Weight loss story: “I lost 35 kilos by following 18:6 intermittent fasting”


My breakfast: Fruits such as watermelon, papaya, apple, grapes, mango, custard apple, pineapple, orange. I wouldn’t call it breakfast as I always had it around 1 or 2pm in the afternoon.

My lunch: I ate carbs for lunch as I did not want to consume it for dinner. The diet plan wasn’t fixed and I used to change it every 10 days so that I don’t hit the weight loss plateau.

These are the meals I used to consume for lunch, each item are for separate days:-

– Poha

– 1/4 cup of oats with lukewarm water and 1 spoon peanut butter, 4 egg whites

– Jowar roti and any kind of dal

– Brown rice khichdi

– Daliya

– Egg bhurji and roti

– Basic daal chawal on some days

– Chole and bajra roti

– Nachni roti and green vegetable

– Sweet potato and salad

My dinner: For dinner, I tried consuming high fiber and high protein foods.

Each item mentioned are for separate days:

– Boiled chicken salad with broccoli, capsicum.

– 1 cup of arhar dal with cucumber

– 1 bowl of kale with pumpkin seeds

– Upma

– 250 gms of surmai fish (shallow fried)

– Plain dosa without butter on rare occasions

– 1 cup Moong daal with salad

– Raw salad (capsicum, grated coconut, cucumber, paneer, onion, pumpkin seeds)

Pre-workout meal: 5 to 6 almonds or cashew nuts and black coffee.

Post- workout meal: 1 glass of sattu (It’s a drink made with chana)

I indulge in (What you eat on your cheat days): No cheat days, as it would drive me back to unhealthy eating patterns.

Low-calorie recipes I swear by: I never counted calories because I feel it becomes too tedious to count and eat. Still, to mention, I feel any kind of pulse is great for weight loss.
