Since I had made up my mind about getting rid of the stubborn fat, I went for Intermittent Fasting. Unlike other people, weight loss was for me was slower. I only lost 5-6 kilos in 2 months. Then, I joined a community ‘Svasthya’ which helps people lose weight naturally.
I majorly adopted a low-carb diet and it was only then I could lose weight faster. I lost 5-6 kilos in a single month. I avoided outside food, rice, rotis and mostly stuck to eggs, veggies and non-veg fare. But they were all yummy and made out of healthy fats like ghee!
My breakfast: Breakfast would ideally be omelette (2 eggs), sauteed vegetables/sprouts salad/vegetable curry.
My lunch: Chicken/fish/eggs and any vegetable curry
Snacks: Almonds, walnuts, peanuts tossed in ghee, curd with pomegranate and flax, chia and sunflower seeds.
My dinner: I skipped dinner
Pre-workout meal: I used to work out an hour after having my breakfast.
Post-workout meal: None
I indulge in (What you eat on your cheat days): I rarely cheated while following the diet but I had refeed weekends at least once in a month wherein I used to eat what all I wanted, did not keep a calorie count. This helped me to come back to my diet with a sane mind.
Low-calorie recipes I swear by: Shallow-fried chicken in ghee with sauteed vegetables, salad (having at least 5 kinds of vegetables) with mayo+curd dressing, low-carb strawberry smoothies and pomegranate salad.
