and red peppers. Add some shredded carrots and coriander leaves. Add a pinch of sugar if you may.
- Mixed fruits or;
- Cooked chicken or fish soup. (Not ready-mades)
I usually missed snack during the first few weeks but if you want to take it slow then options are:
- Bowl of fruits or;
- Smoothies; or
- Sugar free/low sugar snack bars or;
- 1 piece grilled fish with lots of vegetables or;
- Just stir fried vegetables.
- Bar-B-Q 1 piece of chicken and eat with lots of vegetables. Marinate chicken piece with maggi cube, mixed herb and some chilli powder and grill or BBQ it.
- Light soups with 2 bread sticks or;
- Pitta bread with homemade curry. (See my article on simple chicken curry)
- A glass of warm water with some lemon juice in empty stomach helps to lose weight Please remember to eat small portions.
- Avoid salt and sugar.
- Do not fast, as this may give future gastric problems.
- Jog or walk fast at least for 1 hour throughout the period of 10 days. Better if you join a gym and make use of the treadmill and the stepper.
